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.

As I reflect on my four years at St. Lawrence, I have a hard time conceptualizing what my college experience would be like if chance hadn’t brought me here.
My friend Peter and I jumped on our bikes on Saturday, April 29, and began our 10-mile ride to Potsdam, N.Y. for the People’s Climate March.
The summer before showing up at SLU it seems that the forms are endless! Housing surveys, medical forms, blah blah blah... the list goes on.
2,189. A rather daunting number when it represents the number of miles between Maine to Georgia.
Four years ago, I reflected about my experiences during my first year on campus. I was reminiscing on the experiences I had with my First-Year Program and the benefits of going to a small liberal arts school in Canton, N.Y. These feelings still hold true.
Here at St. Lawrence, we encourage you to be yourself. We do not promise that St. Lawrence will make you the person you want to be, nor do we promise that you will “find yourself” here.
With Finals Week here, our hours in ODY are stacking up as well! I’ve compiled the top five fun ways to take a break from the books and enjoy the last week on campus. So climb down from atop a study tree house and try out some of these fun study break ideas!
Stage lights that are too hot and make you look like a ghost. Countless hours of practice and memorization. Not having enough hours in a day to finish your work before rehearsal. These all sound like things someone would hate, but these are some of my favorite things about putting on a show.
