Washington and Lee University

Lexington, VA
W&L is the ninth oldest institution of higher education in America, and we pride ourselves on the depth and breadth of our curriculum. W&L augments the liberal arts and sciences with offerings not commonly found in a small college, including engineering, a nationally accredited business school, and a highly regarded journalism program. Located in Lexington, Virginia, our idyllic Shenandoah Valley setting is among the things our students love most about W&L. The merit-based Johnson Scholarship Program and our no-loan need-based aid program ensure that W&L is affordable for all deserving students.
