Alumni Weekend 2020 Cancellation

Lawrenceville has been closely monitoring the current global health crisis as we determine the best course of action for the benefit of our students and their families, our faculty and staff, and our alumni. On March 13, the decision was made to cancel all School-sponsored events through June 1, 2020, including Alumni Weekend. We are making plans to celebrate the Classes of the 0s and 5s together with the 1s and 6s on campus next spring, May 2021, and will share additional information as it becomes available. If you have already registered for Alumni Weekend 2020, we will be refunding your fees in full. We look forward to welcoming you next year.
