Commons Living Room
President John W. Elrod's vision for the Commons was to serve as the "living room" for Washington and Lee University. The Elrod Commons as a whole serves as the center of student life and activity. It is the central location for all University constituencies to gather and feel at home. But the Living Room is a special place in the Commons where students come together to eat, study, chat, (and sometimes nap). Many activities and gatherings are held in the Living Room - everything from the annual Lunar New Year Celebrations, the Open Airwaves open mic night, to fundraisers and dancing.
