There are so many fun things to do when visiting The University of Mary Washington it's hard to keep count! Here are the 5 Campus Hot Spots that you just can't miss when taking your own trip!

THE UNIVERSITY CENTER: Opening just two years ago, Mary Washington's University Center offers 100,000 square feet of collaborative space for students to meet, study, watch some TV, and eat. The site is also home to key student services and meetings spaces!

PALMIERI PLAZA: Located between the three oldest buildings on campus, the Plaza is a favorite student gathering place! There’s also plenty of space for the famous UMW pastime, "bench-sitting," listed in Urban Dictionary as a "leisure activity unique to the university."

JAMES FARMERS BUST: The commissioned bust celebrates great Civil Rights leader James L. Farmer, who served as a distinguished Professor of History and American Studies at the university for more than a decade. Farmer was a member of the Civil Rights movement’s "Big Four," & organized the 1961 Freedom Rides that desegregated interstate bus travel and left an indelible mark on many Mary Washington students.

BROMPTON: Home to UMW's president, Brompton has been described as one of America's most historic houses. Located in history-rich Fredericksburg, the building was at the center of the Civil War's 1862 Battle of Fredericksburg and later served as a Union hospital.

THE CONVERGENCE CENTER: Connected to Mary Washington's Simpson Library, the Convergence Center is a hub of technology and multi-media capabilities. With a media production studio and multimedia editing lab, the space is home to the university’s Speaking and Writing Center, Digital Knowledge Center and Digital Auditorium.
