University Ambassadors Meet your guides to life at W&L

Meet the University Ambassadors, a group of students passionate about W&L, and your guides to campus life. When you come to campus to visit, the University Ambassadors will show you around campus, bring you to dorms and classrooms and answer all of your questions along the way. You may have already met some of them if you came here in the fall. Have a question that you'd rather ask a student about, contact any one of the University Ambassadors and they'll have an answer for you!
