I just stayed at the motel except for one trip to see the WWII submarine on display approximately 50 miles from where we were staying.

We walked the LU campus and did not find anything detrimental. The small campus is a five minute walk from the older original shopping district of the town. Ideal for the student who does not want to feel isolated in an urban or sprawling college setting. We spent time in the student union having a coffee and felt very comfortable... More

Beautiful campus with trees and nice architecture. VERY friendly and I liked the lay out of the campus. Right on the edge of downtown Appleton, so students can easily walk everywhere. Wish I had known about it!

What a pretty campus! It's fall right now, and this campus looks like the classic university campus you'd see in a movie. Good enough just for a walk-through.

Exceptional professors who are experts in their subject areas AND who want to, and are able to teach. Small class sizes, beautiful campus. The student center has fantastic food. There is always something going on, on campus. Wish I were young again - I'd love to attend college here.

Loved finding out that the general public can walk in on any day during the school year and eat in the Andrews Commons, several choices available -- all reasonable, much of it organic and locally sourced.

Lawrence Academy of Music does a fantastic job on the summer camp program. The kids have a blast and it is music from morning until bedtime. The grounds are clean, safe, and the lessons are wonderful. Staff is friendly and engaging. The music the kids produce in one week is incredible. Recommend to everyone with a kid who loves music.
