The FYP experience gives first year students an advantage like nowhere else. Not only do you get to live and take a unique class with a variety of amazing people, but you also have the opportunity to build lasting relationships and a personal support system. Not only are the members of my FYP my best friends, but we are always there for one another, whether it be cheering for each other at sporting events, helping each other with coursework, or simply getting food together at the North Star Cafe.
The daughter of two educators, academics have always played a significant role in my life. However, I have always loved being involved in athletics and student government, playing multiple sports in high school and serving on several executive boards. What makes St. Lawrence such a perfect fit for me was that it allows me to do both, so I can focus on academics, but also participate in many other opportunities, both on and off campus.
