Alumni connect, engage, and pay it forward through Björklunden seminars
For students, Björklunden serves as a respite from the fast-paced academic and social world of the Lawrence campus. As alumni, you can return to find that same sense of peace--or you can choose to give back by attending, supporting, or even teaching a seminar. Your gifts make this space an enduring component of life at (and after) Lawrence.
