Have you Googled your student’s name lately? Ever? Go ahead, take a moment. Throw in some key words if you need to, such as UMW, Eagles, or the name of their high school or perhaps a significant extracurricular activity they’ve been involved in.
Sometime during my daughter’s sophomore year at UMW, she asked her mother and I to attend a study abroad fair/information center at the school.
When you #give2UMW on #GivingTuesday, the international day of philanthropy, you are investing in our students, our faculty, and our future.

During the course of the students’ winter break, UMW, in partnership with laundry vendor Caldwell & Gregory, will implement a new laundry monitoring and payment platform that will be available on December 21, 2019. SpeedQueen’s WashAlert app will replace eSuds which is currently used for these laundry functions.
There are several impacts of the upgrade:
- New SpeedQueen washers and dryers will replace existing Maytag machines located throughout campus.
- The machines will operate with an app called WashAlert, which accepts debit and credit cards as payment methods. The machines also accept coin payment. The EagleOne card payment option will no longer be supported for laundry.
- Framar and South Halls gain monitoring and credit and debit card capabilities.
A detailed installation schedule and additional information about the WashAlert app will be shared with the residential community in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please feel free to contact the EagleOne card office at EagleOne@umw.edu for more information.
