Washington Post Features W&L Honor System

Nick Anderson, higher education writer for the Washington Post, visited the Washington and Lee campus in December to observe the University’s unproctored and self-scheduled exams and to write more generally about the University’s Honor System.

The result of his visit was a piece in the Post on Dec. 12, “Relying on trust lowers stress at Washington and Lee.” The Associated Press distributed the story to newspapers and websites around the country during December.

In addition, Anderson wrote a post about the visit on his blog, “College Inc.” That entry, “Washington and Lee’s honor system the real deal,” included comments from senior Steele Burrow, who’s the president of the Executive Committee, as well as President Kenneth P. Ruscio, Interim Provost Robert Strong and sophomore Margaret McLintock.

The Post article and blog was accompanied by photographs by freelancer Stephanie Gross, which composed an online slide show on the Post’s website.
