The Lawrence Difference

“The kindness everyone has towards each other on campus. I also admire the drive Lawrence students have to make the world a better place, whether that be on small scale on campus or a large scale across the state or country. People here do amazing things, and I always feel empowered and motivated to help change the world myself when I see what other students are doing.”


“Everyone wants you to succeed SO much. The professors care so, so much about you and will do whatever they can to help you do well in their classes and at Lawrence in general.”

“If you know, you know.”

“When Stanley asks how finals are going and wants a genuine answer, when Campus Safety tells you to get back safe and stay warm, when it’s snowing, when you see some con students practicing out on the Green when the weather is nice or when your professor brings snacks to class just because.”

“The fashion sense on campus.”

“Our strong sense of community and our ability to speak up and make real change within this community we have.”

“Having to do the Lawrence Look-Around before saying anything scandalous.”

“Nobody really knows.”
