Winterim


Winterim 2017Winterim is the centerpiece of Lawrence Academy's commitment to immersive education -- learning in the concrete and physical world of activity as a complement to learning in the vicarious and symbol-filled world of traditional classrooms. The 2018 catalog, listing this year's course offerings, is posted online (PDF at right). You will also find the 2018 Winterim Intro and Sign-up Forms here.

Note: Individual programs are subject to change.

The Winterim program is an opportunity to explore a broader range of subjects and skills than is otherwise possible in a regular classroom. In that spirit, student reporters assist the LA communications staff in covering their classmates' experiences, while gaining some knowledge of their own.

For a more historical perspective, check out the 2017, 2016, and 2015 Winterim Blogs (posted together below). You may also view 2014, 2013, the 2012 Winterim Photo Gallery, and the 2011 Winterim Blog.

Our hashtag on social media is #LAWinterim.

Don’t Judge a Restaurant by its Cover

Julians

by Maksim Tochilkin ‘19
 
After a snow storm on the fourth day of Winterim and consequently a day off for every on-campus program, the Winterim News Team was ready and excited to explore the gorgeous city of Providence on Friday, March 9, and check out the Providence College men's ice hockey team take on the University of Maine.

However, we all figured that this task would demand a good deal of energy and decided to fill up our tanks at Julian’s restaurant, wisely suggested by …

The Post

by Viraz Mahanti ‘19

On March 6th, I went to see the film The Post at O'Neil Cinemas, the newly-built theater in Acton.

I sat down, not knowing what to expect. Leaving the theater, I can happily say that I enjoyed the film, and that it left me thinking. It brought up issues of the time, which can be connected to issues we face today.

One wonders, when seeing the …

Try Tavern in the Square

 

Tavern in the Square

by Spencer Akers '18

Lawrence Academy's Winterim News Team had a chance to enjoy lunch at "Tavern in the Square" last Tuesday after seeing The Post -- at nearby O'Neil Cinema -- an exhilarating movie capturing a critical moment in history.

The restaurant is an upscale sports bar, but it's not a rowdy, particularly at lunch. The staff is quite organized for it being such a casual place. Well-dressed and attentive, when people are eating -- and servers are in between plates -- they are…
