FALL 2013 | ST. LAWRENCE UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE 1
On the cover:
Rochana Cooray ’14, from Colombo, Sri Lanka,
has big ideas for her future, and she’s doing
something about them. Last spring, while on the
New York City Semester, she completed a finance
internship with Mark Tavern ’94 (see page 26).
Rochi,” who is majoring in economics and global
studies and works in the St. Lawrence admissions
office, is just one of many students who envision
making a mark in the world, and alumni entre-
preneurs such as those profiled in this issue of
St. Lawrence,
are their models.
