Peer Counselors
The Peer Counseling Program is a team of student volunteers dedicated to helping other students experiencing emotional problems.

Recognizing that students often feel most comfortable talking with friends about life issues, Peer Counselors receive extensive training on how to help other students. They are not therapists, but act as friends who are knowledgeable about the kinds of emotional issues affecting students and campus resources.

Career Fellows
Career Fellows introduce W&L undergraduate students to Career and Professional Development (CPD) resources and partner with peers to craft professional documents and navigate the job and internship search.

They have availability to assist with resumes, cover letters, mock interviews, networking, and more. You may schedule an appointment in Handshake or email with questions.

Residence Life Staff

The residence life staff is comprised of sophomore, junior and senior student leaders.

Resident Advisers (RA's) work with First-Year students in the First-Year residence halls.

Residents should always feel free to call upon their RA/CA for advice and information.

Inclusion and Engagement

The Class of 1994 Office of Inclusion and Engagement supports the university's mission by striving to foster a culture in which all members of the community feel fully welcome and able to participate in everything Washington and Lee has to offer. Toward this end, OIE develops programs that explore, promote and celebrate the increasingly diverse backgrounds of our students, faculty and staff.
