UMW Spirit

March 18th, 2011

So this is a bit harsh, but UMW Spirit week really is unfortunately a joke on campus. No one really knows what’s going on and it isn’t a huge focus in campus life. That’s why I decided to use a tumbleweed, because students can easily go throughout the week without realizing that it is spirit week. But because UMW isn’t a school known for its spirit, I can see why this is the case.

UMW and the Freedom Rides

In a strange way, I think this picture describes what the Freedom Rides Exhibit means to UMW.

What the students did in the Freedom Rides paved our future friendships at UMW.

Defining UMW

Since my time at UMW, I have only known the constant construction that has taken place throughout campus. In a way, it’s frustrating to see and hear the constant renovations, but I feel it really describes UMW and the direction it’s going because UMW is constantly growing in student size, structurally, and as an institution with a good reputation . This is why I used a picture from the construction of Eagle Village as my picture.
