St.Olaf vs. Lawrence VS. HWS..advice PLEASE

<p>I'm interested in history/government/polisci and wanna go to grad school after college.
please post anything you know about these schools,thanks :]</p>

<p>P.S. Lawrence is the one in Appleton,WI</p>

<p>anyone please~</p>

<p>Son is graduating with degree in Government, has had an excellent education at LU. He is headed to a big 10 grad school. They have wonderful professors who are in touch with their students. It is a friendly campus. I don't know anything about St. Olaf but I am sure it is wonderful as well. If you are making a choice, you probably have a gut feeling between the two and you just have to make a decision. I am sure you can't go wrong with either. My best.</p>

<p>P.S. Lawrence International is a big group on campus. Good place to start! :)</p>

<p>thanks a lot :)</p>

<p>Here is the link for internationals if you haven't looked at it....</p>

<p>Lawrence</a> International</p>

<p>wow that photo is in my offer package!!!</p>

<p>I live near St Olaf but don't know much about the poly sci department. The students are generally considered very friendly and "Minnesota Nice". St Olaf is about twice the size of Lawrence. The new science building is stunning! The food is considered to be in the top 5 for campus food in the country. The campus is very pretty.</p>

<p>The town isn't big (17,000) but it has 3 grocery stores, a Target (nice discount items- clothing, household items, sports bags, etc). About 20 minutes walk from campus (through a residential area) is the downtown with banks, coffee houses, giftshops, Indian food restaurant, 2 chinese restaurants, sandwich places, Mexican market and some clothing.</p>

<p>Every September the town has a big festival to celebrate thwarting a bank robbery in the 1800's by the legendary Jesse James. Lots of street food, art shows, classic cars, reenactments of the bank raid, fair rides, and a rodeo. Packs of freshmen from St Olaf join in as it is a good way to be doing something while getting to know each other.</p>

<p>The Minneapolis/St Paul airport is a 45 minute drive away. I don't know if the college arranges shuttles during the breaks. If they do not, there is a service in town that will pick you up on campus and take you to the airport in a van.</p>

<p>St. Olaf's sounds warm and adorable, and it's a good school, too.</p>
