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.

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.
