YMCA student memberships

Welcome – or welcome back – to Lawrence. For many years, the partnership between Lawrence University and the Appleton YMCA has provided access to the Y facilities to Lawrence University students at no charge.  The Y has given notice that starting this academic year, they need to make a change to the terms of  our agreement, and it is expected that these changes will be finalized over the next few weeks and at the latest November 1st.  While the details of the ongoing relationship are ironed out, the Y has agreed to continue providing complimentary memberships to students as in the past, with some expanded facility usage benefits.  You can pick up an application for Y membership from the Wellness Center then take it to the Y for processing and to get your membership card.

Wellness Services is looking for student interviewers

Counseling is available at Lawrence through the Wellness Services department to help with a wide range of concerns. Services are offered through individual sessions with a trained, professional counselor in addition to group and outreach offerings to campus. Currently our department is seeking to hire an additional mental health counselor to assist in providing these services. We value your input and, as such, would like to compile a group of volunteers from the current LU student community to help with the interview process. These interviews are planned to take place between late August and early September of 2020. If you are interested in working with a group of fellow Lawrentians to interview potential candidates for the counseling position, please contact Erin Buenzli at for additional information.

Wellness Center opening for recreation

You will be able to reserve a space and time by calling the wellness center at 920-832-6836 or by emailing The building will only be open for current students and employees at this time and the pool and locker rooms will be closed.

All Athletic facilities (Alexander Gym and all outdoor venues) will remain closed until July 1st, where at the point the decision on whether or not to open will be re-evaluated.
