Campus News
Science Construction Update: The exterior is almost done and construction crews will move inside for the final stages of completing the Johnson Hall of Science. View the photo album and visit the many related news stories on our Web site about the sciences. St. Lawrence received a challenge grant from the Kresge Foundation last fall to help fund science facilities construction. In order to meet the challenge, the University must raise just over $4.1 million in new gifts and pledges for the project by April 1, 2007. The new photo album was updated December 2, 2006.

"The Divine Miss M" (Bette Midler), folk-pop singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan, country artist Brad Paisley and Bonu Gibson & New Orleans Hot Jazz will all be helping out St. Lawrence University this holiday season. They are among the musicians who have released new recordings of the song "I'll Be Home For Christmas," for which partial royalties are paid to St. Lawrence.
