Events

Nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, Southern Virginia students have extraordinary access to a myriad of opportunities. Lexington, a historically-rich colonial town, stands only six miles away and has several excellent art galleries, many of which are frequented by students and professors alike. New York City, Philadelphia, Richmond, and Washington D.C. are within driving distance.
