During the week, students are encouraged to take campus tours, meet with admission counselors and get answers to financial aid and scholarship information questions. All students who register for Private College Week will be eligible for gift cards and t-shirt giveaways. For each campus a registered student visits and completes an evaluation form, they will receive an entry for a drawing to win one of two iPads that will be awarded.

“We welcome visits to campus 51 out of 52 weeks of the year,” said Ken Anselment, dean of admissions and financial aid at Lawrence. “Wisconsin Private College week is a particularly good opportunity for students to learn more about Lawrence while also seeing some of the state’s other private colleges.”
