Holiday Ornament

UMW Book Club

UMW Book Club members have decided to meet every 2 months instead of every month. The next meeting will be on January 23, 2018, where we will be discussing My Reading Life by Pat Conroy. The Amazon description reads: “Conroy revisits a life of reading through an array of wonderful and often surprising anecdotes. It would hardly be an exaggeration to claim that reading has saved his life, and if not his life then surely his sanity.” Readers who would like to be added to the Book Club email list may send their information to mmock@umw.edu, or call Margaret Mock at x1017.


UMW Discounts

When shopping in Fredericksburg, remember to ask for discounts! Many local businesses offer discounts to UMW students and employees, as long as you show your EagleOne card.
