Why W&L?

The opportunities students have at Washington and Lee allow them to grow as scholars, compete as athletes, evolve as leaders, succeed in their careers and apply their skills to lead lives of consequence.

Affordability: Students with the intellect to excel and the selflessness to care should have the opportunity to lead. Through generous need-based aid and our renowned merit-based Johnson Scholarship, we aim to make our first-rate education accessible.
Community: Why do so many students love W&L? Our community welcomes everyone. Our honor system develops trust. Our faculty believe in our students. Our campus has a place for you.
Community: At its core, W&L’s Honor System is a student-governed code of conduct that ensures fairness and honesty. Our students are expected not to lie, cheat, or steal, but that’s only part of the equation.
Community: The number one thing to understand about life at a small college is that the campus is happening. Lively student activities programming, a thriving arts and music scene, 24 NCAA Division III sports, and outdoor adventure on the edge of campus ensure there.
Opportunities: With a core liberal arts college, an undergraduate school of business, and a law school that integrates undergraduate studies in innovative ways, Washington and Lee University is uniquely capable of meeting the challenges of the modern world.
Opportunities: Washington and Lee University's innovative 4-week, one-class Spring Term at the end of each academic year is interdisciplinary, intense, and anything but traditional.
Outcomes: There's a reason that Kiplinger's Personal Finance, Niche.com, Time/Money magazine, and U.S. News & World Report all consider Washington and Lee one of the best college values in the nation.
Outcomes: Graduates will be prepared for lifelong learning, personal achievement, responsible leadership, service to others, and engaged citizenship in a global and diverse society.
