We ended our day with a visit to the campus of Southern Virginia University in Buena Vista. This institution is called by the some "BYU of Virginia" because fo the LDS influence within the faculty and the student body. It was originally a woman's college, helping its students qualify for teaching positions in the public and private schools system.
We had an enjoyable time looking about the interior of this old main building on the campus and talking with some of the faculty.
This statue in front depicts the putting on of the "Whole Armor of God."
