Fall Preview Days

Washington and Lee University invites you to experience campus through one of our Fall Preview Days on October 21 and November 11. This event is open to junior and seniors along with their families. This day provides a perfect opportunity for students who have not yet visited campus to gain a comprehensive view of Washington and Lee.

Plan Your Visit

During a campus visit, all prospective students and their families are invited to sit in on an group information session and take a campus tour. High school seniors also have the option of scheduling an admission interview.


An interview allows the Admissions Office the opportunity to get to know you a little better than your admission application alone might allow. On-campus interviews are available starting in May of your junior year through the end of November in your senior year. Off-campus interviews with Alumni Admissions Program (AAP) volunteers are available from September through January of your senior year.
