I have been to many colleges. This one is a great one to see simply because it has a great history behind it.

Beautiful area for an afternoon walk and especially pleasant at dusk. Connects to Virginia Military Institute campus for more of a stroll. Can park at Lexington Visitors Center and walk a block or two to campus.

What a picturesque campus! Definitely worth a stop if you are passing through Lexington. The famous Colonnade has recently undergone an extensive renovation. The place is full of history, and you can follow the footsteps of George Washington, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson, and learn what they did while at the College. Visit Washington Hall in The Colonnade, and the Lee Chapel and Museum. The campus is particularly beautiful with autumn colors, and with the spring flowering trees.

I have been to the campus a number of times as I have two daughters attending. The campus and facilities are beautiful and it is worth walking around and viewing the picturesque campus and buildings.

Attended son's graduation ceremony for the class of 2017. The campus is beautiful. There are many historical aspects to the campus as well as neat downtown area.
