Although I did not hate my experience at MWC, I starting thinking early on that I wanted to transfer. It is much harder to get into MWC as an out of state student, but even so this was my safety school. I have not been challenged by the courses at all. The professors are nice but boring. Also, if you come here expecting small classes like they tell you, be warned. My first semester 3/5 of my classes had 80 people in them. They also tell you that there are no teaching assistants here, which is true, but they don't tell you how many adjunct professors there are.

When I first visited, I fell in love with Fredericksburg. It has tons of cute shops and restaurants, but no way to get there unless you love to walk. The "fred," the public transportation system is a joke. It is completely unreliable. Also, there is NO nightlife in Fredericksburg…let alone on the campus itself. Lots of students go home on the weekends, and for the ones that stay there is nothing to do. The are no parties on campus, so unless you like watching lifetime movies all weekend, or you like walking around in the nearby neighborhoods looking for parties that are always too crowded to move in and get broken up by the police in under an hour, don't come here.
