Advice to Prospective Lawrentians: Be yourself! When you’re thinking about spending 4 years somewhere, it’s important that you are comfortable and can see yourself living, learning, and thriving there. Talk to as many people as possible so you can learn as much as you can; current students, alumni, admissions staff, etc.
