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

The Zen Garden: The Fruit of a Class Vision

Putting the Darkest Morning Behind Us
If you have been thinking it’s awfully dark in the morning, you are correct. Due to the wisdom of the United States Congress, we won’t switch back to Standard Time until Sunday morning (11/3) at 2 a.m.
As a Vermonter I grew up in the woods and around people who fished and hunted, but it wasn't until I got to St. Lawrence that I got into fishing.
Cooking up a Batch of Fun with the Campus Kitchens Project
There’s nothing quite like getting together with a group of friends and whipping up a delicious meal. Taking a few hours away from schoolwork to chop some veggies, slice some meat and mix cookie dough to create a spectacular dinner is certainly a worthwhile experience. But the icing on the cake is that this food gets to go back to the Canton community. This grand show of preparing, cooking and serving a meal in town is what the Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) is all about.
