“The concept of light—truth, knowledge, progress—has guided Lawrence and Milwaukee-Downer Colleges since our beginnings. Each year we set out to create a learning environment for 1,500 undergraduates that prepares them to lead—to Be the Light!”
“Brilliant scholars, gifted artists, selfless teachers—the faculty of Lawrence University are simply unparalleled in their dedication to their students and their disciplines.”
“Support from donors makes it possible for me to attend Lawrence, and I think about that every day.”
“We have been hard at work imagining and creating a conservatory that will best prepare today’s aspiring musicians for our rapidly changing world. Now we are ready to take our vision and dreams to the next level. The Be the Light! Campaign will do just that.”
“This is liberal arts at its best, with athletics being the sweatiest of them all. We are moving in the right direction ... and are now ready to take even more significant steps forward.”
“It was really the financial support that made Lawrence a possibility for me. Because I’m here, I don’t have to choose between science and music—I can do both.”
