Visit W&L 

The best way to decide if Washington and Lee is the right fit for you is to come to campus. Open Monday–Saturday throughout the fall and spring and weekdays throughout the winter and summer, the Admissions Office is eager to meet you. A visit may include:

  • group information session
  • a student-led tour
  • and, for seniors, an interview and class visits

Spring Break & Exams

When planning your visit, please be aware of our Exam and Spring Break schedules. You are still welcome on campus during these times, but, as classes are not in session, we cannot schedule class visits, and fewer current students will be on campus to meet.

- Exam Week: April 11 - 19
- Spring Break: April 20 - 24

Schedule a Visit

A student-led tour combined with a general information session is the best way to learn about life at W&L. Information sessions are led by a member of the admission team and provide an overview of the admissions process while providing visitors an opportunity to talk with admissions staff. 


Interviews for high school juniors and seniors give you a chance to share your interests, accomplishments and educational goals with us. Interviews may be held on campus or off-campus with a representative. 

Class Visits

Class Visits are for high school seniors and current applicants only and must be scheduled by phone. To request your class visit, call us at (540) 458-8710, at least one week before your desired visit date. Let us know 1 or 2 subject areas of interest and what time you will be available to attend the class. We will provide confirmation details as soon as possible. 

Fly-In Programs

The Diversity and Inclusion Visit Experience (DIVE) is a selective, all-expense paid fly-in program for curious, committed, high-achieving students from diverse backgrounds. Offered several times throughout the year, the DIVE program will introduce you to everything that W&L has to offer.

Can't Make it to Lexington?

W&L hosts several events each year in the U.S. and abroad. These events can be great opportunities to meet admissions counselors and W&L alumni in your area. Our alumni interview program even allows you to complete your admissions interview locally.
