Exploration is at our core.
As a liberal arts university, students are encouraged to study what interests them, conduct research, and pursue global learning. Our hands-on curriculum is designed to expose you to all we have to offer and help you develop the skills you need to get the most out of your education.
One of the hallmarks of the W&L college experience is the accessibility of our faculty. With an 8 to 1 student to faculty ratio and 96% of classes enrolling fewer than twenty-five students, you can immerse yourself in courses while benefiting from the personal attention and guidance of your professors.
