Learning for everyone

Mary Baldwin was founded in 1842 on the belief that everyone deserves access to a high-quality college education. We were one of the first East Coast institutions to purpose-build degree programs for returning and nontraditional learners. Now we’re creating the most personalized and value-oriented learning experience in the U.S.

Whether you’re on the field or cheering from the stands, you can’t escape the Fighting Squirrel spirit (our fun-loving mascot). Aside from our 13 Division III athletics teams, you can stay active on campus through club sports and organizations like the hiking or equestrian club.

And don’t miss the countless opportunities to engage with the arts at Mary Baldwin, from student performances in music and theatre to a rotating series of artistic exhibitions and world-renowned guest musicians performing on campus.
