Continuing Education

There is much to be learned during your transition to college that cannot be fully appreciated during orientation. Like doctors, lawyers, and several other professions with ongoing educational requirements; we expect FYs to participate in a few opportunities during fall term, which is consistent with the liberal arts ideal of life-long learning. Our holistic development focuses on a growth mindset with an emphasis on wellness and inclusion and learning outcomes that include:

  • A sense of belonging at Washington and Lee.
  • An understanding of the connection between Washington and Lee's educational mission and your own personal mission. 
  • Strategies for managing time and priorities.
  • Knowledge of and a willingness to use academic and co-curricular resources and opportunities.
  • The ability to articulate your own personal and professional goals, as well as define potential pathways toward achieving those goals.

Please keep an eye out for an email early fall term detailing a few required sessions. All FYs are also strongly encouraged to review the content for FYE 100: General Success that covers a variety of issues and skill building important to the student experience at W&L.
