As 2017 draws to a close and winter settles over Lexington and the Washington and Lee campus, our imaginations are lured back to summer break and all the exciting and educational experiences that occurred for our students.

When summer classes ended, dozens of students continued their education with research projects on campus and beyond, while others worked at internships in their fields of interest. They traveled to China, Vietnam, Rwanda, South Korea, Greece, England, Hollywood and Capitol Hill, among many other places. They studied Chinese folk singing, hydroelectric power, and historical artifacts surrounding a turn-of-the-century murder. They reported big stories through print and broadcast journalism, opened a store in Cameroon, built a STEM center for children in Mexico, and shadowed doctors in Thailand and Ecuador.

In the new year, we invite you to take a look back at all the spectacular places they visited, the inspirational people they met, and the challenging experiences that will prepare them for careers after graduation.
