I loved my experience at W&L, the professorsBrightPhilosophy
I loved my experience at W&L, the professors were amazing, there was a lot of one-on-one, the library and other facilities on campus were great, staff in general is very warm and friendly. Nature in Lexington and around is beautiful.

I chose W&L because I wanted a quiet place to learn and this is exactly what I got from it. The study abroad experiences were also wonderful learning opportunities I will never forget.The social life at the school is something I never understood or got into, it has always seemed very empty, and there is hardly an alternative. But the academic experience and the many professors whom I will never forget, more than made up for the lack of social life.

This place is unexpectedly amazing.Quite BrightUndecided
This place is unexpectedly amazing. The people are what really make it the best university. Just walking down the street there are friendly smiles and random hellos that really make you feel at home. The night life here is absolutely awesome. Whether you are one to go out every night, or one to never go out, there is always something for you to do. Boredom is not a thing here, but hustle bustle is also not a thing. You are leisurely busy. However, before committing to this school, make sure you are prepared for extremely difficult classes, but if you are willing to put in the time it is worth while.

To me Washington and Lee is the perfectBrightPreMed and Medical
To me Washington and Lee is the perfect balance between challenging, constructive academic learning and fun parties/girls. Everyone has a work hard mentality on campus during the day, but everyone is friendly and only competitive in a positive way. At night however, after the work is done for the day, the town lights up like you would never imagine. No one I know would dream of going to another university, and I know that this is the best place for me.
