Parent Ambassadors

Parent Ambassadors are integral to the success of LU. By sharing your time and talents in one, or many ways, you can help make a lasting impact on the Lawrence community. You can help us make a better Lawrence by assisting in Admissions recruitment, helping prepare current students for life after Lawrence, and keeping parents connected. Below are a few ways you can get involved. Sign up now to become a Parent Ambassador.

Admitted Student Receptions

Host and/or attend an Admitted Student Reception in your area.

Time commitment per event: approx. 2-5 hours
When: Mid-April
Students apply to several colleges each year. As it becomes time for them to make a decision, our goal is to offer an opportunity for prospective students to connect with each other and members of the Lawrence community. We appreciate being able to offer the alumni prospective and welcome you to join us to answer last minute questions and help them feel confident in their decision. These events are elegantly casual and vary based on location and size. 

Career Development/Networking

Become a career contact

Time commitment per student: approx. 1-2 hours
When: Upon student request
We appreciate your willingness to share your life and work experiences to assist current students and other alumni with career exploration and networking. No special training is required—just a willingness to share your experiences with others interested in your career field, graduate school field of study, or geographic area.

College Fairs

Represent Lawrence at a college fair

Time commitment per fair: approx. 2-4 hours
When: Fall and Spring 

Lawrence University is invited to hundreds of college fairs each year (far more than our fantastic admissions staff could possibly attend), 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.

Summer Send-Off Picnic

Host/attend a summer send off picnic in your area

Time commitment per event: approx. 2-5 hours
When: August
Once students have committed to becoming a Lawrentian, we offer a casual get-together where new students and their parents can meet other Lawrentians (past, present, and future) in their area before they say goodbye to their hometown and hello to Appleton! These events vary based on location and size.
