Lawrence is filled with a lot of really smart students taught by really smart professors.
In that regard, we are not too different from most of the nation's top liberal arts colleges.
But there is a key difference. We have heard variations on this from all sorts of visitors to our campus, from world-class scholars, musicians, and artists, to political leaders and entrepreneurs who have been on their fair share of college campuses around the country:
Lawrence students are as bright as any of the brightest students you'll find at the usual big names in higher education, but they don't waste their energy trying to outsmart each other or their professors. They spend their energy getting even smarter... together.
Our professors choose to teach at Lawrence because they know they'll get to work with bright young women and men who are not as interested in getting all the right answers as they are in learning how to ask the right questions.
Take a look at our areas of study.
