At St. Lawrence University academic advising is about more than helping you pick courses each semester and fulfilling requirements. It is a four-year process of planning an academic career. Each of your four years of college will likely be different. In your first year, you will get to know St. Lawrence and explore possibilities.
What follows are St. Lawrence’s “Aims and Objectives." We strongly encourage you to read these over so that you can see how the First-Year Program (FYP), your other courses and your life on campus relate to these aims and objectives.
Bradley R. Evers Outstanding First-Year Student Awards These are awarded annually and presented each spring at the Student Organization and Leadership awards banquet during the last week of classes to first-year students who best exemplify qualities of academic achievement and good citizenship at the University.
Students assume ALL responsibility for any loss or damage to their personal property. The University does not assume any responsibility for any such loss or damages regardless of the circumstances. Accordingly, we encourage students to make sure that they have insurance coverage to protect their property. If your property is not covered under a parent’s insurance policy, we strongly encourage you to purchase a renters insurance policy. St Lawrence has partnered with Sallie Mae Insurance Services, an Independent Agency, to provide a renters policy.
Your completed Housing Assignment Profile form is used to assign you a room and to match you to a roommate (if applicable). Be sure to complete this form carefully so we have the best information possible to make decisions regarding your placement. New first year students or transfers with only one semester of college should expect to be placed in first year housing. Upperclass transfer students are usually assigned to vacancies in upperclass residential buildings or theme cottages.
Each first-year college elects two representatives to the First-Year Council, as well as the student senate, the governing body of SLU’s student government, the Thelomathesian Society. These students provide leadership within the college, as well as outside of it. For college planning, or when it is necessary to discuss college issues, faculty and staff work with these students, as well as others who are interested, to plan programs, college-wide discussions and social activities.
