Lawrence is where I am at home! Beneficiary of Retirement Account
Karen Henderson Bachhuber '68
The Lawrence Campus is where I am at home. Long ago, on a bright September day, I arrived at Ormsby Hall with a good public school education and skills in math and music. It was the first time I laid eyes on the Lawrence campus. My family relocated that summer and my childhood home was left behind. At Lawrence I was secure and challenged by faculty and classmates to be curious, question, listen and act. The world changed for all of us in the 60s.
Now, I'm a retired Appleton Area School District math teacher and a widow. My four children and their families all live out of state. I live in an apartment along a clean Fox River, just a couple of blocks from Ormsby and the Lawrence campus. Fabulous music, lectures and international culture continue to challenge me and expand my world. The faculty is passionate, and the students are supported and fearlessly pursuing their interests.
Without a needs based financial aid package, I could not have come or stayed at Lawrence. I have chosen to give back by making an annual donation and joining Legacy Circle by naming Lawrence University as the beneficiary of an IRA account. I hope our collective giving will help meet the financial needs of future students. It made all the difference to me and my family.

Dr. Irving Auld and Dorothy
Roher Auld Scholarship
"Many students take for granted what a university has to offer. However, I am thankful every single day for the opportunity to attend this prestigious school. At Lawrence, you have the ability to engage in Socratic debates about the world we live in at dinner, play recreational or NCAA sports, and talk one on one with brilliant professors. At Lawrence, you don't just 'learn' a subject, you are immersed in it. You dive into the liberal arts and these professors show you the beauty in it all, and how everything is tied together. I am a Biochemistry major with a soft spot for rocket science, philosophy, and evolution. Lawrence is my dream school, and it would have never been possible without the Dr. Irving Auld and Dorothy Roher Auld Scholarship. I am forever grateful for their generosity."
