I am really interested in Washington and Lee, but am put off by the drinking. With my application, admission shouldn't be a problem, but my question is, will I be able to have a good time at W&L if I don't drink? I mean, I go to parties all the time and don't drink, but does anyone do that at W&L? Will I be able to go a good greek house, even though I'm dry?
(not one of those "balanced man" programs - I have a friend who is in one at UVa, and he hates it)?
Also, the size is discerning. Because of the small student body, are the sins of individuals the talk of the table at meals? Is gossip a problem?
