Parents and Families

The Family Connection Newsletter

In January 2021, W&L introduced a new publication designed to communicate the latest news for parents and families. The monthly newsletter complements other university channels to help keep families informed about life on campus.

Parent Orientation

The Parent Orientation sessions provide family members with answers to questions they may have prior to departing campus.

Parents and Family Weekend

The weekend will combine informational and recreational activities, giving parents the opportunity to meet with members of the faculty, review campus life, and participate in social events.

Financial Resources

Easy access to information on Financial Resources that are of interest to parents.

Visiting Lexington

Campus is so much more than red bricks and white columns (though we have plenty of those too). Come visit campus and let us show you all the aspects of campus life that make our students call Washington and Lee home. Tell us a little bit more about yourself below so we can customize your visit options to ensure you get the most of out of your visit to Washington and Lee.

Support W&L

Honor Our Past, Build Our Future is the largest fundraising initiative in Washington and Lee's history with an announced goal of raising $500 million. Thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents and friends, the campaign has raised more than half of that total less than two years after the launch of its public phase.
