Don't worry! We can help.
First, you'll want to click on the 2018 Bjorklunden Seminar Registration Form. It should open in your browser's window--make sure your pop-up blocker is disabled for Lawrence's website!
- Second, if you move your cursor near the top of the registration form, a black toolbar should appear with a few buttons. You want to click the one that looks like a down arrow pointing at a line. That tells your computer to download the document. You'll likely get a pop-up to 'save as'. Name it something easy to remember! Click save.
The next part is what causes the most trouble, so bear with us! You're going to want to go into your computer's documents--don't fill out the form that reappeared on your screen! You want to find the file you just saved. The easiest way is to type the file name into your computer's search bar. Double click on the document name, and the file should open. Note: you will need Adobe Acrobat in order to open this PDF.
Once the file is open, fill out the form!
When you've completed the form, click 'file' in the upper left hand corner to open the menu, then click 'save'.
Then, open your email account, attach the document, and send to Bailey!
The seminar fee includes everything; tuition, lodging, and meals. It does not include gratuity for student staff, required or recommended materials, Wednesday dinner, or transportation to and from Björklunden.
Gratuities for Bjorklunden's student staff are not included in the registration fee. We encourage participants to leave an amount that they think accurately reflects the level of service they received. Tips are split evenly among our staff of 10 Lawrence University students.
In short, no! There are many seminars that do not require any books or supplies. If you are a note-taker, we encourage you to bring a notebook and writing utensil--Bjorklunden no longer provides those items to participants. If an instructor does require (or recommend) a book, it will be listed in the seminar booklet, or it can be found by clicking the seminar title on our seminar page. And, some instructors will provide articles throughout the seminar week. For art-based seminars, the instructor may choose to purchase supplies to share with participants, and in that case, a materials fee will be applied to the registration fee.
No, Saturday ending seminars do not meet for class on Saturday morning. Seminars ending on Saturday usually have an event--like a concert or an art show--on Friday night. Participants can stay at Bjorklunden Friday night, and have breakfast on Saturday morning before departing.
Unfortunately, yes. There are a number of factors at play when determining whether or not to cancel a seminar, but if a decision is made to cancel, participants will be notified immediately. If participants have made a deposit or full payment, Bailey will work with them to process a refund, transfer the amount to another seminar, or turn it into a Boynton Society donation (which means early registration for next year!)
Absolutely! We understand life is busy--especially during the summer--so we have introduced a daily registration rate! Subject to availability, it is $90 per day, per person and includes seminar attendance for the day, as well as lunch.
