A community is a place where we feel comfortable being ourselves; a place where we are encouraged and supported by our peers. When I was looking at colleges, I knew the type of community that I wanted, but how was I supposed to find it?
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.
For questions about the St. Lawrence Blog, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Am I the Culture Shock?
Being in college forces you to grow up in a lot of ways. It’s not just being away from home that does this. This is not a blog post demanding you to suppress parts of yourself that ultimately make up the person you are.
The Butterfly Effect - How St. Lawrence Spreads Its Wings
