Student Clubs at Lawrenceville

There are more than 80 clubs and organizations at Lawrenceville specializing in a range of interests such as writing, acting, debating, music, art, history, religion, science, photography, woodworking, and scuba diving.

The largest single student enterprise is the Periwig Club, whose productions attract more than a third of Lawrenceville’s students. They flock to Periwig to participate as actors, set designers, painters, carpenters, electricians, production managers, directors, publicists, and business managers. 

Writing opportunities abound. Students publish a weekly school newspaper, The Lawrence. It has won many national awards over the years, including the prestigious Columbia Journalism Award. A staff of student editors works each week to produce the paper from articles and letters submitted by students and faculty on a wide range of topics. The newspaper is more than 100 years old and enjoys its long tradition of excellence.

The Lit, founded in 1895 by Owen Johnson, who wrote the famous “Lawrenceville Stories,” is published three times a year. Poetry, essays, artwork, and photography fill its pages. Students submit their works to the editors, who choose the best among them for publication.

The Model United Nations Club prepares debates as members of a foreign country for mock United Nations meetings. Members research the given countries’ political, economic, and foreign policy interests in preparation for the multinational meetings in which different schools represent different countries.
