Lawrence University—home to a world-class liberal arts college and a Conservatory of Music, both devoted exclusively to undergraduate education—believes that college should not be a one-size-fits-all experience. Lawrence offers one of the lowest student to faculty ratios in the country at 9:1 with an average class size of just 15 students. Lawrence teaches an extraordinary number of individualized courses—honors projects, tutorials, studio lessons—with one student working with the guidance of one professor. Of the more than 2,000 courses Lawrence teaches each year, nearly two-thirds have a total enrollment of one. Within six months after graduation, 73% of students are employed, 22% are in graduate school, and 4% are traveling, in the military, or pursuing service work. That’s the power of engaged learning.
