The St. Lawrence Blog
Who is St. Lawrence University? We are a group of people with countless adventures and even more stories. The St. Lawrence Blog gives our students, faculty and staff the chance to tell their tales, in their own words and in their own way. Sharing these anecdotes in one place gives our community the chance to show how creative, daring and passionate we are about what we do. Alone, these stories are powerful; together they define St. Lawrence.

As a second semester senior, I have spent a considerable amount of time thinking about all the things I will take away from my St. Lawrence experience.
It wasn’t the professors, or even the course I was taking, that made my First-Year Program (FYP) experience so memorable. The group of unfamiliar people that I would soon come to associate with laughter, comfort and never-ending conversation enriched my first year at St.
You may be familiar with the Butterfly Theory, or maybe the 2004 psychological thriller The Butterfly Effect, which popularized it. If not, no need to fret.
As a sophomore, I first heard about the Association for Campus Entertainment (ACE) when they advertised that Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, my favorite band, would be performing a 10th anniversary concert at St. Lawrence that winter.
In high school I got involved with my student government, mostly because it was something that my friends were also involved in (and also because it would get me out of homeroom). Over the course of my four years, I ended up in higher positions and found I was really having an influence on my
There are plenty of awesome places to live on campus these days at SLU (apart from just the new dorm), but I wanted to talk about what I believe to be one of our more unique living options: our theme houses. This is not just because I live in one, but because so many of our students do.
It's that time of the year again! In mid-September, more than 100 sophomores, juniors and seniors at St.
In July, I had the pleasure of meeting with my advisor (and also head of the English department) Associate Professor of English Sarah Gates for one of my summer projects.
My role as a tour guide this summer may be my principal, and quite honestly my favorite, duty as an Admissions Intern, but giving campus tours is merely one of many tasks I have taken on over the past few months.
Anytime the mention of summer plans came up in conversation, my uncertainty followed shortly after. I was so used to going back home to Zambia every summer; I nearly packed my suitcases several times, ready to temporarily disappear.
On May 18, the Class of 2014 will receive their diplomas and become proud graduates of St. Lawrence University. No matter how much I want time to slow down, my time as a student here is coming to a close and a new chapter of my life is going to begin.
The great and prolific Mark Twain once said, "Don't let your schooling interfere with your education." So we listened to him, took Ajaan Kai's Economics exam early, and caught a cheap flight to Vietnam via Bangkok.
About 25 schools that fit my college search criteria popped up on the computer screen, and among them was St. Lawrence and one of the other three universities in the North Country (of course, I was naïve of the rivalries back then).
