4 College Senior

Diversity: There are ethnic or racial challenges on campus. No race or ethnicity is excluded on campus. Everyone is accepted and there is always an event for every ethnicity on campus

3 College Senior

Facilities: For the most part the campus is beautiful and always well kept and the facilities are always clean. However, the dorms do need to be updated

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of options for classes which I love. The professors are also really great. They are always available when needed either in person or through email.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Career services at Mary Baldwin College are very good with helping students find jobs or internships during the school year and after they graduate. Career services also send out many emails when there is a job fair in town

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: The food at Mary Baldwin College is pretty good but there are no late night options for students who wish to eat late.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus of Mary Baldwin College is very safe. I have always felt safe leaving the library or the gym late at night to go back to my dorm room

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: This college is a old college with buildings that have been renovated several times to take care of things that need to be. While other buildings are falling apart, i work with the Housekeeping and cleaning to bring in the students in August and these buildings have roaches and other bugs that are bad. Windows don't shut poor ventilation and often times water is cold.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I sometimes dont feel like i live on campus but at the same time i feel safe with some of the measures that are taken to help campus stay safe. underage drinking is a topic that is often brought up becuase we have programs that allow students to live on campus as early as 13 as a full time student. Dorms are clarified as to which ones are alcohol "friendly" and which ones aren't. We have rules in place that are strict on drinking and visitation which the residential aids stick to pretty well.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: i am open about my sexual orientation being a lesbian. I have not found anything on campus degrading anyone who is open about who they are because we are a women's college therefore we are more comfortable about being open and not receiving negative comments. The professors participate in a lot of activities that the SOULs group (students out understanding and learning) which is our LGBT group when we do things. We have safe zones posted in most classrooms to prevent being targeted. Our student life people are amazing and help whenever they can. We have started a Safe house living quarters for students who are out and want to live with other students like themselves as well as students who are supporting their friends after going through a special application process to live in this house.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: i live on campus in a dorm

3 College Sophomore

Academics: for the most part I looked forward to go to class because the professors were always nice.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love my advisors for my major and my minor. I love the courses that are required to take and the workload isnt seemed to be too hard for the time I have been taking classes for it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: i don't know that there is many Greeks on campus of MBC

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I wish we had a late night option of a 24 hour bar with food at least during the weekends. We are held to a standard of being a honest and responsible Baldwin woman so therefore we would still be fair with swiping our food cards. I think we could possibly have more options with food over a week it would be much appreciated. Not having Chinese and Mexican in the same day would also be awesome. Our tuition is enough that our choices for food should be more of a variety than just chicken and the occasional burger day. breakfast is very repetitive and i think we should have an egg bar to cook eggs for ourselves everyday of the week! I also think that we should have more than 3 types of cereal to choose from. At least change them every couple weeks!

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The gym could be made larger with more weights and more equipment that would help better our teams. I never personally wandered far from my dorm room for studying purposes but will begin to use them more often to focus better. The library struggled to have computers that would connect to the internet which was a complete hassle during exam week and "hell week" (the week before exams begin. There isn't many hangout spots on campus that are available to students so we commonly resort to dorms with confined spaces or off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't personally experienced anything on campus that I would have needed security.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: the party scene on campus is very secluded due to the amount of rules and "laws" set forth by the Judical board that require you to be a responsible woman on this campus. Apple Eve is probably the biggest event that i can recall being a party to bring in the event of Apple Day

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The only advise i can give it to make sure you have all of the paper work you need together to complete FAFSA including parent tax forms and your own if you have filed as well.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Living on campus of Mary Baldwin College is alright for me personally. I am not much a party animal because my classes are more important to me. I am also a cadet in the Virginia Women's institute for Leadership and that is a very demanding lifestyle to live in. The community is very supportive of my college and consistently are involved in many activities that we put on for the students on campus. We are involved with community events throughout the school year and we look to engage ourselves in anything that we can to make our area a better place to live in. Safety has become a heightened precaution in the area due to crimes committed around town but on campus there isn't too much to worry about. Shopping is seldom done in the little town of Staunton unless you are headed to the local Walmart or Martins. When you want to shop you have to travel 30 minutes to either Harrisonburg or Charlottesville.
