The St. Lawrence Blog

Who is St. Lawrence University? We are a group of people with countless adventures and even more stories. The St. Lawrence Blog gives our students, faculty and staff the chance to tell their tales, in their own words and in their own way. Sharing these anecdotes in one place gives our community the chance to show how creative, daring and passionate we are about what we do. Alone, these stories are powerful; together they define St. Lawrence.

Coming from Baltimore, Maryland, I can always look forward to a 10-hour drive back to St. Lawrence after the winter and summer breaks. Although I am not from as far away as several of the students on our campus, I am still far away from my family. But I have found that during this semi-annual exodus, regardless of which direction I am heading, I always manage to find my way home. read more

There are a lot of things I love about St. Lawrence. I could write about so many different aspects of this school that have made SLU a second home for me over the past three years, but one thing that stands out is my love of eating food on this campus (because I love eating food in general). read more
