I poked my head outside my office just as our lunch hosts were preparing to take a gaggle (I think that’s the term) of prospective students over to the Warch Campus Center for lunch. As is the usual custom, our students introduce themselves and where they’re from. (This particular group included Lawrentians from Milwaukee, Madison, the Twin Cities, Orange County, and Cameroon.) They then ask the prospective students clustered around our visitor lobby (pictured below) to introduce themselves and where they’re from.
Today’s visitors for lunch (note: this doesn’t include the other 25 people who visited at other times today):
Sacramento, California (2 students)
Highland Park, Illinois
St. Paul, Minnesota
That’s right: 12,000 miles’ worth of traveling right here to Appleton, Wisconsin. (And we’re thrilled they’re here on such a nice day.)
