Lawrence University, a liberal arts college and conservatory of music, has a long history of unique offerings. At the time of its founding in 1847, it was one of the first colleges in America to offer coeducational programs. Today it remains one of the top schools in the region for students who are looking to earn a degree in one of several in-demand fields or train in the musical arts. The main campus, located on the banks of the Fox River, offers the school's 1,500 students a number of attractive college housing choices. The city Appleton, the home of the campus, is an urban area with a number of entertainment and recreational options.
LU is home to one of the few conservatories in the region. About one-quarter of students at the school take music classes. Biology, Psychology and English are the next most popular programs. With a student to teacher ratio of just nine to one, class sizes at the school tend to be about as small as can be found. The freshmen retention rate is 88 percent, which indicates high levels of satisfaction.
The city of Appleton is a relatively small urban area, but it is densely packed. While most LU students choose to live in university housing, those who opt for an off campus apartment will find many options. The city straddles the Fox River, with most student apartments located on the north banks. However, students who choose to look in the south bank neighborhood will find themselves in close proximity to Lake Winnebego with its numerous parks and green spaces.
