Peer Counselors

The Peer Counseling Program is a team of student volunteers dedicated to helping other students experiencing emotional problems.  

Recognizing that students often feel most comfortable talking with friends about life issues, Peer Counselors receive extensive training on how to help other students. They are not therapists, but act as friends who are knowledgeable about the kinds of emotional issues affecting students and campus resources.

Students with Disabilities

Washington and Lee University is committed to providing equal access to educational opportunities to qualified students with physical or mental disabilities, in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

For more information, including those related to disability accommodations, please contact Lauren Kozak, Title IX Coordinator and Director of Disability Resources. Location: Elrod Commons 212, Telephone: (540) 458-4055.

Career Fellows

Career Fellows introduce W&L undergraduate students to Career and Professional Development (CPD) resources and partner with peers to craft professional documents and navigate the job and internship search.

They have availability to assist with resumes, cover letters, mock interviews, networking, and more. You may schedule an appointment in Handshake or email careers@wlu.edu with questions.
