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.

Alone, these stories are powerful; together they define St. Lawrence.

How Many Laps is a Mile?
28. That's how many laps it took to run a mile in the Brewer Fieldhouse Indoor Track when it was constructed in 1925. Just twenty years ago, the Brewer Bookstore was established from the building that formerly was the St.

The Magic of the Liberal Arts: How Being Indecisive Helped Me Find My Major
If my friends and family were asked, “What word best describes Sally?”, without an ounce of hesitation the answer would be, “Indecisive." Whether it’s picking a place to eat, a show to watch, or a simple yes-or-no question, I always require a significant amount of time to weigh my options.
Fighting the Freshman 15: Food Options, Exercise Opportunities
Let’s be real here, a girl’s gotta eat! And, while I’m used to my traditional Ethiopian dinners (cooked by my mom at home) and having after-school sports incorporated into my schedule to keep me fit, college is VERY different.
