Campus Visit Notes for Washington and Lee University
I was taken to a frat party where i watched one drunk guy punch a wall, another drunk guy put a pipe down his throat and chug beer while other people threw up. Also a huge population of the school smokes. It wasn't a fun party scene. It was completely centered around getting drunk. People didn't care about having a drink while talking and socializing. It was about going to a frat house "pregaming" then going to another frat house to get even more drunk. about 80% of the student body go greek and if you either dont drink or dont go greek, you are an outcast. I was given alcohol at the party i went to and after having some then setting it down, i was repeatedly made fun of. One girl told me how every weekend she gets so drunk she blacks out and walks around town in the middle of the night. theres a car that takes students from frat house to frat house while they are so drunk they cant function and its so out of control that a few weeks ago they pushed a girl in front of the bus and she broke her legs. It seemed that there were no other social options besides the crazy frat parties every weekend. It doesnt surprise me that the sexual abuse percentage is so high. All the students do at W&L is get drunk. There is no intellectual conversation or aspect involved. The girls i was with were figuring out their next semester schedule and the only thing they cared about was taking the really easy classes.
