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.

With the Adirondack State Park being a mere 18 miles from campus, it’s no wonder that so many St. Lawrence students get a kick out of venturing to the park and frolicking in the woods. read more

When people ask me why I picked St. Lawrence University, I look them dead in the eye, smile, and don’t miss a beat.  “I came for the chocolate milk and stayed for the people.” read more
