Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students tend to find their experience at Mary Washington to be a unique one. It really is what you make of it. With its small-school benefits and focused education, if you want to be academically-focused, it is possible. By meeting people through various sports and clubs, if you want to be socially focused, this is also possible. There are complaints from a decent portion of the student body that the social scene is lacking, but people who are enjoying themselves at the University tend to turn a deaf ear. While the social scene isn't exactly bumping in comparison to other bigger universities, you can still have fun here, even if it takes that extra push to find ways to have fun.

Due to its small size, you will never feel like just another number at this school. It's common to frequently run into people you know and to recognize anonymous faces you see regularly, just by walking to classes. A few students will claim that the school is too small, but with a regular high school size of 4,000 students, many students tend to find the size comfortable. The size may be awkward for one-night stands, as it's no surprise to run into the person the next day at the dining hall, but it is beneficial in that there is easy access in getting notes from familiar classmates. Also, creating a more personal relationship with the professor is a benefit of Mary Washington's size, as instructors are usually willing to answer your questions or sometimes even curve grades. The small-school atmosphere may not be for everyone, but it certainly has its upsides.
