Teddy Geraghty

Teddy Geraghty
Class Year: 2018
Hometown: Norwich, VT
Major/Minor: Economics and Business in the Liberal Arts double major
Study Abroad Experience: New Zealand
Favorite Thing About SLU: All of the campus traditions that bring us together transcend our undergraduate experience, connecting Laurentians of all ages under a proud identity. From Peak weekend and Titus Mountain to the Max Ryder Band and live music at the Java barn every week, St. Lawrence has so many fun and unique traditions that make me proud to be a Saint.
Advice for First-Year Students: Get involved! With over 130 active clubs and organizations on campus, there is a mountain of opportunity to learn new skills, meet interesting people and step outside of your comfort zone. Don’t hesitate to sign up for a class that you don’t have experience with either; one talented professor that you connect with could be the deciding factor in what you chose to focus on during your four years here.

Major/Minor: Psychology and History double major
Study Abroad Experience: Coming soon to a country near you!
Favorite Thing about SLU: Students build such an active community. Whether it be taking a hike in the Adirondacks or catching a hockey game with friends, the options are endless. We might be pretty far up north, but we know how to stay busy and have fun!
Advice for Incoming First-Year Students: St. Lawrence will be the best four years of your life! When you enter 23 Romoda Drive, you’ll never look back. Make friendships that will last a lifetime, grab some coffee with a professor, and take a seat in an Adirondack chair and relax on a sunny day. Welcome home Saints!

Class Year: 2018
Hometown: Seoul, South Korea
Major/Minor: Business in the Liberal Arts and Performance and Communication Arts double major
Study Abroad Experience: London and New York City
Favorite Thing about SLU: I love how involved the students are! By joining clubs, participating in off-campus programs, and attending various on-campus events, I have been able to branch out and meet a lot of different people. This is also what ties our student body together to create SLU’s tight-knit community.
Advice for First-Year Students: Be open-minded and comfortable with trying new things. There are so many opportunities at St. Lawrence – you don’t want to miss out!

Hometown: Plattsburgh, NY
Major/Minor: Performance and Communication Arts major
Study Abroad Experience: Denmark (Spring 2017)
Favorite Thing about SLU: All of the student organizations and clubs! I love the strong sense of community and togetherness that comes from being involved with groups on campus. It’s a great way to meet new people and make friends on campus. 
Advice for First-Year Students:  Be adventurous. Go outside of your comfort zone and discover more about yourself. Try a joining a group that you wouldn’t normally. You might discover a passion for it.

Nina Melkonyan
Class Year: 2018
Hometown: Yerevan, Armenia
Major/Minor: Government major, Psychology minor
Study Abroad Experience: Thailand
Favorite Thing About SLU: Those long hours in the Student Center, where you get to know people on a deeper and more personal level by talking about classes, politics, cultural differences, and maybe a bit about the events that occurred the last weekend.
Advice for First-Year Students: Check your emails every day! Stop by and read what that poster in the student center says! This place is full of opportunities; you just need to watch out and not be afraid to extend your hand and grab them, because the saddest thing is graduating with a feeling that you didn’t engage enough.

Chloe Warner

Class Year: 2018
Hometown: Manchester, NH
Major/Minor: Government and Global Studies double major
Study Abroad Experience:London FYP and Thailand
Favorite Thing about SLU: Location, I like all of the outdoor activities we can do as well as the fact that students don't go home often so we all hang out with each other.
Advice for First-Year Students: I would advise students to complete your distribution requirements early on. This not only helps with choosing what field interests you most but will allow you to pursue your major once it’s decided.
