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.

Guest Policy & Registration Form

As we prepare for the launch of Fall Term, the LPPT has refined our guest policy to ensure the health and safety of our campus community. 

We will continue to prioritize virtual gathering.  Where this is not possible guests – anyone who is not currently enrolled, employed by, or contractually affiliated with Lawrence University or the Lawrence Community Music School – may be invited to campus.  All parties seeking to invite guests to campus will be required to complete the Guest Registration Form

All guests and gatherings (both indoor and outdoor) must comply with health and safety protocols established by the university.

Testing for faculty and staff update

What to do if you did not input your designation for working on-campus this fall term and thus did not receive a testing date/time:

There is still time for you to be tested. Please email coronainfo@lawrence.edu as soon as possible and we will let you know of the available times for testing.

Please note that testing is only for individuals who are NOT exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19. If you feel sick or are exhibiting any symptoms on the day of your test, do not come to campus for the test.

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 Erin.Buenzli@lawrence.edu for additional information.
