Welcome to the 2017 UMW NEST, New Experiences for Students Transitioning. We look forward to providing an exciting and fulfilling experience as you embark on your UMW journey. During NEST, you will be introduced to concepts of service, leadership and cultural/social justice as practiced here at Mary Washington. As a participant, you will be challenged to think, engage and reflect in a variety of settings designed to help you grow in self-knowledge and better understand and enhance your interests. Participation in NEST requires you to attend the June orientation sessions. We appreciate your interest and are excited to meet you!
