My FYP was "War and Society".  Apart from learning the methods of becoming a successful college student, I really enjoyed getting to work with my professors and learn about a topic that I was passionate about. I was able to not only connect with my fellow classmates in class but the conversations would continue on in our dorm rooms. Not only academically but also as an individual I feel like I have grown so much in this short period of time at St. Lawrence.

I am a first year student from Kabul, Afghanistan. I have been traveling since I was born either by force or by choice and certainly coming to St. Lawrence was one of my dreams come true. I have come far and I am planning on going further with many opportunities that St. Lawrence has to offer. I have found St. Lawrence to be a second home away from home.
