3 College Junior

4 College Junior

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Please see previous review regarding academics

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's everything I hoped it would be and more. All of the teachers are very knowledgeable an provide help whenever questions are asked.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I do generally feel safe being on campus, I have never run into a situation where I was not and I have crossed campus by myself on more than one occasion. I do believe that more measure should be taken due to the fact that we are all female with an open campus. I personally believe that there needs to be more security staff on campus during the night time instead of just two guards.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a nice variety of classes offered through the college. The professors are generally caring and accepting of their students, the small class sizes do help in creating a good working relationship between students and professors. There are several classroom options, in class, hybrid, and online, that is offered. I have enjoyed all but one of the classes I have took through the college.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know for a fact that the majority of majors require an internship within the field for graduation. I know that a new career service counselor was hired on campus and that she has already made her presence known to the sophomore class and will be working closely with us to get us on the right track.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am currently a residents adviser for our strictly freshmen dorm, as an upperclass woman and a person who has lived on campus for almost two years and I have seen the inside and room quality of our dorm buildings, I do believe that an upgrade is needed. All the buildings are old and the climate within the each is very hard to control. The social atmosphere is just fine and honestly is left to the residents and the housing process seems to work just fine. I do enjoy living on campus, and I have no desire to move off campus while attending school. I do, however, believe that the cost is just a little much for the conditions that we live in.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I personally do not take part in my schools athletic program. It is only known among those who choose to play a sport.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The diversity and inclusivity of my school is absolutely amazing and I am glad I chose to attend. I enjoy the single-sex atmosphere and the small campus. Being on a small campus allows for instructors to better know their students, and allow closer relationships between the student body and faculty

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I hate the food in the dinning hall and feel tuition is too high for nasty food most days. There aren't many food places in walking distance other than high class expensive restaurants. Not much opportunity either

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was pleasantly surprised to be more than challenged academically at CNU. I completed my first two years at a Virginia Community College and (with the rare exception) wasn't challenged academically. After transferring to CNU I found the rigorous scholastic environment I was seeking.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Mary Baldwin college! Wonderful learning environment!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my college. It's very diverse and accepts a plethora of cultures/lifestyles. The environment is friendly, and therapeutic because there is always so much art around. The professors and student body are all there to help you as you progress. It's an experience I'll never forget.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love how small the campus is and how friendly the faculty and students are. There are many opportunities for you to advance, not only academically but also in student government and in clubs.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose this option again, unless I hadn't got accepted to any other schools. While the close-knit experiemce is great, transfering credits is difficult. For someone like myself who is interewted in biologocal sciences, there is little to work with, for now. The school is working to build up that department, but current students are forced to be more creatove with current materials.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my choice. Mary Baldwin College is an amazing school and its nice to getting away from Miami into a new and exciting place. I can't wait to see amazing people and to start my new life.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Mary Baldwin has such a welcoming, comforting feel to it I can't imagine going to any other school.

Athletics: The gym is gross. Its on the opposite side of campus from everything else, and there is practically no equipment.Sports are kind of a joke. If you want to play a sport, you can, because sports are not competitive in anyway. I don't think we win things, like ever. It is nice that you can participate, just know we are not known for sports.

Party Scene: There are literally no parties. I'm not kidding. Its not that they are hard to find, or exclusive, they are nonexistent. Many posts say "go to JMU", but I'm here to tell you that going to JMU is a joke. Unless you already know someone that goes to JMU, you wont find a party. My friends and I once went to a party there, we found it by driving around for and hour and half until we thought we saw a party. The party consisted of drunk frat boys, there was nothing special or fun about it in any way. If you like to go to parties, even occasionally, this is NOT the school for you.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few "fancy" tourist restaurants in downtown. They normally cost around $15 for dinner, which is crazy for a college student. There's a Gelato shop, but it honestly gets boring as it is where everyone goes. There are some decent coffee shops, but the coffee is expensive. There is a burger king within walking distance, but it is a completely uphill walk. There are some chain restaurants around, such as Chili's, Red Lobster, McDonald's, Sweet Frog, and Starbucks. The issue is that none of them are within reasonable walking distance, like 20-30 minutes. There is a really good Mexican restaurant, though its about 10 minutes away from campus.

Administration: The Administration is pretty decent. They aren't really overly strict about anything other than parking, YOU WILL GET A TICKET. Other than that, the security officers are very nice. Students eat lunch with them all the time. The Administration is really amazing with working with you about absences.
