      Björklunden (pronounced "Bee-york-LUN-den") is a 441-acre estate on the Lake Michigan shore that was bequeathed to Lawrence University in 1963 and where, since 1980, the university has offered a series of adult-education seminars.

      This magnificent, year-round facility also allows Lawrence University’s mission as an undergraduate liberal arts college and conservatory of music to extend to Björklunden through a popular series of weekend student-faculty seminars which have been running since 1996.

      Winifred Boynton captured the enduring spirit of Björklunden when she said of her beloved summer home: “Far removed from confusion and aggression, it offers a sanctuary for all.”
