W&L is beautiful, pristine in red brick and white columns with well-manicured lawns. The students are equally well-kept and look like a real Tea Partay—some guys wear pink and madras with a touch of irony, but the campus has certainly embraced the prepstah look. Besides that, folks are generally motivated, whether it is to be an I-Banker like their daddy or to actually pursue some sort of liberal arts education. Students are intelligent, but hardly intellectual. Don't expect late night conversations over coffee about existentialism or that article you read in The Onion. Weekends are for outrageous frat parties where the beer, and often the cheap liquor too, flow freely. It's fun, really. The seasons are nice. The professors are good but not incredibly inspiring. The students are friendly and self-assured.

W&L is a nice school with nice people, but it's hardly politically correct or diverse. Don't expect rallies or protests or the drag shows popular at other little liberal arts schools.
