A plethora of Milwaukee-Downer College alumnae will be on campus this weekend to celebrate the sesquicentennial reunion of their alma mater. Events will take place at the former home of Milwaukee-Downer in southern Wisconsin as well as Lawrence University in Appleton and on the Fox River. Alumnae on campus will have the opportunity to meet current Lawrence students at an informal forum, visit members of the Lawrence crew team and attend lectures by current faculty members. As well, Wriston Art Center is currently featuring paintings by Emily Groom, the founder of the Milwaukee-Downer College Art Department. Milwaukee-Downer is one of three institutions that merged in 1964 to create Lawrence University as an institution. Elements of the Milwaukee-Downer traditions continue on campus with the Teakwood Room at Downer hosting special events and many generous endowed funds that enhance academic life at Lawrence.
