Transportation: University Van Reserved on specific days-see preference form, this means that CBL has automatically reserved a SLU vehicle for students’ use.

Mission: According to their website, "The Boys & Girls Club is a positive place for kids! The Ogdensburg Boys & Girls Club was established in 1964 by a group of people that believed a place was needed to serve boys of the Ogdensburg area to provide them with educational, recreational, social, and other positive traits. Admitting the first ever girl in 1975, today the Ogdensburg Boys & Girls Club serves over 1,000 boys and girls a year from Ogdensburg and throughout St. Lawrence County."
