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.

There are a few things I would never have said about myself before coming to St. Lawrence. A self-proclaimed city girl, I would never have told you I like living in a small town where I can see stars when I walk home from the library at night. read more
