Five-Star Festival

Join us March 2-4, 2023!

Five Star Festival

Washington and Lee is planning a special celebration created especially for our cherished alumni. We look forward to welcoming back all classes 1972 and earlier, featuring the 55th, 60th, and 65th reunion classes of 1968, 1963, and 1958 for the 2023 Five-Star Festival. Reunion celebrations will begin on Thursday, March 2 and lead directly into the Office of Lifelong Learning’s Institute for Honor programming which concludes with lunch on Saturday, March 4. All programs and activities for both events are included in your registration. It promises to be a great time to reunite with friends and reconnect with W&L.
