Sesquicentennial News:
What do Picasso, Calder, Yoruba carvings, and a 15th century Gothic panel of Saint Lawrence have in common? They're just a few of the amazing works of art in the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery's 7,000-piece collection. Highlights from the collection are on display in the Gallery through February 25, as part of the 150th anniversary celebration.

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.
