What Students Are Saying

4.34 Average Rating
This university is a really great place to be for people, who are big fans of outdoor activities. The rural setting and natural sceneries in Lexington are truly mesmerizing, and the people here are very friendly. The academic life is challenging, but it's worth it. The Greek system is quite dominant.

I toured W&L this past year, and I had the most amazing experience! I got to sit with a guidance counselor and talk with him and my mom for over an hour about the school and various programs that I was interested in, and then I went on a tour with a senior there who was very informative and helpful and even introduced me to some of his professors. It felt like the tour was catered specifically for me!
