The Washington Literary Society and Debating Union or known more colloquially as The Wash, is a literature and debating society at UVA. Described lovingly by its members as "a drinking society with a debating problem". Wash meetings take place in Jefferson Hall on the West Range Thursday nights from 8:00pm to whenever people stop giving floor lits. Like Voyeuristic Intention, the Wash is an organization that is not officially associated with Brown College, but has historically contained significant amounts of Brownies and Brownie ex-pats. This has created contention within the society and with subsequent years, less and less Brownies have become members of the Wash.
