We know that the best way to experience Mary Baldwin College is to start with a tour of our scenic 54 acres overlooking downtown Staunton. The talented student guides of the President’s Society will make sure you not only know your way around campus, but that you can also hold your own in a conversation about MBC’s historical highlights.
What you do with the rest of your visit is as distinctive as you are. Set up an informal conversation with one of the faculty members who might work with you on a research project. Get a glimpse of authentic student interaction at lunch in Hunt Dining Hall. Stick around for an International Café talk in the Spencer Center or a basketball game in the Physical Activities Center. Our Admissions team can personalize your visit so you see what you’re interested in.
Close to Campus
Mary Baldwin’s proximity to Staunton, Virginia’s vibrant downtown means you’ll find shopping, dining, art, and ways to enhance classroom learning just a few steps away.
Come for the day, or stay for the night. Sign up now, or browse the options.
Monday–Friday, times vary
Saturdays, 9 and 10 a.m. (September through May)
If a one-on-one or small group visit is your style, ask us about weekday and Saturday availability. A student or staff guide will help you explore campus, and the Admissions team will work with you to customize your experience.
Special Visit Days
MBC’s Fall Visit Day and Spring Visit Day, usually in November and March, are opportunities to convene on campus with other families — and maybe even meet a few of your future classmates.
Several overnight visits are scheduled each semester for high school seniors and those interested in the Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership or the Program for the Exceptionally Gifted. These events are a great way to deepen your connection to campus life and attend a class.
