There's No Place Like Home! Bequest

To me, Lawrence University has always felt like home. I felt it the first time I spent the night there as a prospective student, and I still feel it now when I visit. I meant to put an estate plan together long before now, and from the beginning, I knew that Lawrence would be included as a beneficiary. Lawrence introduced me to four of my best friends, allowed me to indulge my love of history with professors who loved it just as much as I did, and gave me the opportunity to travel the world when I was nothing but a small town, Midwestern girl who had never been anywhere. Most importantly, it prepared me to not only attend law school, but to succeed as an attorney, using the same skills I first developed through my liberal arts education.
I owe so much of what I have been able to achieve to the foundation I built at Lawrence, and that would not have been possible without the scholarship help I received from Lawrence. I consider it both my duty and honor to do what I can to help future generations of Lawrentians reach for their dreams, just as others did for me. I'm proud to be able to include Lawrence University in my estate plan.

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."
