Keyna Students Safe; University Monitoring the Situation

Students studying in Kenya as part of St. Lawrence University's Kenya Semester Program are all safe and accounted for, following the recent mass shooting at a mall in Nairobi, Kenya.

"This weekend, an armed attack at a shopping mall in Nairobi resulted in numerous fatalities and serious injuries," said Karl K. Schonberg, associate dean of International and Intercultural Studies. "Our students are safe and unaffected by these events. I have spoken with our program director in Nairobi, who confirmed that all of our students were present on St. Lawrence’s campus in the Karen neighborhood, far from the area where the mall is located."

Students will begin their homestays this week in Nairobi, however they remain far from the mall.
