What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are many pros and cons to Lawrence. One is class size. We have about 1500 students in the entire school, and that offers a lot. There is an extremely tight-knit community here and everybody knows everybody. However, sometimes that can be exhausting for some people. Another thing is that everyone on campus is involved in everything, especially the conservatory students. It is easy to overextend yourself and be part of the "Lawrence Busy".

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a pretty small school so you will recognize faces. The community surrounding the campus can be kind of hectic because they see Lawrence students as pretentious and rich. That is not the case for students on campus. The classes are great because you can ask questions during class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that making the choice to come to Lawrence University was probably one of the best decisions I've made. I really enjoy the smaller class setting which allows me to get to know my peers as well as my professor. I came from a large high school where I felt that I was just a number but Lawrence has made me feel welcome and has given me a more personalized education. I have met some of the most amazing people here. Eveyrone is so friendly and it's super easy to make close friends. The dorms are very big on getting to know one another and building a community, so there are always opportunities to get to know other residents. If you are looking for a small university, Lawrence University should be at the top of your list.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Snotty professors who are not particularly interested in student success. Campus is filled with mental health problems, social isolation, and 18 year olds trying to sound smarter than each other. Student-faculty interaction is branded as being the 'Lawrence Difference' and is one of the major selling points for this $50,000/year hellhole, but in reality professors are selective in the students they help. Don't waste your money, time, or sanity in dealing with this school and go out and get a proper education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school so much! it's different from most colleges which makes it special also. It truly is like a family away from your family. The faculty and staff truly care about you and make themselves available for you so much. There is definitely an adjustment period but once the adjustment period is out of the way I think students really begin to love the place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lawrence has offered me the perfect environment to learn and grow as I work my way into the world. Even as a part of two fairly small departments, Linguistics and Classics, I have learned a lot and felt supported by my professors and my fellow students alike. Most of us seem to share a contagious enthusiasm for learning and exploring, whether in the classroom or at a concert or just sitting around in the dining hall and chatting. Throughout campus, students are known for their "busy culture"; they are determined to find more to get involved in or accomplish. However, both students and faculty members do their best to ensure that this busy-ness doesn't reach unhealthy levels, and I have felt a campus-wide camaraderie and concern for the whole community's well-being.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lawrence University is a small liberal arts college in the small town of Appleton. I really enjoy it because I get more individual attention from the professors and they really want to succeed. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer, join sports, and participate in a variety of clubs. Lawrence also has a music conservatory, so the creative and intellectual mind is supported here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is way more welcoming than I thoughtit was going to be when I arrived. The profesors are all really engaging with the students, and it helps that the class sizes are small. There are so many opportunities that are open to you for being a Lawrentian, so I know this is a great university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My daughter made an early acceptance decision to Lawrence University. The school is 75% White with the remaining students coming from International Study Abroad kids and those on scholarship. The sports program is robust and expanding. As a prospective parent, I would send my daughter and our money to this institution.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! It's my second home. I'm on winter break right now, and I actually miss everyone there. I miss being there, being able to walk everywhere. I never thought I'd like to be so close to everything, since I've always longed to be away from everything, but now, back home, I feel so far away, and I miss the closeness, the knowing that everyone around you is in the same boat as you. Everyone's so supportive of each other and willing to help each other. My residence hall, Kohler, is like one big family. I feel so loved. We all are more connected; the students and professors are more connected than we were in earlier years. We all live together, especially since there's no off-campus housing, really. It brings our community even closer, keeps us unified. It's what makes Lawrence so welcoming.
