Wednesday, January 12, we’re celebrating Founders Day at Lawrence University – breaking out the Lawrence apparel, taking a commemorative photo and inviting all students, faculty and staff to the grand opening of the newly renovated Buchanan Kiewit Wellness Center!

You may not be here on campus for the party, but we invite you to mark this special occasion in your own way:

  • Wear LU apparel to work, grab your LU coffee mug and let your co-workers, family and friends know you’re proud of Lawrence University.
  • Take a photo of yourself celebrating LU and email it to as part of the “Where in the World is LU?” photo contest. The deadline for photo submissions is Founders Day! We’ll post the photos on Lawrence’s Facebook page and LU Facebook fans will select a winner. (Prizes will be awarded for the 10 favorite pics.)
  • Make your LU photo (or another LU icon) your Facebook profile photo on January 12th!
