"My time on campus opened many doors for what turned out to be a very successful career. Lausanne offers students opportunities that many schools do not. I was more than happy to take advantage of those."
Joan Dutcher Jeanrenaud ’73
"One of my favorite things about Lausanne was the proud and time-honored traditions that we celebrated each year. Traditions at Lausanne enhanced my academic experience and had me searching for those same kinds of connections in my life post-Lausanne."

"My years at Lausanne played a fundamental role in my academic success at the Naval Academy. I was a member of the full diploma IB program at Lausanne, which challenged my time management skills early. I learned how to balance taking these rigorous courses, while also participating in multiple sports on campus. The teachers at Lausanne always challenged me to take myself to the next level and that served me well throughout my college years."
