Enrichment and Support

Enrichment and Support

From your first day on campus until graduation, we want to make sure you have the support you need to not only succeed at W&L but also grow as a student and person. Whether you're seeking an opportunity to experience college life before you ever set foot in a classroom, looking for academic guidance about your studies, or hoping to plot your post-graduation path, W&L has outlets for you to receive the empowerment you need to thrive.

Academic Support

Academic resources for students extend well beyond the classroom. Faculty advising, peer tutoring, career development, and writing assistance all help to ensure that students receive the support they need to succeed in their four years at W&L and beyond.

Fellowship Advising

We encourage and support students who pursue nationally competitive fellowships. In fact, we have an office on campus dedicated to helping our students select and apply for opportunities they feel will most benefit them both during and after their time at W&L.

Advanced Immersion and Mentoring

The Advanced Immersion and Mentoring (AIM) program instills within incoming first-year students an increased sense of confidence and belonging.  Participating in a fully-funded five-week experience on campus before classes start, AIM Scholars can participate in a variety of disciplines such as: STEM; Archaeology; Journalism; Theater, Dance, and Film Studies; and more.

Career and Professional Development

The Career Development Center complements the educational experience of students by providing the guidance and resources needed to develop and implement their academic and career plans.
