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.

William O'Brien First-Year Research Prizes
Each spring, we select three students whose research in their FYS best reflects exemplary achievement of the goals of the FYS. Those three students will receive cash awards and will have the opportunity to present their research to the campus community at the Honors Reception during Family Weekend in the fall of their sophomore year.

Campus Myths
It has been said that…

  • One Lincoln Street is haunted;
  • The University employs someone for the sole purpose of packing a path through the snow across the Quad;
  • A graduate arranged that ice cream would be available to the students every day.
Are these true? If you find out, let us know…

Quad Experience
As your entering class gathers on the Quad during Orientation, night falls and one by one candles illuminate each person in the huge circle. The Quad Experience is the first chance for everyone in the class to come together. It is inspired by the unofficial St. Lawrence motto, referring to the University’s founders who “Lit a candle in the wilderness which will never be extinguished.”

Care Packages
Campus Support Services sponsors a care package program to help parents and family members connect with their student during critical times of the year.  Mailings are sent home during the year, and proceeds from this program are used for student leadership opportunities and programming.  You can also visit Care Packages [at the top select "shop by school" and choose St. Lawrence University] to place orders for birthdays, holidays, or "just because."  Please contact Customer Service at 1-866-847-7365 with any questions regarding your purchase.
