For New Students

Welcome New Students!

We are so excited that you are joining the University of Mary Washington family. If you’re wondering what clubs and organizations there are for you to join, please visit our myUMW Organizations page. We also have this text-only list of active clubs, as well as list of inactive clubs in case you’re interested in getting one of those started back up.

We also encourage you to follow the Office of Student Activities and Engagement on social media  (@SAEUMW) to start engaging with fellow students through virtual engagement opportunities, and to learn what’s happening on campus once the fall semester starts.

If you’re not sure what to get involved in, we encourage you to fill out this Involvement Questionnaire and we’ll send back an individualize club recommendation list.

Don’t forget to SAVE THE DATE for Club Carnival, Wednesday, August 24, 2022 from 5-7pm on Ball Circle. Attending Club Carnival is hands-down the best and easiest way to get involved at Mary Wash. Get excited!

  • Looking to jump right into a leadership position? Consider running for one of our many elected positions in groups like the Student Government Association, Class Council, Honor Council, Student Conduct Review Board, and Finance Committee. Each of these groups will be holding interest meetings in early September, but be sure to drop by their table at Club Carnival, and check out the election timeline here.
