An essay by Amanda M. Drefus '03, of Malone, NY, won third place in a contest sponsored by the Denmark International Study (DIS) program. Drefus participated in the program in the fall of 2002.

Each semester, the program holds an essay contest, inviting participants to submit essays about their experience studying in Denmark. The best essays are published on the organization's Web site.

Drefus, a psychology and biology major at St. Lawrence, won for her essay titled "My Hygge Impressions in a Typical Day's Commute." Hygge is a Danish term, which is said to be hard to translate, but is usually equated with "cozy" in English.
