mwc has a beautiful campus. the town is kind of boring, but the historic part is adorable with antique shops, etc. i heard mwc was REALLY HARD academically - but to tell you the truth, just keep up with your work and you'll be fine. its just like any other normal 4 year public college (soon to be university). not too much of a party school so don't expect parties. expect more going out to eat, shopping, movies, etc. with your friends…unless your lucky enough to know somebody who goes to JMU one hour west in harrisonburg where there is ALWAYS a party going on hehe. people here are really friendly and you will have no problem fitting in. very few minorities, however. cultural void. we called it MWC =
mostly white college
great school though!!!! COMEEEEE you won't regret the GREAT experiences you'll have!! oh yeah, if you want to be a teacher this is the place to go they have a 5 year program that you'll graduate with your masters. it's really the best way to go. no worries about applying to graduate school! good luck in your decision, but def. consider mary wash, you won't regret it!!!
