    I have a lot of friends here, and Lawrence is a very great place to be. The environment is awesome and lax, I don't feel pressured into anything, and I get to spend time with my friends even with working part time and going to school full time.

    The atmosphere of the college is that of learning and enjoyment. The campus has much to offer and more than I would be able to get involved with. My age does factor into part of that as I am much older than the usual student. All there is to do and learn from the campus makes it fun to be there and makes me proud to be a student here.

    The other musicology students are kind, interesting people who are always happy to give me feedback and assistance. The professors, as I already mentioned, have been dedicated and enthusiastic lecturers. The atmosphere of Lawrence as a whole is welcoming to students - perhaps to the exclusion of non-students. However, the general studentry is just as ill-mannered, unmotivated and occasionally drunken as anywhere. I have had a number of discouraging encounters with such students, which have taken something away from my enjoyment of my college experience, and, in one instance, made me afraid for my safety.
