Washington and Lee University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
W&L is an excellent liberal arts school located in a beautiful small town in rural Virginia. The professors are brilliant and accessible. Class sizes are small and personal. The campus culture is warm and full of generations of tradition.
Washington and Lee University, the 9th oldest school in the nation, is a historic, rigorous, and fulfilling college in the South. General Robert E. Lee served as president of W&L after the Civil War and instilled a sense of honor at W&L. We operate with a simple principle that members of the community will never lie, cheat, or steal, and an independent student body fully administers this honor system with no administrator involvement. This unique culture provides a one of a kind college experience where students self schedule final exams and leave their doors unlocked without fear of theft. Academically, W&L is the only liberal arts college with an accredited commerce program, offering degrees in accounting and business administration. Finance and Investment banking are popular careers after graduation and a strong alumni network ensures graduates of W&L are afforded some of the best internships and post grad job placements.
Washington and Lee is unbeatable. Class size is small, and there is a good work/play balance. The fact that professors do not conduct research means that they dedicate their full attention to teaching. If you have the opportunity to go to W&L, do not miss your chance.
