Freshman Visit

A Freshman Visit is a 15-20 minute initial appointment with a career advisor intended simply to help us get to know who you are and what general interests you may have so that we can best share resources and opportunities with you throughout your time at Lawrence. The visits can take place any time during your first year at Lawrence, however, we encourage all students who haven't visited Career Services to schedule initial visits. It does not matter whether you know what you want to talk about or do in the future; we will figure those things out together!

To schedule a visit, please stop by or call Career Services.

Alice G. Chapman Hall, 2nd floor
