Stories from Our CommunityThe St. Lawrence story is every Laurentian’s story: every student achievement, every faculty accolade, every alumni accomplishment. Here are a few Saints making us proud.
A Glimpse Into Laurentian LifeSt. Lawrence students are academically ambitious, socially aware, globally conscious, and driven to help others—and these traits come alive every day on campus.
Welcome to the best backyard ever. Whether it’s hiking, exploring local eateries, or volunteering in nearby communities, you’ll find plenty to do on our 1,000-acre campus and throughout the North Country.
With open hearts and minds, St. Lawrence students shape the campus experience by challenging the status quo through involvement in clubs and organizations. A recent example: the annual student-led TEDxStLawrenceU brings Laurentians together to engage with fresh perspectives and forward-thinking topics.
One-third of Laurentians are varsity student-athletes, and every one of their friends, professors, and mentors are fierce, spirited supporters of the Saints.
