Let Me Research That....

Time was when research was done mostly by inscrutable scientists at big universities. No more. Today, research is an integral part of the undergraduate experience at colleges and universities everywhere, and St. Lawrence is exemplary.  In a deliberate and dedicated drive to make research opportunities a possibility for all students, St. Lawrence has created  and continues to seek larger funding for programs such as the University Fellowship and travel research grants, and has gratefully accepted grants to create these opportunities, such as Tanner Fellowship and the Heuer Fellowship, among many more.

Rather than merely tell you about student research, we decided to show you examples of research across the curriculum.  Here you will become acquainted with historical research done by students in the interdisciplinary course 1856, which produced posters on topics surrounding the founding of St. Lawrence; scientific research conducted for last spring’s Festival of Science; cultural research undertaken by a student in the land of her ancestors, with the help of a University travel grant and in collaboration with her professor; and technical research a student pursued in order to complete a course in film-making for the English department.
