I might as well start off with a little background. I was an athlete in high school and got recruited to play baseball at this school. I visited and hung out with a couple of the guys on the team and i went to a few parties and it was fun. I ended up choosing this place because it was far away from my home state and I wanted to experience something new. HORRIBLE MISTAKE!

This place, hands down, sucks. The most boring school and the people are awful. The people basically are made up of all the weird kids from high school (the awkward kids that sat alone and never partied or drank in their life). Unless you are that kid, do not come here or else you will be bored out of your mind and want to transfer after your first semester, which is what I did.

There is no culture or anything that stands out at this school except for the beautiful campus. The dorms are nice and all, but the people ruin it all. I played sports and did a ton of clubs, and still the people were horrible. I had one exceptional political science class and my teacher was awesome. Other than that, everything else sucked.

I am trying to help you not hate your life. Make the right choice and go to a different school than UMW. I attend UNH now and I love it (my home state in NH).
