Some parents discuss why they’re high on St. Lawrence
By Bryce K. Hinchman

Parents. Without hesitation, they pull out the pocketbooks to pay for the books, the food, the room, the tuition and all other expenditures associated with college life to ensure that their children receive a solid education. But what do the parents really think about the scarlet and brown?

“We tell people that it's an excellent University,” says Christine Haney, of New Canaan, Conn. who encouraged her son, Brent ’09, to apply at St. Lawrence based on its reputation. “It's academically challenging and rewarding with an amazing network of alumni. I love the support, the quality of the professors, the opportunities,” she remarks. When asked if she would recommend St. Lawrence to other parents, Haney replies, “absolutely.”

Claire Daly of Sudbury, Mass., says, “It has a great sense of community. I'm glad that my son [Alex ‘10] is there because I know that he is getting an excellent education and he's in a place where he is cared about as a student.”

Jody Myers, from Fairfield, Conn., has a daughter, Kimberly ’08, at St. Lawrence. “She's loved it from the first day that she got there,” Myers says. “Everybody's friendly and positive.”
