Mary Baldwin is a mix of old and new, good and bad. It is a great place to live, and there are some things left to be desired, but they dont take away from other enjoyments

Mary Baldwin has many traditions that happen each year. From opening Convocation the weekend before classes start, to Apple Day, Founder's Day, Family Weekend, Spring Fling, and Reunion Weekends, Mary Baldwin is great at keeping traditions alive.

The Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership here at Mary Baldwin College is the only all female cadet corps in the nation. It is an ROTC program but I feel that it gives us an edge in leadership. Rather than a screaming and yelling environment, we are firm and we explain why things are being done the way that they are. This isn't to say that there is never yelling from the upperclass in the corps, but we try to build cadets rather than break them down. VWIL has really left a positive impact on my life.

If one thing can be said of Mary Baldwin, it is that the campus is beautiful. The trees, the grass, and the pathways are all immaculately cared for. There is a view of the mountains so perfectly framed by two flowering dog woods as to be heart achingly beautiful. The campus is mostly hilly, so there is a lot of uninterrupted green space for students to lounge about, though it's seldom taken advantage of until near time to leave for summer. Mary Baldwin also offers some of the most interesting, thoughtful, and useful professors imaginable. I've spent more than one evening in a professors home for dinner or paper discussions with other students. So many of the professors get themselves wrapped up in the achievements of their students that it isn't strange to see them weeping at graduation. They take pride in every mind they influence. This has it's pros and cons. Some professors are so concerned with the success and futures of their students that the grading can become a bit lax. Otherwise, they are simply amazing.

As a historic college, the school could benefit from a little remodeling and a revamped student center. It would also be great if the gym included an indoor pool. The computer labs and some of the classrooms do have nice new computers and Smartboards, so that is a plus. The school is steeped in tradition and there is always some sort of event or celebration. The library could use some more contemporary books and reference materials.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
