LU Insider

Lawrence University’s Celestial Histories

Associate Professor and Chair of Physics, Megan Pickett, and her student Avery Greene ’24 celebrate Lawrence’s connection to the Night Sky.  Pickett and Greene are compiling a written and oral history of Lawrentians “Celestial Histories” as part of their summer research.  They are looking for stories, traditions, and important moments from all Lawrentians related to personal encounters with the night sky.  Their work will lead to an archive and website that paints another portrait of who we are as a community.  To volunteer, use:

You can choose between a written survey or an interview.  Look for future LU community events in which we can all share the night sky through the coming term!
