Leaves of Lawrence
Happy Fall Ya'll, a few months never too late. Being born and raised in Florida, I saw pine cones as my only sign of solstice. So, being in Wisconsin in October was beautiful but cold . . .
During my campus tour, I learned that an alumni of Lawrence was an avid fan of Abraham Lincoln and after his passing donated the largest Lincoln collection to the Lawrence Library.
Around campus they featured student artwork made out of wood and trees.
Chapel on campus.
The Lawrence campus was beautiful and ornate.
At the top of this administrative building is a bell tower.
Beta Theta Pi
Sigma Phi Epsilon
Phi Kappa Tau

During my visit I took a tour of the History Museum at the Castle, better known as the Houdini Museum. The magician and escape artist was not born in the United States but has listed Appleton, WI as home on all official documents.
The Castle also had an exhibit on the history of paper, included is this paper making machine.
Lucky enough, during my campus tour I got to see a part of the Conservatory rehearse.
Lawrence University is home to a little over 1,500 students, slightly smaller than my high school. They had the best meal plan I have ever seen. Every day they featured the local grown vegetables and the distance they traveled from. I could go on and on with what makes Lawrence and the Zeta Epsilon chapter so special, I truly loved it. But if I had to share one more thing it's that their mascot was related to my high school mascot. . . Go Vikings!
