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.

The first time (and only time) I visited St. Lawrence, I fell in love. Not only with the atmosphere of campus and the community but also the opportunities that St. Lawrence has to offer. One of the things I was most excited about on my visit day at St.
