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.

It's Tuesday night. My stomach groans in anticipation as I make the trek across campus to Dana Dining Hall. My pace quickens as I get closer. Tonight is not just any normal dinner. It is the best night of the week. It is Pasta Sauté Night. read more
