Microfridge Rental Program

In order to satisfy the demand for refrigerators and microwave ovens and avoid circuit overloads in our electrical system, Washington and Lee University's First-Year experience requests that the following guidelines be maintained. Due to safety and energy management features, the MicroFridge is the only cooking appliance we allow in students' rooms.  To order a MicroFridge from Melvin Corporation, please visit their website. A portion of the revenues from this program support the First-Year Leadership Council.
