    My experience at Lawrence Technological University has been one of the best! They have such a diverse campus, friends folks, lovely professors and even great food! It's so beautiful to walk the campus and see nothing but nature and hear nothing but peace. I would definetly recommend Ltu for anyone with a passion for engineering because their program is so amazing!

    LTU is more than just a university. I knew I made the right decision coming to Lawrence Tech when everyone around me wanted the same things. We have smaller class sizes, more hands-on experience, and better connection with our faculty. The one-on-one attention is great for learning. Also theory and practice are huge here. I love it!
    Love the small school feel, but definitely not too small! My professors have been great and our curriculum is very engaging. I feel prepared to enter my field once I graduate. I love having small class sizes, where professors can answer questions individually and have time to help each student if necessary. The upperclassmen dorms at LTU are apartment style, which is really nice. You get your own full kitchen and laundry room.
