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.

The fresh rays of a springtime sun were shining on the April day that I visited St. Lawrence University for an Admitted Students Open House during my senior year of high school. During this visit, I would go on to taste the full experience that a student here could expect.
Every day at five o’clock, a student bell ringer plays the bells of Gunnison Memorial Chapel. From all across campus you can hear bells chiming, playing everything from the alma mater, to a “Happy Birthday” request, to something that sounds suspiciously like the Flintstones theme song.
When St. Lawrence asks me to participate, my motto is to say yes as often as possible. I think very deeply about the commitment and the impact of what I can offer. I don’t know how to do anything half baked – it’s just not in my DNA.
St. Lawrence is an institution where traditions are very much still alive in our day-to-day lives, so we obviously had to do something for Movember: men’s health awareness month! The result: “The Mustachio Bashio” (a.k.a. The Mustache Ride).
During my first semester here at St. Lawrence, I was completely overwhelmed when I visited the Student Club and Organization Fair. There were so many clubs and organizations that had tables set up with club members all eager to talk about why their club was the best.
I first heard of St. Lawrence when I was 14 years old, on a three-week whitewater trip on the Rapid River located on the New Hampshire-Maine border.
Last semester, I studied abroad in Vienna, Austria as part of a St. Lawrence Program. While I was excited to experience another culture, taste different types of food and travel, I was anxious about the language barrier.
Growing up in Nepal, I have wonderful memories of celebrating Diwali with lots of colourful lights (almost like Christmas), good food, singing and dancing.
What is there to do at St. Lawrence? We have a student organization that helps bring numerous activities to campus each year.
St. Lawrence's Greek organizations all come together this time of year to help children from the local community celebrate Halloween with plenty of treats.
Our athletic facilities are for much more than student-athletes, working out and lunch at Time Out Cafe! Here are 10 ways to get everything out of them.
If you have been thinking it’s awfully dark in the morning, you are correct. Due to the wisdom of the United States Congress, we won’t switch back to Standard Time until Sunday morning (11/3) at 2 a.m.
As a Vermonter I grew up in the woods and around people who fished and hunted, but it wasn't until I got to St. Lawrence that I got into fishing.
