"Mom's and Dad's Recipes Go to College." That's how Joan Lunden of Good Morning America introduced a feature story on our parent recipe program. We have even published a cookbook of favorite parents' recipes.
We invite you to join the program. We're always searching for new ideas for our dining hall menus. Often we hear students say, "My Mom makes the best spaghetti I ever had!", or "Why can't you make barbecued chicken as well as Dad can?" In 1987, we began to take students at their word. We invited parents to send recipes from home and the result has been terrific!
Each summer, St. Lawrence University parents and alumni welcome our incoming first-year students and their families to a send-off event. The summer send-off events are hosted throughout the Northeast and are made possible by the generosity of our alumni and parents. There is no charge for any of these events and we welcome you to attend any send-off event that you can. This is a great opportunity to meet other incoming students from the Class of 2018, as well as some of our outstanding alumni and parents.
