Put a little LOVE in your heart
Lawrence’s Own Viola Ensemble (LOVE), either as one large ensemble or smaller groups of viola students, performs everything from 17th-century works to contemporary pieces both on and off campus. And that's in addition to other ensembles like orchestras, bands, and chamber groups.
From summer internships to summer research to study abroad, funding for experiential learning is available from the time Lawrence students come in as first-years until the time they walk across the stage at Commencement.
