Study Abroad Experience: None… I didn’t want to leave campus!
Favorite Thing About SLU: The traditions! From the Candlelight Ceremony and Matriculation to Titus Weekend and Springfest, all the traditions are so unique and memorable. I love how the traditions connect Laurentians from all generations.
Advice for First-Year Students: Try anything and everything! Go on a hike during Peak Weekend, join an intramural sport, write an article for the Hill News, sign up for a dance class, sign up for Greenhouse dinners, go on a Habitat for Humanity spring break trip! There are so many opportunities at SLU for students to discover their interests and passions. It can be overwhelming with so many choices, but make a list and start checking it off!

Class Year: 2017
Hometown: Bremerhaven, Germany
Major/Minor: Economics, Estudios Hispánicos
Study Abroad Experience: Madrid, Spain and New York City
Favorite Thing about SLU: My favorite thing about St. Lawrence is the close-knit community and the life-long bonds that are formed here every day. Over the last three years, St. Lawrence has become my home away from home because of the many caring and lovely people I was able to meet.
Advice for First-Year Students: Take advantage of our 132 different clubs and organizations. Sign up for as many clubs and extra-curricular activities as possible. This will allow you to meet many of our amazing and dedicated Laurentians.

Maeve Walsh
Class Year: 2017
Hometown: Wethersfield, CT
Major/Minor: English Major and Communications Minor
Study Abroad Experience:London (Spring 2016)
Favorite Thing about SLU: The campus! SLU is such a close-knit community and that's one part our North-Country location, one part our beautiful campus. There's no other place I know where you can roll out of bed and step outside to lay on the quad with friends. Equally important is the Java Barn- always amazing shows!
Advice for First-Year Students: Take classes outside your comfort zone. You may never know how much you love public speaking until you take a public speaking class, so don't be afraid to try new things!
