Pretty campus and nice buildings of a very small school. Located in a mid-sized town. Not much going on at the school on a regular basis as it is so small. Not a real lot to take in, but worth strolling the campus and riverfront....More

Lawrence University is a wonderful small liberal arts college. They also have a conservatory of music where students earn a bachelor's degree in music, music performance, etc. The college offers many lectures and performances that are open to the public, and many events are free.

Beautiful campus. We just looked around and didn't actually go in any of the buildings because it was 4th of July weekend and nothing seemed to be open. We really enjoyed the well manicured campus and the gorgeous architecture.
