Campus Program Fees

What's Included?
As many participants testify each year, the Alumni College remains a bargain vacation. Our comprehensive fee, designed merely to recover W&L's costs, includes 10 meals, all instruction, books, films, performances, and incidentals.


"We were first time attendees, and our expectations (which were high to begin with) were exceeded!"

"Another magnificent revisiting of this great university town!"

"I was pleasantly surprised that such a broad swath of history could be adequately covered in a one-week Alumni College. Every lecture brought fresh insights about Rome's role in history and impact on civilization."

"What a joy to see people so knowledgeable and at ease with their subject matter. The high energy, enthusiasm, and sense of humor of the faculty was contagious. They are a credit to W&L."

"We had a wonderful time in every way. You nourished us: heart, mind, body, and soul. Thank you so very much."

"As a first-time participant, this program was a wonderful introduction to the Alumni College. I was very impressed by the format, staff, and amenities. Would definitely return."

"This is a high-quality program in content, teaching, and facilities."

"The quote by President Dudley comes to mind. I'll paraphrase: 'Awareness of one's ignorance is a virtue.' The value of the course was not so much what I did learn but what I now want to learn.
