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.

Even though St. Lawrence is in a rural area, there are still many people who love to shop - me being one of them! Looking at Canton, one would think you would have to travel far away to find a good shop, but that’s not true at all. The Canton area has some great gems. read more

I got my first pair of L.L. Bean Boots during my freshman year at St. Lawrence. Back home, you only owned them if you worked on a farm or down by the lake. But here, I found them to be a fashion statement: Bean Boots in different colors, Bean Boots in varying heights, Bean Boots with fur even. read more
