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.

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.

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.

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.

Several students prepare food in a large industrial kitchen.

There’s nothing quite like getting together with a group of friends and whipping up a delicious meal. Taking a few hours away from schoolwork to chop some veggies, slice some meat and mix cookie dough to create a spectacular dinner is certainly a worthwhile experience. But the icing on the cake is that this food gets to go back to the Canton community. This grand show of preparing, cooking and serving a meal in town is what the Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) is all about.
