CHESTERTOWN, Md. - On a warm, sunny day, Washington College is a delightful feast for the eyes. On campus, the tree-lined paths leading to refined brick buildings are graced by delicate petals in the spring and blazing leaves in the fall. Off campus, charming shops lace Chestertown's quaint downtown. A short walk from the college campus, where the downtown meets the Chester River, stands the Truslow Boathouse, headquarters of the crew and sailing teams. A waterfront pavilion provides a tranquil retreat for students - when the structure is not resounding with the cheers of fans rooting on their watersports teams.
