  • I am a past student here

    By far I enjoyed attending Mary Baldwin. It was difficult on my health because there are limited options for disabled students and I had an issue with walking one semester and the stairs created huge problems for me.

    The women that you meet here are going to be apart of your life for a very long time. Especially since Baldwin has gateways that fits the personality of each student accepted. In these gateways you will build close knit friends and even feel like family before the years are through.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Mary Baldwin is a nice school. The entire campus streaches over hills and grass covers more than buildings do. There is a small city walking distance from the school. I'm talking directly across the street.
