The only trouble with living on campus at W&L is that you may never want to leave. Starting with your first year on campus, where you'll live in one of two newly renovated residence halls, you will become part of a community.

“The Honor System at W&L is the real thing. It pervades the entire campus. There is a sense that each individual on this campus matters, and so we treat each other with respect. The Honor System is at the very heart of the community.”
