Gifts of Learning Bequest and Gift of Art
Carol L. Korda '71 and Bruce Dalgaard, Friend of Lawrence
I graduated in 1971 and majored in Economics. Since the Lawrence London program was just beginning in 1970, my classmate, Anne Hackett, and I, struck out on our own study abroad program at the University of Nottingham in England. This experience whetted my appetite for further travel which didn't occur until twenty-seven years later when I met my husband, Bruce. After graduation, I worked in investments and portfolio management at First Bank System which is now US Bank.
I have supported the Lawrence Fund for many years and have been a member of the Lawrence-Downer Legacy Circle since 2006. I also completed a four-year term on the Lawrence University Alumni Board and have served on its Community Engagement Committee and the Capital Campaign Committee.
My husband and I have included Lawrence in our wills and we have also designated Lawrence to receive a collection of Japanese woodblock prints which we have acquired since 1989, when we first started traveling to Asia.

"I am currently a senior double majoring in biochemistry and economics and minoring in Innovation & Entrepreneurship. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate the Theodore Diamandopoulos Memorial Scholarship, without it, my Lawrence experience would not be possible. I have enjoyed being a mentor in the CORE freshman mentorship program, playing and working for the Women's Basketball team, competing in Model United Nations, interning as a lab assistant at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, hosting a pilot STEM program for young unaccompanied refugees in Greece, and volunteering through KidsGive during a field trip to Sierra Leone. Thank you so much for supporting me in doing the things I dream to do."
