Alumni Letter Writing to Prospective Students:

We are partnering with the Office of Admissions to recruit incoming freshmen to attend Lewis and we could use alumni help.  We have nearly 2,500 students who have recently applied to Lewis and have been accepted, but have not yet taken the final step to enroll. In order to encourage these students to commit to attending Lewis, a few years ago we started an alumni letter writing program.  Here’s where alumni come in - we are in need of alumni to write letters that reflect the impact that the University had on their personal and professional lives. We will then send those letters to those prospective students in hopes that they will become Flyers!

Celebration of Scholarship Judge:

Each year Lewis University hosts a symposium to celebrate the research, scholarly work and creative endeavors of students and faculty. The Lewis University Celebration of Scholarship, is scheduled for Thursday, April 16th, 2020. Following a keynote address at 11:00am, both poster sessions and concurrent (presentation) sessions will be held spotlighting the scholarship of students and faculty from all Colleges across the University. We are writing to invite you to take part in the Celebration of Scholarship by serving as a poster session judge.  

 As a poster session judge, you will be assigned several posters to visit.  Students will talk to you about their projects including background, relevant methods or research process and the overall project findings/conclusions.  A scoring sheet will help aid you in evaluating the students’ projects.  You do not need to be an expert in the field.  We try to ensure that each poster is judged by a combination of both faculty experts and lay judges.
