St. Lawrence's Top 10 Blog Posts of 2019

Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Laurentians love stories. In 2019, we shared nearly 90 of them here on the St. Lawrence Blog. This is a space that gives students (and sometimes faculty, staff members and alumni) a chance to share the ways St. Lawrence empowers them to explore, experiment, and grow in order to better themselves, communities, and the world. These insights help future Saints better understand what sets the St. Lawrence community apart from everyone else.

The blog is one of the most popular parts of the St. Lawrence Admissions website. In 2019, visits to the blog’s homepage and our audience's favorite 10 posts shared this year totaled more than 10,000 views. In case you missed some of them, now is your chance to catch up.
