U.S. News & World Report has released its 2023 list of “Best Colleges,” which details what University of Mary Washington students and alumni already knew: UMW is one of the top liberal arts schools in the nation. UMW ranked 11th among public liberal arts colleges and 149th among national liberal arts colleges, public and private.
UMW was initially listed as a public regional university. The University asked to be recategorized as a public liberal arts college in this year’s rankings.
UMW was founded in 1908, and has been a beacon of educational integrity. Fredericksburg is proud of its revered university, and as U.S. News & World Report continues to release its “Best Colleges” lists in the coming years, we hope that they will continue to honor UMW in the ways that it deserves.
UMW is located at 1301 College Ave.
