A community is a place where we feel comfortable being ourselves; a place where we are encouraged and supported by our peers. When I was looking at colleges, I knew the type of community that I wanted, but how was I supposed to find it?
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.
