Admissions Open House Set for Saturday

On Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, the University of Mary Washington will host its first Admissions Open House this academic year! About 280 prospective students (typically transfer students and high school seniors, juniors and sophomores) and their families will visit campus between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. An estimated 800 guests will visit.

For details, see a sample agenda. Visitor parking has been reserved in the parking deck near Route 1 and on Double Drive. Primary event locations are the Anderson Center, Lee Hall, the Hurley Convergence Center and the University Center. There also will be campus and Mason Hall tours. 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!

We encourage you to show your support and tweet to @MaryWash. We would like to see #UMWOpenHouse trending throughout the day.

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