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.

I will never forget the first time I visited St. Lawrence. It was early fall, when the tall oak and pine trees rustle with the light breeze and the purple flowers billow beneath the chapel. Everyone fit in so well that the students became part of the landscape.
I can still remember sitting in my Spanish class the spring of my sophomore year, unable to focus because I was so excited to submit my application to spend a semester abroad in Spain.

Pumpkin pie ice cream, homemade cider, apple pie, autumn photo shoots, and hayrides makes for one of the most memorable fall days in the North Country. Fall in the NoCo is more than just the perfect opportunity for an Insta-worthy picture of campus.
The door to Richardson was locked no matter how much I jiggled the handle and knocked. Normally, I would have had no problem with this. I would have simply moved onto the next open study space with a sigh and a grin, but tonight was different.
Thelomathesian is Greek for “to want to learn”. I think that this perfectly describes my experience on the Executive Board of the Thelomathesian Society - better known as Thelmo - our student government.
Before coming to St. Lawrence, I never gave a single thought to where my food came from. Somehow, almost as if by magic, food would appear on my plate every night when I came home from school for dinner. When I graduated high school and moved onto college, the magic continued.
I’ve been in school since I was three years old, and I feel that 18 years of education is enough for now. I don’t plan on a career that will require graduate school, which makes these past few weeks my Last First Days of School.
Sometimes the thought of being a "real" adult scares me, until I remember what the Laurentian community has in store for me.
There are fewer things more nerve-racking than starting your first year of college. You're leaving home, you're living with someone that you don't know, and you're navigating around an unfamiliar campus, all while trying to juggle making new friends and going to classes.
