Before your Reunion, let your classmates know more about who you have become since graduation.  Create or update your profile in the alumni directory today!


Reunion is a time to celebrate the impact of our alumni on the world. Nominate yourself or a classmate for an alumni award. Nominations are due by September 1.

Support your Reunion Class

During each Reunion, your classmates who volunteer to plan and organize your reunion set a goal to pay it forward to current Lawrentians so that they can experience the same Lawrence difference you felt.

Please consider making an annual or monthly gift to support your classmate’s goal to pay it forward. All gifts/pledges count toward your class gift totals, which will be shared during Reunion Convocation.
