A Letter to My Fellow Alumni

As Alumni Association president, I’m privileged to represent more than 35,000 Mary Washington graduates worldwide. Regional alumni networks are becoming re-invigorated. I encourage you to get involved. Check the Alumni page for events in your area.

Mary Washington students are actively engaged in high caliber academics and more than 100 clubs and 20 NCAA teams. Student service groups are busy with activities such as Alternative Spring Break, Good Neighbor Day, and Relay for Life.

Campus is as beautiful as ever. Newly renovated Mason and Randolph halls have state-of-the-art capabilities. A pedestrian bridge over U.S. 1 connects the main campus to Eagle Village, with student apartments, student-friendly businesses, and the Hyatt Place hotel, slated to open this fall. The Convergence Center, a high-tech hub of academic resources, is under construction. We’ll break ground in May for the Campus Center, with student activity areas, dining services, and a ballroom. Happily, the new structures’ Georgian-style exteriors maintain the traditional Mary Washington look.

Reunion Weekend is May 31-June 2! Alumni with graduation years ending in 3 or 8 should receive brochures, but all alumni are welcome. To register online, visit the Alumni page and follow Reunion Weekend links. I promise fun for all, with class parties Friday evening, Alumni College sessions led by master teachers, campus tours, children’s games, a Ball Circle Class Picnic, and an All Class Party Saturday night. So, contact classmates and join us! I hope to see you there.
