It isn't just faculty who organize international learning experiences
at St. Lawrence; sometimes the students do it themselves. Leah Krieger
'03, Carbondale, Col., began organizing such an experience during her
freshman year. "Professors from history, government and religious
studies gave their time to help us with preparations," said Krieger,
and Thelmo helped with expenses. Over the January 2001 break, she led
a group of six other students on a 14-day cultural and adventure trip
to the fascinating island of Bali in the South Pacific.
In Bali in January 2001, the St. Lawrence party learns a traditional
dance. In the left row from back to front are Mike Heintzelman '01,
