Commencement 2013 brought that bittersweet
feeling that any St. Lawrence alumni can relate to.
It was bitter to leave the place we called home for
the past four years and fostered so many life-long
friendships. However, there is something sweet in
knowing that we are all about to enter the next
exciting chapter of our lives. From art to finance,
education to technology, we have dispersed all
over the globe to pursue our passions.
Two classmates have traveled to Asia to make
their mark on the world.
Charles “Alex” Merrell
was accepted into the Woodenfish Project and
will be studying Buddhism on mainland China.
Through this academic-intensive program, he will
gain a thorough knowledge of the diversity of the
Buddhist religion.
In June and July,
Kylie Morris
and a few fellow
recent graduates traveled to Taiwan with Profes-
sor WannieWang to teach English. Kylie has been
teaching these students over Skype for about a
year and was really excited to interact with them
in person over a three-week summer program.
Not only are our classmates following their
dreams overseas; many who left the St. Lawrence
University nest moved to different parts of the U.S.

States Army as a second lieutenant in the Chemi-
cal Corps. He instructed junior college students at

lowing this he attended Chemical Basic Officer
