At Lawrence, you’ll notice we speak of light often. Light, illumination, shining, brilliance. The concept comes from our motto: Light! 更多的光! Veritas est lux (Truth is light).

We think you have something great to offer the world—your truth, your light—and we want to help you find it and make it shine. 这是我们的重点. We are committed to challenging and illuminating experiences that give you the knowledge and tools to identify your truth and use it to impact the world.
