Our 1,520 students come from nearly every state and more than 50 countries to enjoy the distinctive benefits of this engaged-and engaging-community. It's a close-knit, residential, 24/7 campus filled with smart and talented people pursuing an astonishing variety of academic and extracurricular interests. Lawrence students are comfortable being themselves-and quite comfortable letting others be themselves, too. Our picturesque, residential campus is nestled on the banks of the Fox River in Appleton, Wisconsin (pop. 72,000; metro pop. 250,000), an area recognized annually by national publications for its safety and high quality of life.
With about 12 percent of our students and 13 percent of our faculty coming from beyond the United States, Lawrence is one of the most internationally diverse liberal arts colleges in the country.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
