'Cadaver Bridge'

Most everyone who visits Washington and Lee takes a stroll down its suspension footbridge. Spanning a creek and tennis courts, the bridge is 550 feet long, stretching towards Wilson Field. While it's known around campus as, 'Cadaver Bridge,' tour guides say it's rare they get all the way to the footbridge before forging the topic of the secret society. Parents and children alike usually have trouble bottling their curiosity about one of the strange symbols on campus. Many of Washington and Lee's secret societies leave calling cards or clues strewn about campus, but some are easier to decipher than others.
