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.

As a second semester senior, I have spent a considerable amount of time thinking about all the things I will take away from my St. Lawrence experience.

You may be familiar with the Butterfly Theory, or maybe the 2004 psychological thriller The Butterfly Effect, which popularized it. If not, no need to fret.
Ever since early high school, I was enamored with the idea of starting down a career path of my own. This interest sparked through an internship at the Urban Outfitters Headquarters in Men’s Buying.

My St. Lawrence journey has been molded by ping pong. Of course I didn’t expect this as a first-year student, but ping pong has become my greatest tool for finding my path as a Saint.
Bringing a bike to St. Lawrence makes sense for two reasons: the campus and the student body.
In the 5th grade, I announced to my mom that I wouldn’t be going to college. “Does everyone HAVE to go?’ I queried. My older sister’s knowing smile (or maybe it was a sneer) crept across her face as she parroted, “Yes. YOU HAVE to go!” My stomach sank.
On Saturday, October 21, nearly 240 students participated in the national Make A Difference Day, also known as MADD. This day is celebrated across the country in which universities come together through service.
Star gazing at midnight, s’mores and friends, and a barbecue every week pretty much sums up my summer. This summer I was on campus monitoring wild bee diversity in ornamental gardens alongside approximately 50 other students. My research was funded by the Ronald E.
St. Lawrence offers students the opportunity to take classes on “the inside." Each semester, professors from departments such as English, chemistry, the First-Year Program and history offer a learning experience like no other.
Picture this: It’s the end of November of your senior year of high school and you already know where you are going to college the next fall. That was what the college application and admission process was like for me during my senior year. But, why did I decide to go Early Decision (ED)?
