The Admissions Office will host Destination UMW on Saturday, March 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is for admitted students, and the goal is to yield them for 2019-2020 academic year. Nearly 375 students and their families are expected to be on campus, making the total guest count over 1,000. Among attendees will be the finalists for full-ride scholarships. 

Students will attend a sample class lecture with a professor and a student engagement activity with current student leaders. Nearly one-half of the students registered have already paid an enrollment fee and will receive their First-Year Seminar (FSEM) and residence hall assignments during the event.  

While the Office of Admissions sponsors these events, the entire campus assumes the role of host. Guests frequently comment on how “friendly, helpful, and engaging” our UMW community is!   

Their impression of UMW and their decision to enroll depends on how they feel while they are here. Thank you for going the extra mile on these important recruitment days!   

The Office of Admissions appreciates your involvement in and support of these signature programs that shape the Class of 2023.
