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.

Thanks for taking a break from your Facebook recommended BuzzFeed article to read this blogpost. Unlike those articles, I hope that this one can actually improve your chances of having a great Finals Week.

I’m going into my fourth year at St. Lawrence and if there was one thing that had to be on the top of my “Favorite Things About SLU” list, it would be the relationships I have built with my professors.

You might be wondering why a blog post would be about Mac and Cheese bites, a delicious and gooey food that many enjoy. It all starts with my visit to SLU the spring of my senior year of high school.

One of the many great things about St. Lawrence University is how eager people are to offer you opportunities to explore something new, whether it is trying a new class, studying abroad, or, in my case, being part of a club that allows you to make moves.

It’s 2:03 a.m. The pager shrieks at me as if to say “SHOWTIME!” Within a matter of seconds, my blood is pumping and I’m out of bed. I toss on my work shirt that says, “St. Lawrence University EMS.” Pager? Check. Radio? Check.

I have less than 30 days until my graduation, but who’s counting? There are many reasonable emotions a college senior will feel at this point of the year. Sadness over knowing you’ll have to leave the place you’ve called home for much of your last four years, and the friends you’ve made there.

During my tour of campus, on a dreary March day approximately four years ago, my tour guide brought me to the International Programs office and elaborated on the various study abroad programs offered through St. Lawrence.

On a humid August afternoon, just days before I was scheduled to move in for my freshman year at St. Lawrence, I noticed a small envelope from the University on my kitchen counter.
