Milwaukee-Downer Alumnae

Milwaukee-Downer alumna Betty Barrett '55Milwaukee-Downer College had small classes that allowed a close relationship with teachers who cared about their students. We share that now with Lawrence. We had memorable and quirky traditions, some of which have transferred to Lawrence. Our class color traditions, such as Regatta, fostered close personal relationships. Reunions at Lawrence offer opportunities to keep those friendships. I support Lawrence to honor my connection with Downer. Hearing directly from the students who receive financial help from my gift, which is related to service learning, is a special payback.”
