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.

The fresh rays of a springtime sun were shining on the April day that I visited St. Lawrence University for an Admitted Students Open House during my senior year of high school. During this visit, I would go on to taste the full experience that a student here could expect.
Every day at five o’clock, a student bell ringer plays the bells of Gunnison Memorial Chapel. From all across campus you can hear bells chiming, playing everything from the alma mater, to a “Happy Birthday” request, to something that sounds suspiciously like the Flintstones theme song.
When St. Lawrence asks me to participate, my motto is to say yes as often as possible. I think very deeply about the commitment and the impact of what I can offer. I don’t know how to do anything half baked – it’s just not in my DNA.

At our Fall Concert this year, students grooved to the great music and good vibes of GROUPLOVE and The Rubens.
Many students here will agree that being surrounded by the Adirondacks is an advantage many other universities do not have.
In 1982, members of the student-run Outing Club devised the event that they dubbed “46er Day.” Now, 31 years later, the tradition has a new title, “Peak Weekend”, yet remains an essential student ritual.
If you had asked me in high school if I would join a sorority, I would have looked at you like you were insane. But here I am, a senior in college, loving the fact that I have been running recruitment for each of the sororities on campus as the Pan-Hellenic Recruitment Chair at St. Lawrence this semester.
The deadline has come and gone and students are now playing the game everyone dreads the most: the waiting game. September 10th was the application deadline for students interested in going abroad in spring 2014.
When we recently asked our alumni, students, faculty and friends what they would add to a St. Lawrence bucket list, more than 100 responded with everything from local food recommendations to beautiful North Country scenic spots, clubs to take part in and traditions to hold on to.
