Class of 2015

Welcome January Entrants

Welcome to St. Lawrence University! 

The New Student Guide & Forms (NSG&F) website is a resource for you during your transition to the St. Lawrence community. Although this site was written with first-year students in mind, we find that this information is helpful to all new students in their transition to the University.

If you have not already done so, please make sure to:

1. Return all of the required forms found on this site as soon as possible, but by no later than the following deadlines.

Welcome from Student Government President

To the Class of 2017,

Congratulations! On behalf of the St. Lawrence community I would like to welcome you. You are officially a Saint; in a few short months you will arrive on campus and begin your lifelong journey as a Laurentian. The student body is both sad to see the seniors graduate and anxious to meet the Class of 2017 and discover all that you will bring to our campus.

Driving and Parking Directions

PLEASE NOTE: You may park in front of your student’s residential hall building to unload. Once you are unloaded, you must move your vehicle to the designated parking lot for your student’s building. This process will allow others the opportunity to unload. Information regarding parking lot designation and directions to the residence halls and parking lots are provided below. Thank you for your cooperation.

SLUWire

You’ll discover that within both academic and social circles of St. Lawrence, there is a lot that needs to be communicated. You will need to keep current with your e-mail to stay on top of university and classroom business, and for really knowing what’s going on across the university community, you will need to consult SLUWire. SLUWire is where university offices, campus organizations, associations, and fellow Laurentian’s find and share information about campus happenings.
