Student Outreach

Dear UMW Student,

The multicultural and social justice student leadership organizations at the University of Mary Washington welcome you! With each new academic year, we look forward to new faces, new ideas, new experiences, and new members – you! As a new student, you will find that our University has over 100 clubs, many of which may interest you. The students at UMW would like to take the time to give you an introduction to the many opportunities some of our multicultural and social justice student organizations have to offer.

All of the student organizations welcome students of all genders and all backgrounds – interest is our only requirement. Be sure to stop by our tables at Club Carnival and the Cross Cultural BBQ for more information, and to find out the schedule for our meetings during the academic year.

We look forward to meeting you!

Yours truly,
