My D has decided to become an EAGLE for the Fall 2017 semester and we could not be happier. From the Open House my husband and I left thinking this is the place for her. My D is not a Football/Sorority/Party scene type. So she was not at all deterred by the fact the UMW is not known for those things in fact it was a plus for her that it isn’t. Her and her friends are more Artsy/Marching Band/Choral Group types and prefer Lacrosse and Volleyball for sports. The small size also was more attractive to her. The gorgeous campus and the suburban feel among other things made her decide on UMW over VCU. She has already made friends with other UMW admits and has roommates already lined up thanks to UMW FB page for the class of 2021 admits. We are also thrilled that she will be close to home. We live in NOVA about 30 minutes away from campus. Congratulations to all the admits! Go EAGLES!
