The "Center" of It All, Part II

Sunday, Sep. 24 at 7:00 PM ET

This Admissions Academy session will feature three academic centers that provide unique programming and support students of all majors in their coursework, research, and professional endeavors — the Houston H. Harte Center for Teaching and Learning, the Roger Mudd Center for Ethics, and the Shepherd Program for Poverty and Human Capability Studies. Join our co-hosts to learn more about how these centers and programs support W&L's mission of preparing students to be engaged citizens in a global and diverse society.

Distinct from the Admissions Academies listed above, which are designed to help high school seniors navigate the application process, the programs below are open to everyone interested in learning more about W&L.

Virtual Admissions Programs

Throughout the fall, we will host virtual Admissions Programs for prospective students of any class year and their families. W&L Admissions Officers will present general information about the college and invite participation from current student guests. There will be time at the end for audience Q&A. Each program covers the same topic, so no need to attend more than one. Register by clicking a link below.
