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.

It’s right before Thanksgiving break and at this point, you’re finally finding your stride here at St. Lawrence. I know you’re starting to feel like you know everything there is to know, and while it’s great that campus is beginning to feel like home, hang tight; we’ve got a lot to learn. read more
