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.

There is great wireless access and it is available all over campus. The internet speed at MBC is great! Students receive 1000 free sheets per semester for printing and there is printing available in various computer labs on campus, the library and the student learning skills center. Printing can be done double-sided or single-sided. We have computer labs in the library and in academic buildings. Laptops can also be rented out to use in the library. Students do not need to bring personal computers or printers, but they are more than welcome to if they would like.

Downtown Charm – There are plenty of great places to eat downtown. They are all only a short walk away and locally owned. Some of the places are a little pricey like the Pompei Lounge or Zynodoa. There are some affordable options though. Baja Bean Co. is a great place to go for some southern Cali-Mexican food. Their prices are reasonable and the food is great. If you're looking for desert, right next door you'll find The Split Banana, home of the most amazing gelato, ice cream, and sorbet I've ever eaten. They make everything fresh daily. It's a little pricey, but well worth it! For an evening coffee run, you'll want to go to Coffee on the Corner. It's a small place but it's incredibly popular among students. It's also one of the closest venues to campus.
