SLU Traditions and Fun Facts:
In 1933, major league baseball's New York Giants played St. Lawrence on what is now Weeks Field, winning 12-4 - not bad, since the Giants were to win the World Series that year. Why did they come to Canton? One of their star pitchers was Harold "Prince Hal" Schumacher '33, and the team came for his graduation.

If you were here in 2005-2006, you participated in St. Lawrence University's 150th anniversary celebration. We've maintained the Sesquicentennial Web site as our Tradition site, and it has features such as This Month in SLU History, Campus Traditions, Then & Now Photo galleries, and Fun Facts.

Blogging from campus:

It was so great to see them after almost three months, which I think that is the longest I have ever gone without seeing them...It was great to impress them with my knowledge of the city and my ability to get around by myself.
