I get asked all the time: “Why SLU?” “What made you decide to come here?” Quite frankly, I knew absolutely nothing about SLU when I decided that I wanted to come here. I didn’t know anything about academics, social life, athletics, or residential life.
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.

Surviving an Outdoor Major as an Indoor Kid
A ladybug scared me on the van ride back to St. Lawrence. To give myself some credit, there were multiple ladybugs and they were all very active. Every time I flinched, I apologized profusely to the rest of the geology lab students in the van.
The Zen Garden: The Fruit of a Class Vision
It’s not hard to find a peaceful spot on the St. Lawrence campus. I’ve spent countless afternoons beneath autumn-tinged trees, or reclined in an Adirondack chair on the quad, spending quiet moments to let the North County beauty sink in.
Snapshots of SLU

Swing Dance Club
During my first semester here at St. Lawrence, I was completely overwhelmed when I visited the Student Club and Organization Fair. There were so many clubs and organizations that had tables set up with club members all eager to talk about why their club was the best.
Adventures in the Outdoors
I first heard of St. Lawrence when I was 14 years old, on a three-week whitewater trip on the Rapid River located on the New Hampshire-Maine border.
Learning a New Language
