Bon Appetit needs a ballpark count by Tuesday, May 30 at 8am.  RSVP to Lynn Van Zeeland at ext. 6506 or lynn.vanzeeland@lawrence.edu.  We hope you can join us to celebrate another great recruitment year.

Thank you for all you do,
Ken Anselment
Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid

PS: We hope to put together another one of those nifty “by the numbers” sheets, so please send Lynn any fun facts that represent your area (e.g., number of calls the Help Desk answered; how many bottles of Sriracha Sauce have been downed in Andrew Commons, etc.).

Admissions Tours for Candidates

As the Admissions office continues to receive more and more visits from prospective students, and given the limitations of our student tour guiding staff, we are no longer able to offer personalized tours to every candidate visiting Lawrence on a job interview. Rather, we would like to invite departments to schedule their candidates on one of our regularly scheduled campus tours, which can be done by e-mailing Kathy Hogan. Our tour schedule is below for reference.

We will continue to schedule personalized tours for senior staff candidates only (President, Provost, etc.), which can also be scheduled through Kathy.

For questions, please contact Jen England at x6840.

Thank you for your continued support!

LUX: New name, slightly new program for admitted students

On Thursday night, Feb. 23 and Friday, Feb. 24, we will welcome dozens of applied and accepted students to Lawrence for our first admitted student open house of the year. We have renamed the program LUX, where we will be shining a light on the Lawrence University experience. (We trust families will not confuse this with our library friends’ search tool of the same name.)

This February program is an addition to our programming this year. We will still offer our two programs in April (9–10 and 23–24). For students who applied and were admitted through one of our Early Action rounds, we are offering this program to capitalize on peak interest at the right time, rather than making them wait till April for “the good stuff.”

For more about the program, please visit the LUX page.

Note to faculty and coaches: In previous open houses, we have encouraged your attendance at lunch to meet and mingle with families. We have changed up the programming, inviting local alumni to mix and mingle at lunch, so you need not feel obliged to attend lunch. (We will not turn you away, however, if you do choose to attend.)

Prospective student open house Oct. 10

Lawrence is hosting the first of three fall open houses for prospective students on Monday, Oct. 10. Thank you to all of the faculty, staff and students who are participating.

If you see guests on campus, please say hello and smile. If someone looks lost, please offer to help.

Additionally, if you are driving to campus that day and you are able to park on a side street or north of College Avenue, our guests will be grateful to have an easier time finding parking.

Many thanks for making Lawrence a warm and welcoming community!
