Campus Life

When you enroll at W&L, you join a vibrant, welcoming community. You and your peers will arrive with life experiences from many different places, and together, you will make W&L your own.

Our campus is at the center of a small, vibrant, two-college town that offers students abundant opportunities to become involved in the community and travel around the world. Students can take part in one of more than 100 clubs and organizations, and have access to abundant resources to develop programming suited to their interests.

Building Your Community

Residential Campus
As a residential campus, students at W&L have the benefit of getting to know each other and building a strong network of friends from their very first day.

Lifelong Friendships

People You Meet Along The Way
The people you meet at college are as important as the location. At W&L, you will be part of a welcoming community of individuals who have their own interests and dreams, and share core values of honor, integrity and civility.

Health and Wellness

Taking Care in Daily LIfe
Dining venues offer fresh, local and healthy options and wellness programs help students maintain healthy lifestyles. W&L provides indoor and outdoor facilities, including fitness centers, an indoor pool, and group exercise.

First-Year Experience

Getting to Know Each Other
