I chose St. Lawrence because of the small student population and rural location of the school. The tight-knit community that a small number of students creates was something that I was looking for and I have certainly found it here. I decided to double major because I always liked learning any type of history and I've always been a big reader. My experience with the SLU English department has been nothing but positive - all of the professors are great and more than willing to help you out and answer any questions. The wide variety of English classes have pushed me to become a better writer and more analytical in my reading of texts, two skills which have helped strengthen my abilities not just as an English major but as a student in general.
