We enjoyed a brief stroll around the campus of this small university which was loaded with colorful trees. Don't miss the views of the Fox River from the campus.

Lawrence University is a wonderful small liberal arts college. They also have a conservatory of music where students earn a bachelor's degree in music, music performance, etc. The college offers many lectures and performances that are open to the public, and many events are free.

Beautiful campus. We just looked around and didn't actually go in any of the buildings because it was 4th of July weekend and nothing seemed to be open. We really enjoyed the well manicured campus and the gorgeous architecture.
