5 College Junior

Academics: The professors are very helpful and are always willing to discuss things and recommend things to help you along the way. I only wish there was a doctorate level English program at MBC.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It is wonderful being in my major, it is interesting, the people in this field are very helpful and encouraging I love it !

4 College Sophomore

Academics: it is great, students are very involved so if you need help not only can you get help from your teacher but students will help you also

1 College Freshman

Academics: Do not go to Mary Baldwin College! It is the worst school you could ever go to. There are no parties on campus. They have these little mixer things, which consists of a bunch of girls grinding on each other. If you want a good fun college experience, with excellent academics I suggest you go to other school. There application process is not selective, so anyone can get into this school. The traditions here are very stupid, they have this thing called Apple Day, which is there "homecoming" and all you do is pick apples off the ground. If you like picking apples of the ground, eating NASTY food that will make you vomit, sharing bathrooms with DIRTY females, and being around WIERD girls, MBC is the place for you. IF not I highly suggest you go somewhere else. Trust me most of the freshman here are transferring, and the senior class here is only like 40 girls, and it started out with 240 people. mmmmmm something doesn't sound right, you do the math.

College Freshman

Academics: I'm currently undecided on my major. MBC works well for undecided students. There are so many gen eds that you get at least two full years to poke around before you have to declare. One thing to note is, you should at least know whether you want a liberal arts major or an engineering-type major, because if you want the latter, MBC may not be the best for you. There's an engineering program that MBC offers in partnership with UVA, but the program is not for everyone.
