This is my undergraduate alma mater and I hold a special place for it. Visiting regularly since my time there, Lexington and W&L bubble with history and innovations. The venerable Virginia Military Institute is next door and well worth a visit as well.

Beautiful college campus; worth visiting just for historic value. It is a peaceful and tranquil place for a walk. Plus, seeing the college kids is fun!

Stopped here on a recent visit to Lexington, Virginia. This beautiful small college is nestled in the town. It features Lee Chapel which is a beautiful church where Civil War General is buried along with other family members plus his horse traveler. Nice tour of the chapel is given by campus employees and volunteers. Heard this school is known for its business and Law programs. Beautiful grounds and nice to go for a walk here.

The final resting place of Robert E. Lee, who served as the president of the college following the Civil War. The school has a stellar academic reputation along with a beautiful campus. The retained old-school charm while keeping amenities modern.
