Admissions Hosts Open House, Feb. 16

On Monday, Feb. 16, 2015, the University of Mary Washington will host an Admissions Open House. Over 400 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. for this event. Estimated guest count is 750 visitors.

Visitor parking has been reserved in the parking deck off of Route 1. Primary event locations are the Anderson Center, Lee Hall, Seacobeck Dining Hall, and residence hall/special interest tours in Randolph, Jepson, duPont, and Melchers. Expect to see increased foot traffic on campus (especially between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.) and curious newcomers in the dining facilities. Help them know their presence is a pleasure by anticipating the crowds and responding warmly, especially in the dining hall where crowds will be heavy between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Faculty and staff will be involved in the Academic Showcase (9 a.m., Anderson Center) and Academic Spotlights (Noon and 1 p.m., various locations), and student leaders will be panelists for an Inside Student Life session (10 a.m., Anderson). Thank you to all UMW partners who will spend part of their day highlighting our community. An agenda is posted here: http://admissions.umw.edu/undergraduate/files/2015/02/Agenda-Feb-16-2015.pdf.

If you’d like to be involved in Open Houses or have ideas, please contact Admissions at 540-654-2000 or email admit@umw.edu.

The Leadership Colloquium at UMW participated in a Women Build on Saturday, May 3 to kick off Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week. This national initiative occurs annually and will take place from May 3 -11. Now in its seventh year, National Women Build Week challenges women to devote at least one day to help build affordable housing or complete beautification projects in their local communities. The week also focuses on the homeownership challenges faced by women.

The UMW group teamed together with employees from the Greater Fredericksburg Habitat for Humanity to complete projects on a Stafford, VA home. Participants from UMW included: Andrea Cordray, Christina Eggenberger, Melissa Myers, Mary Parnell, Megan Petter, Lynne Richardson, Beth Searcy, Anika Wilson, and Aries Wilson. Colloquium advisory board members Lynn Pates and Jo Ellen Armstrong also participated in the build.

The Leadership Colloquium at UMW’s mission is to create a network and relevant learning environment to inspire women for a lifetime of leadership. Quarterly events and volunteer opportunities attract managers, administrators, educators, business owners and leaders of public, private and nonprofit organizations.
