If you are looking for ongoing opportunities for personal enrichment and intellectual growth, you’ll find them here.  Lawrence’s alumni-focused experiences encompass everything from Björklunden seminars, webinars, international travel, and much more.

At Lawrence, our professors challenge students to think--and live--beyond their comfort zones, and they continue to provide opportunities for Lawrentians to grow, even after graduation.  Alumni regularly choose to participate in experiences that spark their sense of wanderlust, like this recent trip to Ghana coordinated by Professor Claudena Skran.

If you're looking for experiences closer to home, Björklunden seminars continue to promote liberal arts thinking in an environment that has given countless students and guests the chance to root into a more natural environment while letting their thoughts grow in myriad ways.

Plus, after over a year of curating online content designed specifically for Lawrentians during the COVID-19 pandemic, we've built a library of talks that are sure to inspire you.  With these resources, college is always in session.
