Question Mark: Lawrence Bubble

Have you noticed the Lawrence bubble, and do you think it is a problematic mindset in the outside world?

I have noticed the “Lawrence bubble.” This concept is not unique to us. Students at Princeton, my last campus, referred to it as the “Orange Bubble.” In some ways I think this phenomena represents the strength of the Lawrence experience. We want our community to provide a full intellectual and social immersion for every Lawrentian. I am also pleased that many students, as well as faculty and staff, balance a strong commitment to the campus community with deep connections to the Fox Cities. In addition, our community is enriched by efforts from student groups and faculty to invite guests from the larger world to speak to engage us in the issues that face the globe today.
