Faculty Profile: Lawrence Alexander

Meet Lawrence Alexander. Director of College Counseling, Lower Burroughs Dorm Head and a 3x Tough Mudder competitor. Learn more about his work in college counseling and residential life below.

College Counseling Background

I’ve been working in college counseling for 10 years. I began my work at the Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria in New York, where I was their founding Director of College Counseling. In 2013, I led 76 college-bound seniors in securing more than 2.1 million dollars in financial aid and no loans! During my career I’ve had students admitted to:

Barnard College

Bates College

Bowdoin College

Boston University

Brown University

Colby College

Cornell University

Johns Hopkins University

New York University

Princeton University

Colgate University

Tufts University


UC Berkeley

University of Chicago

I appreciate that White Mountain recognizes the need to develop students as independent learners. The inquiry-driven curriculum and culture of engagement help students develop the skills and habits that correlate with college acceptances and success.

Residential Life Experience

I started my career in Residential Life immediately after graduation. I spent the first four years of my career working as a Residence Director. I’ve realized that residence halls are just an extension of the classroom; learning doesn’t end just because class does. Serving as a dorm head at WMS allows me to support students where they live and cultivate community with the upperclassmen here.

Favorite thing about WMS

The community. The faculty, staff and students are among the kindest people I’ve ever met in my life.

Favorite place on campus

The gym

Fun Fact

I’ve entered and completed the  Tough Mudder Mud Run and Obstacle Course three times.
