Im currently a Senior at Mary Washington. I have enjoyed my time here very much and feel that the school has defintely been a good experience. UMW's campus is beautiful, yet many of the buildings could use renovations. The faculty is currently shorthanded, mainly due to Virginia's budget problems (with VA's budget issues, UMW does not get the necessary funding that a UVA or JMU would get). The school work is very challenging and demanding (some Majors are easier than others, i.e the Business major is a borderline joke). Social life at UMW is very "cliquish" and centers largely around the sports teams. It gets difficult to walk down campus walk without recognizing everyone you pass, which could be a good or bad thing depending on what your perception of college is. Personally UMW, at 4,000 students, is still too small for me. Its a hell of a time though.
