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.

Sitting in the car with my mother and grandmother, I am in disbelief at how long this drive is taking. I have been sitting in the back of my mother’s car for over five hours and I still have at least two more hours to go. read more
