Diversity and Inclusion Visit Experience


Thank you for your interest in the Diversity and Inclusion Visit Experience (DIVE) at W&L! Each year, DIVE serves as an introduction to academic and residential life at W&L for prospective students from diverse backgrounds. DIVE also helps guide prospective students through the college application process—from doing college research and crafting your essays, to applying for financial aid and deciding where to enroll.

We encourage the following students to consider participating in DIVE:

  • Students of color (Black or African American; Latinx; Asian, Pacific Islander, Desi, West Asian; Indigenous, Native American, First Nations; multiracial identities)
  • Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch
  • Students who are eligible for the Pell Grant or the W&L Promise
  • Students who are undocumented
  • First-generation college-going students
  • QuestBridge-affiliated students

Our next DIVE program will take place virtually on Saturday, December 4th from 12:00-1:15 pm Eastern. Register for our virtual event here we look forward to you joining us! If you have any questions, please email dive@wlu.edu.
