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.
