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.

Laurentians love stories. In 2017, we shared more than 90 of them here on the St. Lawrence Blog, a space that gives students (and sometimes faculty, staff members and alumni) a chance to share their St.
Ever since early high school, I was enamored with the idea of starting down a career path of my own. This interest sparked through an internship at the Urban Outfitters Headquarters in Men’s Buying.
I don’t often find myself pondering questions of existentialism during my car rides back to school. Anxious to get back to my friends and schoolwork that await me in the North Country; these five-hour drives usually consist of loud music and a whole bunch of mindlessness.
SLU Homecoming, held in late October, offered a wide variety of events to choose including a campus-wide block party, three home athletic events, Phantom in the Park, and Shawna’s Walk for Wishes.
Each year at St. Lawrence, I have learned about places and things that have made my college experience unique. But there are also things that I found out about a little late - things that I wish I could have taken advantage of since my first semester on campus.
During my college search, I knew that I wanted to go to a school close to rivers, lakes, forests and mountains. Part of this was because I’m a conservation biology major and love getting outside during lab to study the ecosystems surrounding campus.
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.
