Our alumni share their gifts in meaningful ways. Discover some ways you can give back. 

In your everyday actions, you already serve as an exemplar of the Lawrentian spirit.  Think about how you demonstrate what Lawrence means to you when you...attend events, bring prospective students to visit campus, connect with current students in our community, stay in touch with professors, and so much more.  You are a part of our story—because there’s no LU without U.  We hope Lawrence continues to play a role in your personal narrative, however it unfolds. 

If you want to give back as a volunteer, you'll find a wide range of ways to do so.

Admitted Student Receptions

Host and/or attend an Admitted Student Reception in your area. For more information, email admissions@lawrence.edu.

Alumni Admissions Interviews

With your help, we can enhance the prospective student experience and support the Admissions Office in gathering more insight about each applicant. Interviews give us the opportunity to have a meaningful conversation with students and understand who is well-matched and ready to take advantage of the Lawrence experience. You get to select as few or as many prospective students as you'll have time to connect with and meet with them in your local area. To volunteer, email admissions@lawrence.edu.

Career Contact

Become a Career Contact if you have a passion for sharing your life and work experiences to assist current students and other alumni with career exploration and networking. No special training is required...just a desire to share your experiences with others interested in your career field, graduate school field of study, or geographic area. For more information, email careercenter@lawrence.edu.

Class Leadership Team

Keep your classmates connected.  Members of the Class Leadership Team serve as the principal communicators for the alumni they graduated with. The Class Leadership Team, launched in September 2016, encompasses Class Agents, Class Secretaries, Viking Gift Committee, Legacy Circle Gift Planning Chairs, and Reunion Committees.  With the Class Leadership Team portal as a user-friendly tool, you will have the opportunity to select tasks such as writing a fundraising letter, collecting and curating class notes, thanking classmates for their gift to Lawrence, thanking and promoting the Lawrence-Downer Legacy Circle, and encouraging attendance at events on campus or regionally.  Learn more by emailing Kevin LeBeau, Director of Annual Giving, at kevin.lebeau@lawrence.edu.

College Fairs

Lawrence University is invited to hundreds of college fairs each year, so we depend on our alumni to help cover college fairs across the country. We will provide you with all of the information you need (table banner, Admissions materials, FAQs, current facts & figures, etc.) to make sure you feel prepared to represent LU at a college fair in your area. To volunteer, email admissions@lawrence.edu.

Regional Clubs

Lawrentians are everywhere. Whether it's a social or networking event, a cultural event, or an opportunity to do some community service together, we'd love to connect you with other Lawrentians in your area. Regional Clubs are making a comeback and we'd love to know if you're interested in getting involved! Regional Clubs will be popping up in the Fox Cities, Milwaukee, Madison, the Twin Cities, D.C., and Chicago. If you live in another area and there is interest, there is an opportunity to start a club there as well! Learn more about the clubs here.

Reunion Committee

Help plan your Reunion!  During the year leading up to your Reunion, Committees for each Reunion encourage participation in a class gift to the Lawrence Fund and attendance at reunion.  They also plan specific class-related events for Reunion Weekend. For more information or to serve on your reunion committee, email alumni@lawrence.edu.
