Coming to campus on Alumni Weekend, May 1-3, 2014? Check out what is going on in the Stephan Archives as part of your visit!
In the Bunn Library
Lawrenceville Lux Mentis Lux Orbis
From the Lamp of Knowledge in our School Seal to the solar energy which fuels our core campus, fire continually influences life at Lawrenceville! Join your classmates in The Stephan Archives to explore the School’s historic relationship with this element and view never-before-seen artifacts. Lawrenceville Lux Mentis Lux Orbis is on display in the Archives Reading Room during regular library hours beginning on May 2, 2014.
Life in Old Lower
Due to popular demand, the Life in Old Lower exhibit, first displayed during Alumni Weekend 2011, will be on display again in the Bunn Library for Alumni Weekend 2014. The exhibit features a life-size reconstructed Old Lower cubicle, decorated as it would have been in 1965. Located in the Main Lobby of the Bunn Library. For more background on how the exhibit was designed and implemented, check out this Fall 2011 Lawrentian article on Old Lower.
School Presidents of the Major Reunion Years
Portraits of the School Presidents from the classes ending in 4s and 9s will be on display in the exhibit case located on the upper level of the Bunn Library.
