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?
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.”
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.”
