Admissions Hosts Open House March 30 & Spring Break Visitors March 26-April 6

It’s high school spring breaks throughout the state over the next two weeks.  As a result you will see increased visitors on tour beginning March 26 through April 6.  We encourage you to say hello and introduce yourself to our guests if the opportunity presents itself while the group may be visiting your building.  (Visitor parking is on Double Drive and additional spaces have been reserved in GW.) Our tours will be on campus beginning at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

On Friday, March 30, 2018, University of Mary Washington will host an Admissions Open House.  Approximately 300 prospective students (typically high school seniors, juniors, and sophomores, as well as transfers) and their families will visit and tour the campus between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.  The estimated guest count is 900 visitors.

A sample agenda is posted here.  Visitor parking has been reserved in the parking deck off of Route 1 and on Double Drive.  Primary event locations are the Anderson Center, Lee Hall, the Hurley Convergence Center, the University Center, and campus/residence hall tours in Mason. Expect to see increased foot traffic on campus and curious newcomers at the Top of the University Center (fourth floor), especially between noon and 2 p.m.

While the Office of Admissions sponsors these events, the entire campus assumes the role of host. Our visitors frequently comment on how “friendly, helpful, and engaging” our UMW community is.  Let them know they are welcome and we want them at UMW.

Thank you for your partnership in showcasing all that is great about UMW.
