Nice, Quiet stroll on grounds
May 2021
My wife and I toured the grounds, as the chapel and museum were closed to visitors due to covid restrictions. Really liked the architecture and was very peaceful to tour.
We learned alot from the plaques and statues on the grounds.

Another beautiful campus!
Oct 2020
W&L is located right next to VMI so we visited both campuses in the same day. October is definitely a good time to go as both campuses were beautiful with their fall colors and stately buildings. Loved it!

Worth a visit.
Aug 2020
Even though our daughter graduated from here in 2012, we come to this beautiful small town nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains every chance we get, and always take the time to visit campus. It was a lovely summer afternoon today and walking the campus was the perfect way to spend it. It is everything a small university should be - easily walkable, tree lined, perfectly laid out, thoughtfully designed. And everyone wore a mask! Not typically something that would normally be important, but in these times you can’t be too careful and it was nice to see the students being mature and responsible.

Beautiful grounds

Beautiful place even though it was a painfully humid day! Impeccably white columns and good walkability.

Wonderful tour
Feb 2020
The family came for a college tour. You can tell this is a wonderful school. The students seem very happy here. The facilities are amazing. The town of Lexington is very small, but has a lot of character.

Lexington, WLU campus, the Lee Chapel, and Main Street
Nov 2019
Lexington is a beautiful little university town with so much history. Buildings all well maintained and the whole town is perfectly clean. If you love visiting university campuses and US history this is a place to visit. The Lee Chapel, the WLU campus, Main Street, and good restaurants the top four sites I recommend.

Campus worth exploring
Sep 2019 • Family
This is a beautiful campus to walk around and explore. We went in the building across the field from Lee Chapel and it was like a mini museum in there. Peak into the buildings during the day and see what you find!

Traveler's stable doors are always open

Why, you ask? So the spirit of this legendary horse is free to roam the lovely campus. What a whimsical version of history and a lovely counterpoint to the horrors of the Civil War.

Lovely Night Walk

Lovely night walk on the university grounds = always quiet and pleasant. Attractive pathway lighting. Can walk directly to VMI campus. Close to Sweet Things ice cream.
