    Your school tuition covers a lot more than just your classes since Lawrence uses part of your tuition to cover the costs for visits to the school nurse, counselors, and to make attending any event on campus free to the student.

    Lawrence University is not only a college, but it is a conservatory as well. Imagine students who want to possibly major in both Biology and Theater! At Lawrence, this is possible.

    Lawrence is expensive, but it's totally worth it. It's a great school, and professors really make an effort to make you get the most out of your experience and education here. Also, financial aid is very possible to get and if you feel like you need a little more help to afford it, just talk to admissions/financial aid office because they are usually able to help out and make it work.

    Prestigious but expensive. Getting your money's worth depends on which department you're in. The LU conservatory is widely celebrated, and the psychology , biology, and chemistry departments are strong. The only major that is an absolute waste at Lawrence is art - the program is tiny and terrible.

    As far as I can tell, most students go on to good jobs/internships after graduating.
