Here at SLU I have found so many ways to get involved, both on campus and off. By joining the riding team, I found an awesome group of athletes on campus, and becoming involved in Greek life has expanded my group of friends even further. By taking leadership positions in Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership honor society, Tri-Beta, the biology honor society, and Panhellenic Council, the governing body of sororities, I've had the opportunity to hone my ability to be a team player and lead a group.

I truly believe that SLU offers students something more just than academics, athletics, or extracurriculars activities. Students who graduate from St. Lawrence bring a separate set of leadership skills to the table, which they've learned during their years here.

Why Canadian Studies? Canton's close proximity to Canada puts us in ideal location to study the nation. My first Canadian studies course was taken as a first-year student to fill a diversity requirement. From then on, I was hooked! I loved learning about a culture that paralleled the US in development, but maintains a "uniqueness" in culture and government. The similarities and differences provide plenty of interesting material to delve into, and studies of Canada can often be related to studies of other cultures.
