Admitted Student Days 2016
April 10-11 | April 24-25

Do you want to experience a “normal” day at Lawrence? Want to talk with students and professors about your and their interests? Would you like to meet your charming and enigmatic admissions counselor? Check out one of our Admitted Student Days, which include programs specially designed to give admitted students (like yourself) the best of what Lawrence has to offer.

Immerse yourself in our world for a day; visit real classes that are in session, attend informational sessions on academic disciplines and degree programs, talk with a professor in an area of interest, and most importantly, let Lawrentians – students, faculty, and staff – help you decide if this is the place for you.

Students must already be admitted to Lawrence to register for and attend Admitted Student Days.
