Call it "Lawrence North," "The Estate," or even "That Amazing Unpronounceable Lodge on the Lake." Whatever you like, you get to call Björklunden "home."
Björklunden vid Sjon (Birch Forest by the Water), Lawrence University's campus in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin, is nestled in 425 wooded acres along more than a mile of Lake Michigan shoreline. (Baileys Harbor, just two hours north of Appleton, is in Door County, Wisconsin's bed-and-breakfast heaven.) Just a stone's throw from the shore sits a lodge complete with bedrooms (sleeping about 100), large and small group spaces, a massive locally-quarried fireplace, a recital hall, and a serene setting. And if you're into bread pudding—and other delicacies fantastically prepared by our chef and his staff—you'll find yourself getting to Björklunden early and often.
Students will spend at least one weekend during the year "up North" for language immersion weekends, field research, cross-country workouts, creative writing workshops, ensemble bonding time, and more.
