Visit Opportunities

Welcome to W&L! We invite you to visit our campus for a General Information Session with an Admissions Officer and a guided tour with a current University Ambassador. If you are unable to join us in Lexington, we invite you to take advantage of our virtual resources to explore our campus and W&L's abundant opportunities.

Campus Visit

An in-person campus visit experience typically includes an information session with a W&L admissions officer and a student-led campus tour. High school seniors may also register for a campus interview. Click the links below to learn more and schedule your visit.

Interviews for Seniors

Interviews are casual conversations that give you a chance to talk about yourself — your accomplishments, thoughts on the college search, and your interest in W&L. It also provides an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about W&L and our admissions process. Campus and regional interviews are available, as well as virtual interviews.

Virtual: General Insight

Learn about W&L
This informal, Q&A-style session will provide a personal look into life at W&L. An Admissions Officer will sit down with current Student Ambassadors to talk about their experiences at W&L and, most importantly, answer your questions.

"DIVE" Fly-In Program

The Diversity and Inclusion Visit Experience (DIVE) program provides students an opportunity to visit our campus in Lexington, VA. Over three days in the fall, participants will learn how to navigate the college admissions and financial aid processes and experience firsthand the opportunities, resources, and support for diverse students on our campus.

Virtual Info Session

We've recorded an information session, what you would hear during a campus visit, and posted it here for you and your families to watch.

From the town of Lexington to our arts and STEM programs, we have a suite of videos aimed at giving you a 1-minute look at several unique aspects of a W&L education.

Contact Your Admissions Officer

We pride ourselves on the one-on-one attention we give every student, which becomes more difficult when we cannot meet you in person. We encourage all students to contact their admissions officer, either by phone, email, or text message, to ask any questions you may have.

The Lived Experience

Nothing feels quite like being here — and we hope you'll be able to join us on campus soon — but in the meantime, explore these galleries for a glimpse of the W&L experience. See more on our Scene on Campus page.
