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.

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!
