Access Admissions Open House Saturday

On Saturday, November 10, 2018, the University of Mary Washington will host its Access UMW Admissions Open House. About 175 prospective students (typically transfers and high school seniors, juniors, and sophomores) and their families will visit campus between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The estimated guest count is 500 visitors.

A sample agenda is posted here. Visitor parking has been reserved in the Thornton Street lots, the George Washington Hall lot, the Jefferson Square lot, outbound Double Drive, and the parking deck off of Route 1. Primary event locations are the University Center, Dodd Auditorium, Lee Hall, the Hurley Convergence 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.

We encourage you to show your support and tweet to @MaryWash. We would like to see #UMWOpenHouse trending throughout the day. If you’d like to be involved in Open Houses or have ideas, please contact Admissions at 540-654-2000 or email
