Sesquicentennial News: Take Our Two Surveys Today!:
The May issue of St. Lawrence, the University's quarterly magazine, will have two feature articles that you, the readers, can help shape! We want to know your views on these two topics:

Alumni and students: We often and very appropriately recognize outstanding faculty mentors, but less often pause to honor those administrators and staff who also play an important role in your lives. Who are, or have been, the most influential non-faculty mentors?
Students, faculty, staff and alumni: What's the best of (almost) everything at St. Lawrence? This is an unscientific poll of your views on the the great courses, the best food, the wonderful places, and the honored traditions at St. Lawrence.
