Continue UMW traditions by helping us recruit the next generation of Eagles!

Hello Eagle family,

I hope you and yours are well during this unusual time in our lives. Our community, alumni included, are rallying to assist in bringing in our entering class during this unprecedented situation. Between #WhyMaryWash videos, legacy letters to parents, and alumni messages to students, we have been communicating all the reasons to choose Mary Washington.

I wanted to share that we have seen a slight uptick in late inquiries and applications for this fall. COVID-19 may affect high school seniors’ initial decision regarding where they will attend. Please know that you can refer a student and provide an application fee waiver. The Admissions team is working with students and families as they navigate the impact of this pandemic. And as President Paino recently shared with our community, our hope and plan is to welcome students on campus this August.

In addition to sharing an application fee waiver, feel free to share this video. I anticipate that some of these same reasons ring true for you as they do for the current students featured.

Be well,

Melissa Yakabouski ’94
Director of Undergraduate Admissions
