Describe your school in one sentence.Lawrence University is a tremendous place to grow academically, socially, and emotionally as a person, and I would not trade my experience there for anything.What do you wish you had known before you came to this school?I wish I could go back and tell my high school self to relax and that everything would work out. I had a lot of anxiety about meeting new people and proving myself academically. If I would not have been so anxious and nervous my freshman year, I would have realized I do not need to stay up all night studying, which I’m sure the stress of that year cut at least five years off my lifespan. There are more efficient ways of learning the material, which you learn by trial and error.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?There are a few dud professors here or there and it’s easy to get assigned them as advisors or take classes with them early on - in some departments, it’s hard to avoid. But Lawrence has some real gems - if you can get around the other guys, which can take awhile, you can find some pretty amazing teachers.What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?The non-competitive learning environment. What I wanted most out of a school was a place where everybody wanted to learn, to study, to do well in school, but also wanted to cooperate - somewhere where people didn’t want to do well at the expense of others. And I’ve found it at Lawrence. It truly is a place of learning and scholarship without the cut-throat feel typical of some more prestigious institutions.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?I believe the worst thing about Lawrence (although it’s hard to think of anything negative about Lawrence) is that it feels as though there are certain majors that do more work than others. For example, it feels as though the science majors put in many, many hours studying, writing papers and doing research compared to the conservatory students.What’s the most frustrating thing about your school?The most frustrating thing about Lawrence is that it is so academically challenging, even in your freshman and sophomore years. While your friends at other colleges/universities will be taking “easier” courses, you’ll be pushing yourself in your courses. This can easily get frustrating as you’ll feel as though you are doing more work than them, and that getting a high gpa will be much more difficult.

What kind of person shouldn’t attend this school?A person who isn’t self-motivated, or people who just want to blend in with the crowd shouldn’t attend Lawrence.What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?How small the classes are.

Describe your school in one sentence.Lawrence University is one thing “The Lawrence Difference” (their motto) and I couldn’t agree more.,If you could change something about your school, what would you change?Sometimes the cut-throat competition is a little bit much. I would like to make it a little more relaxed.
