Going the Extra Mile: Mentors come from every imaginable place. We often cite the lifelong influence of great faculty; via a Web survey, we asked students and alumni to tell us about staff who helped shape their education and their life’s direction. Plus, read President Sullivan's essay on his own academic and administrtaive mentors.

Sesquicentennial News:

Last call! We're still collecting your best wishes to SLU on its 150th birthday and your greetings to the people who'll celebrate our 200th birthday in 2056. Send your birthday wishes to St. Lawrence and future Laurentians through our Web link. As of June 30, the official celebration of the University's 150th anniversary will conclude. The Sesquicentennial Web site will remain active through the summer, and then will evolve into a new history and traditions Web site, using much of the great material we gathered and created over the year. Thank you to the many students, faculty, alumni, and staff who conceived of, participated in, or supported Sesquicentennial events. Special thanks to the University Communications team, all of whom were central to planning and programming throughout the year, and to the dedicated Sesquicentennial Committee.
