Alumni Admissions Interviews
Interviews are an important piece of the admissions process. With your help, we can have meaningful conversations with more applicants and have a better understanding of who is well-matched for a Lawrence experience. It's about making personal connections, learning about the students beyond the pages of their applications, and bringing the LU experience to life for them.
You get to select as few or as many prospective students as you have time. The interviews take place at a location that is mutually convenient for you and the student in your local area.
What alumni and students are saying about the interview program
"It's been a rewarding and fun experience. I am consistently impressed by the applicants, and I've enjoyed sharing my own Lawrence experience, from applying to articulating how my experience at LU influenced my success after college." -Sandy Murti '95
"Following my interview with an alumni volunteer, I felt reassured that if I were to attend, I knew it would be a place where I would be able to grow academically and personally."
-Evan Stroud '20
