It’s Lawrence University’s 164th birthday and we want you to help us celebrate!

Wednesday, January 12, we’re celebrating Founders Day at Lawrence University – breaking out the Lawrence apparel, taking a commemorative photo and inviting all students, faculty and staff to the grand opening of the newly renovated Buchanan Kiewit Wellness Center!

You may not be here on campus for the party, but we invite you to mark this special occasion in your own way:

  • Wear LU apparel to work, grab your LU coffee mug and let your co-workers, family and friends know you’re proud of Lawrence University.
  • Take a photo of yourself celebrating LU and email it to as part of the “Where in the World is LU?” photo contest . The deadline for photo submissions is Founders Day! We’ll post the photos on Lawrence’s Facebook page and LU Facebook fans will select a winner. (Prizes will be awarded for the 10 favorite pics.) Here are the official rules and photos that have been submitted so far.
  • Make your LU photo (or another LU icon) your Facebook profile photo on January 12th!

Not on Facebook? It’s a great way to connect with Lawrence, your friends, family and co-workers. Visit our Facebook page and click on
the green “sign up” button.

Happy Founders Day!
