I've never been to Lexington before. What is it like?
Lexington is a friendly, vibrant, and historic small town. It's a community where you can be a regular at the local coffee shop or your favorite cafe. It's your home away from home where you can explore and give back in meaningful ways.
I'm an international student. Can I still work while I am a student?
Students with F and J visas are allowed to work on campus up to 20 hours per week when school is in session and more during breaks, but to work you must obtain authorization. Interested? Check out our Employment Options.
I am worried about being homesick without family nearby.
A lot of students - international and domestic - may experience homesickness. Thankfully W&L's community is close-knit and supportive and often feels like a second home.
International students can also apply to get an American host family. Find out more about the Host Family Program.
Where can I learn more about International Education?
Look at our Center for International Education website. They will be reaching out to international students regarding necessary forms and international travel to campus. If you have any additional questions please reach out to your admissions Counselor .
