Rekindle the Wonder of Discovery and the Goodwill that Naturally Comes with It

Campus Programs

Through the Alumni College, we encourage you to satisfy your enduring curiosity about the world, to think with us about history, philosophy, literature, the arts and sciences, and current events while engaging the expertise of the W&L faculty.

Travel Programs

Through Traveller, W&L's educational adventure program, you'll get to know the world firsthand, to experience different cultures inside their borders, to appreciate different world views, and to savor the inspiring beauty and history of other lands.

W&L At Home

For the armchair learner, W&L offers several virtual classroom experiences.  These include online webinars on current issues; “After Class,” a series of podcast interviews with university faculty; livestreamed talks by Alumni College faculty and distinguished visitors; a Virtual Book Club featuring a new selection every quarter; and “Sheltering in Place,” a reading list of favorite books as recommended by W&L faculty.  Through “W&L at Home,” you’re never too far from the adventure of lifelong learning.  

"There's not enough space here to say how absolutely wonderful, amazing, incredible, awesome and fabulous the safari was! Each day better than the day before, each place so beautiful and awe-inspiring. The weather was perfect, the wildlife viewing beyond my wildest dreams!"
