Take Their Word For It

“I fell in love with UMW when I realized that I could easily have meaningful relationships with professors, other students and staff members. Everywhere I go, I see someone I care about, and that’s what makes Mary Washington feel like home.”
Libby Simmons ’17, English
“I participated in a faculty member’s research team for two years at UMW and discovered that I loved it, which changed the trajectory of my entire life. I love being back as a professor now so that I can try to provide those same types of transformational learning opportunities to our current students.”
Dr. Holly Hollomon Schiffrin ’94,
