Athletics & Recreation

On the field. On the ice. On the court. Laurentians compete in varsity, intramural and club sports and enjoy plenty of outdoor adventures.

St. Lawrence University has 35 varsity sports and is a member of ECAC Hockey for our NCAA Division I hockey programs and the Liberty league for our NCAA Division III programs, both of which are committed to academic and athletic excellence. We also have robust campus recreation and intramural opportunities that include club sports, fitness classes, and more.
