At its meeting on Monday, Jan. 11, the W&L faculty passed the following resolution in response to the recent violence in the nation's capital:
Resolved: We cannot stay silent in the face of the events that took place at our nation's capital on January 6, 2021. The actions of the rioters there, instigated by President Trump, struck at the very heart of our nation's democratic processes. The faculty of Washington and Lee University condemns in the strongest manner possible the mob conduct that occurred on January 6. We also condemn in the strongest manner possible the systemic racism that animated those riots, and that was demonstrated in the deeply differentiated law enforcement responses to last week's events at the Capitol and last summer's events at Lafayette Square. These abhorrent occurrences underscore once again that the only way to ensure the health of our nation's institutions is to eliminate the scourge of racism and be unwavering in our commitment to equal justice for all.

Below is a brief list of some additional programming designed to help students connect in these challenging times.
Washington and Lee's Outing Club (OC) isn't letting winter weather keep them inside. From campfires with friends, hikes around the beautiful trails of back-campus, and runs at the majestic Natural Bridge State Park, January kicked off a whole semester's worth of programming. The Outing Club invites the entire university to participate with an OC membership. Registration for trips is free, but required. Trips will be announced every few days, so make sure to check back often for updated information.
Student Activities is offering a campus-wide scavenger hunt throughout winter term--all you need to do is find a partner and DM the Student Activities Instagram account for the list of places, people and things to be on the lookout for as winter term unfolds. While you're there, please refer to the list of other social media accounts to follow to stay connected with what various departments and organizations are offering on campus.
Keep an eye on the University calendar for upcoming events on campus, follow us @wlustudentactivities to stay informed on upcoming offerings from student organizations, and don't forget to check your email every Sunday evening for our office's weekly newsletter.
If you have suggestions or ideas for student programming, please share them with your class dean or Kelsey Goodwin.
