Life at UMW

Find out more about UMW!


The InterLink mentor program connects each incoming international student with a current UMW student to help ease the transition into life at UMW.  Our InterLink mentors are highly involved members of the UMW community who have a special interest in cross-cultural interaction. InterLink hosts several excursions throughout the year such as trips to the “Halloween Haunt” at King’s Dominion, the rodeo, the cherry blossom festival in Washington, D.C., and colonial Williamsburg.  Additionally, InterLink coffee hour is held every month at the CIE office for all international students and their mentors.
