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
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.

The Peakin' Weekend
In 1982, members of the student-run Outing Club devised the event that they dubbed “46er Day.” Now, 31 years later, the tradition has a new title, “Peak Weekend”, yet remains an essential student ritual.
Celebrating Greek Bid Day
If you had asked me in high school if I would join a sorority, I would have looked at you like you were insane. But here I am, a senior in college, loving the fact that I have been running recruitment for each of the sororities on campus as the Pan-Hellenic Recruitment Chair at St. Lawrence this semester.
Where in the World Do YOU Want to Go?
The deadline has come and gone and students are now playing the game everyone dreads the most: the waiting game. September 10th was the application deadline for students interested in going abroad in spring 2014.
To the Class of 2017 (and Future Laurentians)
When we recently asked our alumni, students, faculty and friends what they would add to a St. Lawrence bucket list, more than 100 responded with everything from local food recommendations to beautiful North Country scenic spots, clubs to take part in and traditions to hold on to.
