The St. Lawrence Blog

Who is St. Lawrence University? We are a group of people with countless adventures and even more stories. The St. Lawrence Blog gives our students, faculty and staff the chance to tell their tales, in their own words and in their own way. Sharing these anecdotes in one place gives our community the chance to show how creative, daring and passionate we are about what we do. Alone, these stories are powerful; together they define St. Lawrence.

In high school I got involved with my student government, mostly because it was something that my friends were also involved in (and also because it would get me out of homeroom).  Over the course of my four years, I ended up in higher positions and found I was really having an influence on my read more
There are plenty of awesome places to live on campus these days at SLU (apart from just the new dorm), but I wanted to talk about what I believe to be one of our more unique living options: our theme houses. This is not just because I live in one, but because so many of our students do. read more

In July, I had the pleasure of meeting with my advisor (and also head of the English department) Associate Professor of English Sarah Gates for one of my summer projects. read more

My role as a tour guide this summer may be my principal, and quite honestly my favorite, duty as an Admissions Intern, but giving campus tours is merely one of many tasks I have taken on over the past few months. read more
