Congratulations Lawrence University Graduates
Lawrence University, founded in 1847, is a community of 1,500 intellectually curious students. We have been offering lodging to the Lawrence community since 1994. After meeting numerous families and students, we know first hand that this campus definitely has friendly and multi-interest students. We are proud to have served them with their lodging needs through the years.We are sad and happy at this graduation time. We will miss these students and their families. We are happy for their graduation accomplishments. However, even with our mixed emotions, we can look forward to the students returning as alumni so we can host them once again.
Graduation 2014 festivities begin on Friday, June 13 with a Commencement Concert at 8:00 p.m. in Memorial Chapel. The Lawrence University Graduation Band will perform on the Main Hall Green from noon - 1:30 on Saturday during their picnic event. Finally, Commencement Exercises are held on the Main Hall Green under the tent from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Lawrence is an undergraduate institution that is a deliberately small residential university. Students can be educated in the areas of the liberal arts, sciences and their nationally recognized conservatory of music program.
Our city is definitely given cultural appeal by the many events being held here. Lawrence University is proudly profiled in “Colleges That Change Lives”. The Conservatory of Music ranks among the best in America among small language arts universities. Go to Wriston Art Center to view their art holdings comprising more than 3,000 objects in a variety of media.
