A free period is something that is hard to come by at the beginning of one’s time at Lawrenceville, but once a student gets it, they never knew how productive and necessary a 45-55 minute block during the day can be.
One of my favorite times of the school year are the moments before Club Night. It’s a bit of a calm before the storm, but in a good sense. Slowly, the club leaders start to flow into the Field House, with signs, flags, laptops and candy, and soon enough the tables come out and set-up begins. Once all the posters are up and the students start to file in, then Club Night swings into full action.
During the last few weeks of Freshmen year, I found myself in a lot of conversations wondering what life in the Crescent would be like. I was going to miss the little “freshmen bubble” that I had felt so comfortable in for the past year.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
