W&L clinches fund-raising goal of $50 million for athletic facilities.
Nearly 700 alumni returned to campus to celebrate classes with graduation years ending in three and eight. This year's reunion classes collectively raised more than $1.5 million for the Annual Fund and committed a total of $5.2 million in current gifts and future pledges.
W&L will name its new indoor athletics and recreation facility for Duchossois '44 in recognition of his leadership support of the project.
The gift supports the education — both theoretical and practical — of budding journalists.
Washington and Lee University celebrated the classes of 1962 and 1957 during the Five-Star Festival November 2 – 4, 2017. In honor of its 55th reunion, the Class of 1962 met recipients of The Class of 1962 Faculty Fellows Fund, an endowment that the class established in 1987 during its 25th reunion.
