Favorite Place at Lawrence:
Björklunden is one of my favorite places at Lawrence... and in Wisconsin. My family and I try to visit Björklunden at least twice a year. We love walking the trails along the shore, searching for interesting rocks along the beach, and having a bonfire overlooking Lake Michigan.
On campus, my favorite place is the plaza between Sampson House, the Wellness Center, and Memorial Hall. This is frequently a place where students and staff converge. It's also provides a scenic overlook of the Fox River. There is a clearing between Memorial Hall and the Wellness Center that provides a view of the SLUG garden and Lawe Street Trestle Trail. It’s also an ideal location to spot an eagle in the nest across the river.
