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.

When new Laurentians arrive on campus in late August every year, the first event each incoming class attends together is Matriculation. Our president, some of our deans, and our Thelomathesian Society president provide some words of welcome.
I remember the last tight squeeze my blubbering parents left me with, knowing that their final little bird was leaving the nest. I retreated to my new, unfamiliar dorm bed unsure of what I was supposed to do next.
As I look around my room I wonder how on Earth I’m going to be able to pack up all my stuff after graduation. I’ve starting making a mental list of things that I might be able to leave behind (so far, all that’s on the list is this one lamp…maybe).
As soon as you open the doors to our spectacular Brewer Bookstore you may wonder, "Am I actually in a college bookstore?" Do not panic! Your eyes, ears, nose and brain altogether will be confused.
As the “G word” (graduation) approaches, I have been spending a fair amount of time reflecting on how much I don’t want my St. Lawrence experience to end. It is hard to believe that four years ago, I was greatly anticipating my acceptance from my dream art school.
Even though St. Lawrence is in a rural area, there are still many people who love to shop - me being one of them! Looking at Canton, one would think you would have to travel far away to find a good shop, but that’s not true at all. The Canton area has some great gems.
In an effort to explore this fabulous place that I’ve been lucky enough to call home for the past four years, I decided to combine my loves for breakfast food and adventure.
