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.

I took a deep breath and looked left, then right. This was a sight I hadn’t seen since December 2016. On one side, campus. The back of the library, the chapel steeple, the gray cobblestone entrance to Sykes, and the flagpole just outside it.
Last year, Admissions Ambassador Jeff Mogavero ’16 wrote a fantastic post about the Campus Kitchen at St. Lawrence University. For me, a senior at St. Lawrence, I am enjoying my fourth year with Campus Kitchens and am currently the president or our chapter!
Autumn is my favorite time of year and there is nothing more beautiful than St. Lawrence in the fall. The leaves turn all sorts of wonderful colors: reds, oranges, browns, and yellows! There are also great events on campus.
The Kenya study abroad semester is one of the oldest St. Lawrence abroad programs, as it just celebrated its 40th reunion this past summer. The compound where students stay was the first of any United States University in sub-Saharan Africa.
As a sophomore, I first heard about the Association for Campus Entertainment (ACE) when they advertised that Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, my favorite band, would be performing a 10th anniversary concert at St. Lawrence that winter.
In high school I got involved with my student government, mostly because it was something that my friends were also involved in (and also because it would get me out of homeroom). Over the course of my four years, I ended up in higher positions and found I was really having an influence on my
There are plenty of awesome places to live on campus these days at SLU (apart from just the new dorm), but I wanted to talk about what I believe to be one of our more unique living options: our theme houses. This is not just because I live in one, but because so many of our students do.
It's that time of the year again! In mid-September, more than 100 sophomores, juniors and seniors at St.
In July, I had the pleasure of meeting with my advisor (and also head of the English department) Associate Professor of English Sarah Gates for one of my summer projects.
My role as a tour guide this summer may be my principal, and quite honestly my favorite, duty as an Admissions Intern, but giving campus tours is merely one of many tasks I have taken on over the past few months.
Anytime the mention of summer plans came up in conversation, my uncertainty followed shortly after. I was so used to going back home to Zambia every summer; I nearly packed my suitcases several times, ready to temporarily disappear.
