Career Services provides more than advice on resumes and cover letters, which is why 95 percent of our most recent graduating class had a job or was enrolled in graduate school a year after Commencement. Career Services empowers students and graduates to discover their passion, explore their career options, develop their personal career plan and reach their goals.

When was St. Lawrence founded? What are the school colors? How many students attend St. Lawrence? No matter your question, this is where you’ll most likely find your answer – and some other interesting tidbits you never knew before.

Fast Facts

No one takes greater pride in St. Lawrence than our 32,500 alumni. They are successful in all disciplines all around the globe, are always willing to help students and other alumni with internships, networking and other career opportunities, and often have great Laurentian stories to share.


The world’s most pressing challenges are increasingly complex and global, and knowledge of other cultures and perspectives is vital for those seeking to tackle them. That’s why more than 50 percent of our students take part in at least one of our 21 international programs on six continents or five U.S. off-campus programs.

Off-Campus Study

The Strategic Map is a vision for the coming decade to help guide us as we build on our tradition of innovation to deepen and multiply the kinds of critical connections that make the liberal arts so transformative.

Strategic Map

Green is an unofficial St. Lawrence color because environmental sustainability is more than a core value – it’s our way of life. Learn how our students live a greener lifestyle and about all we’re doing to make sure this campus and community are embracing more sustainable ways of living.


Meet professors, coaches and students. Sit in on classes. Attend a performance or sports contest. Walk through our state-of-the-art science, arts and athletics facilities. Interviews and tours can be scheduled year-round – give us the chance to make a visit tailored just for you.
