Lawrence University Admissions Counseling Staff

If you think doctors, musicians, and athletes are specialized, you should get to know some admissions counselors. No doubt you will in the coming months. Though Lawrence is a small institution, we have many different populations of applicants: applicants to the college, applicants to the conservatory, transfer students, and multicultural students, not to mention students from nearly every state and around 50 countries. Use the headings below to locate your admissions counselor, and please feel free to contact them at any time. When in doubt, you can always call the general office line at 800-227-0982 or email admissions@lawrence.edu, and we will put you in touch with your counselor.

Note: Until we build our nifty map of the United States where you can hover over your part of the country and magically reveal your counselor, we recommend you use your browser's page search feature (CTRL-F) to pop up a box where you can type in your home state, or your home county if you live in Wisconsin. (If you happen to be an international student, you can just click here to meet your contact.)

Request an Interview

We recognize that in-person interviews aren't always possible. Perhaps you won't be able to visit campus for several months, or maybe you'll miss interviewing with an admissions counselor in your area because of a test/game/concert/family-function. Whatever the reason, don't let it preclude you from learning more about Lawrence University and allowing us to learn more about you.
