“…From a parent perspective, I wanted to thank you and all the admission staff and professors/teaching staff who worked during your Open House.  I was incredibly impressed with the event and the amount of work that must have gone into the preparation and production of the event.  “Wow” is all I can say. The quality of department presentations, tours, their passion for UMW, lunch, and information we gathered from all the UMW participants at the open house was SUPERB! I know that kind of thing doesn’t happen by accident – it takes time and lots of effort on the part of your larger college community…”
