Great Sunday Brunch

Quick and easy if you're near the campus. Sunday brunch is really good with a lot of good choices and very reasonably priced.

I attended this college in the 70's; I appreciated the devoted faculty, stimulating courses, an emphasis on love of learning, and exceptional learning experiences. My choice to attend this college affected my life in so many positive ways.

This small private college with a focus on music is near our daughter & son in laws home. Our grand daughters have had the advantage of great music lessons from students at Lawrence. We enjoyed the sounds of outside music from campus during our recent visit.

Approaching a school like Lawrence with... More

We attended the Admitted Students' Day event and truly enjoyed it. We didn't have time to listen to the orchestra or a concert but plan to next time!
