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.

A common question I am asked from prospective students and families is, “What made you choose St. Lawrence?” A fair question, especially after learning I grew up in central Ohio and make the full-day drive to campus several times a semester. read more

Of all the exciting things that happened on my first day at St. Lawrence, I remember one thing in particular: the trash cans. I walked into Whitman Hall, found my door, punched in the code, and entered the room. read more
