3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: It's a small town. If your like outdoor activities (hiking, fishing, etc.) it is a good location. Not to far from other universities.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Lexington is nice but small.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: W&L hate VMI people and VMI people hate W&L. The townies are very redneck and there are only 2 good bars in town to drink away your sorrows

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Not in a good location, but it's near good places.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Lexington is a small town. If you are an senior you are allowed to have your car so that gives you a lot more freedom to explore. If you are younger you are limited to restaurants and other attractions that are within walking distance.
