VIP (Visitor Identification Program) Begins

Beginning this semester, prospective students visiting campus with Admissions will be issued a red Mary Wash lanyard to wear while they are on tour.  Additionally, Washington Guides will be wearing red polos or fleeces (depending on the weather) as they lead campus tours.  It is our hope that visually identifying student visitors will help our UMW community members, which include students, faculty and staff, be aware of these very important people.

When you see guests on Campus Walk, in the dining hall, or in your building, say hello, introduce yourself, engage them for a minute and let them know this is a welcoming community through this personal touch.  Everyone on campus is a recruiter.  Please help Admissions show our guests one of UMW’s finest characteristics . . . our people!
