So I was walking to Middle Hall yesterday to visit a friend when this view made me stop in my tracks. This campus truly is beautiful, and so is Maryland. I can’t believe how much this place already feels like home. The people are incredible and so loving, the professors have already blown me away with how wonderful they are and how engaging their lectures are, and the campus is gorgeous! I really need to walk around and re-remind myself why I fell in love with this place. 
I remember crossing over the beautiful Chester river and immediately knowing: This is Home. I had visited other colleges, but seeing the old, classy, beautiful Chestertown with the charming old buildings and small town feel was what made the difference for me.
However, it didn’t stop with Chestertown, for when I stepped foot on Campus and headed to the Casey Academic Center to find smiling faces that greeted me by name I knew the Chestertown charm filtered right into the school. You aren’t just a student here at WAC, you are family. And this is why I love WAC so much. It really is a home.

It’s always nice to walk different ways to places. It’s good to switch up the routine sometimes.

There’s no specific place where I fell in love with Washington College. I’m an international student so I didn’t have the opportunity to visit the campus and experience, first hand, what life is like here.

I had to trust in the photos, videos and words of what the admissions officers told me. And I’m so incredibly glad that I did.

Everything is exactly how I imagined it would be and much more- from the classes to people to professors to clubs to parties. I actually want to get up at 8.30AM and go to class (although, I wouldn’t mind a few extra hours of sleep). WAC makes me want to learn.

I spend the bulk of my time in the library, I think. I study because the curriculum demands that you stay in constant touch with your work. The Miller Library is beautiful. Had I visited campus before making my decision, I think I would have fallen in love with the library.

This is the first floor with rows of books and computers. The second floor is the ‘Quiet floor’ with absolute silence and rooms for group study and of course, shelves of many books. The ground floor has the media center and the archives- I haven’t taken a good look around downstairs, yet.

Let me tell you, though- the walk to the library is a sign that I probably eat too much of the delicious food at Hodson. It has an incline from the point I cross the road from my dorm hall- Minta Martin. I can hear my calves cursing the pizza in my stomach.

A side view of Minta Martin! :) It’s just beside Reid Hall, Queen Anne and Caroline.

One of the main reasons I picked WAC is because of the people I spoke to during my admissions process about financial aid and questions in general. Although the correspondence was supposed to be formal, I felt wanted and like I would be taken care of.

And it’s been just that. WAC takes care of me and more importantly- makes me learn to take care of myself in ways I didn’t think I could. Help is always there if I need it. But, WAC makes me challenge myself to try things out on my own, first- whether it’s figuring out a laundry machine or writing a paper.

You will always have a friendly face here. Although, I didn’t have the opportunity to see that for myself before I came here, I’m glad I took this leap of faith because I can’t imagine myself anywhere else.

We’re glad you fell in love! <3

Did not manage to get a picture that quite captures the beauty, but this new sign is really awesome. My camera was not about George’s signature but trust me when I say it looks amazing. I can’t wait to see how they finish it.

It’s a classic story - a man, a goose, an app, and a special place that brings them all together until fate tears them apart.

Don’t miss your chance to fall in love with Washington College.

In 2001, students enjoyed a night of music and comedy with guests Tim Reynolds and Wayne Brady. Brady’s set included a Whose Line Is It Anyway? style performance complete with an improv song about May Day.
