Last Chance: 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, your 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.
