Describe the students at your school.

While Washington and Lee is stereotypically "white/preppy" the administrations office is working on diversifying the student body. Most students wear comfortable clothes to class, jeans and a jcrew t, khaki shorts and a polo or t-shirt. Most students are from the south-east or texas, however, i was surprised by the large number of students from new york and surrounding states. Students are highly aware and active in politics. We just held our "Mock Convention"- a tradition that takes place each election year. We predict (correctly) the presidential nominee for the out of house party.

What are the academics like at your school?

Professors know my name and make a point of saying hi to me if they see me on campus or in town. I think that Washigton and Lee is geared toward creating a well rounded graduate... the requirements are created so that every student receives an education in mathematics, schieces, history, literature, economics, writting, art etc. Class participation is common and expected. Class sizes are small and create an environment that welcomes participation.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Greek life is a big part of life on campus here, we have five sororities and are getting a new one next year, also we have something like fifteen fraternities, and Washington and Lee is the founding school of KA. Dorm rooms are never locked and everyone feels comfortable that nothing will be stolen. An event that happens every year is Fancy Dress, a dance that everyone in the school (including faculty) is invited to... it is a fun way to come together as a community. The big party nights are monday, wednesday, friday, and saturday. EVERYONE is welcome at all parties and it is perfectly acceptable to stay in when you are tired or have a paper or test... we work hard and party hard.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Washington and Lee can be a great place if you can connect with the right group of friends, which a fraternity/sorority can usually help with. The social scene is a little skewed and most interactions between girls and guys occur at parties where alcohol is always present. People take their schoolwork very seriously and I work much harder than my friends at state schools do, but its not untollerable. The work hard play hard cliche really applies to W and L. Teachers are great and there are tuns of oppurtunity to get involved outside of classes with clubs/orginizations. I really love the fact W and L is in the middle of the blue ridge mountains and some of the prettiest scenery in the USA is 5 minutes from campus where I can fish/bike/hike.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

The drinking, diversity, and greek stereotypyes are widely accurate.

What are the academics like at your school?

There is a good mix of people who are extremely job oriented and pursue competitive internships during the summer and people who are are at schools to educate themselves for their own personal gain and pleasure.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

They drink abusively. Washington and Lee is very undiverse. They are very priveledged and live in a bubble. Everyone goes greek
