According to the students at the small and southern Washington & Lee University, W&L could also stand for "White and Loaded” Says one junior, “preppy doesn’t even come close to describing the amount of Vera Bradley, croakies, and J.Crew/Polo outfits …” Another says, “Watching the painstakingly well-dressed students roam the historic Colonnade on their way to class, one could easily mistake this school for a movie set.” But if you think the preppy student body at W&L sounds too polite to party, you’ve got another thing coming. “W&L students are expected to be as aggressive on the dance floor as they are in the library,” a recent grad reports. “Expect to stretch your mind during the day, then blitz it away on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights.” An “astounding percentage” – nearly three-quarters - of the student body goes Greek here, and “fraternity parties usually range from cocktail social affairs to full-on keg stands in the country.” Another student chimes in, “one of my most recent and loving memories was when half of the senior class went nude rope swinging together into the Maury.” We guess W&L students know how to get less polite after all. A final student says “at W&L, people go out on average 3-5 nights a week. And they go out hard. If you're awake at 2am on a Tuesday, you are probably drunk eating your Domino's pizza, wondering how drinking all those gin buckets earlier that night will affect your history quiz tomorrow at 11am. At W&L, if you want to do something at night that doesn't involve drinking, it probably won't involve other people.”
