Lawrence University

Appleton, WI, USA
4.10 Average Rating

Lawrence University is a liberal arts college and a conservatory of music located in Appleton, Wisconsin. On a bluff that overlooks the Fox River, the main campus is only one of three locations Lawrence University maintains. The 441-acre Bjorklunden campus is on the shores of Lake Michigan two hours northeast, while the London Centre is across the sea in Bloomsbury, making it a popular choice for study abroad. Lawrence offers 42 academic majors, as well as four areas of study through the Conservatory of Music: Performance, Education, Theory, and Composition, all of which require auditions for acceptance. All Lawrentians are enrolled in Freshman Studies, an introduction to liberal arts through great works of literature, art, and more that has been a cornerstone of the curriculum at Lawrence for 70 years.

What Students Are Saying

4.10 Average Rating
Lawrence is a wonderful, welcoming community with a variety of great programs and some extremely special professors. Winter can get pretty long at times, but there's lots to do if you can navigate the cold and get involved in activities. The best part is the spread of people: you get hugely talented musicians, athletes, and people majoring in everything from English to Biochem to Russian.
Stephanie from Seattle, WA
Lawrence University is a small, private liberal arts college and conservatory of music dedicated to individualized learning. This means that class sizes are small, professors are passionate and involved, resources for academic and financial help are endless, and students can pursue all of their interests while tailoring their own academic adventure. The student body is small and congenial, but interests and backgrounds are diverse and the environment is insanely welcoming.
