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.

If you had asked me in high school if I would join a sorority, I would have looked at you like you were insane. But here I am, a senior in college, loving the fact that I have been running recruitment for each of the sororities on campus as the Pan-Hellenic Recruitment Chair at St. Lawrence this semester.

The deadline has come and gone and students are now playing the game everyone dreads the most: the waiting game. September 10th was the application deadline for students interested in going abroad in spring 2014.
