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’s nothing quite like getting together with a group of friends and whipping up a delicious meal. Taking a few hours away from schoolwork to chop some veggies, slice some meat and mix cookie dough to create a spectacular dinner is certainly a worthwhile experience. But the icing on the cake is that this food gets to go back to the Canton community. This grand show of preparing, cooking and serving a meal in town is what the Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) is all about. read more
