- First-Year Program
“There are over 140 clubs at St. Lawrence!” My Orientation Leader promised me and my fellow first-year students with a cheerful smile.
At St. Lawrence, everyone's first-year journey is unique. No one has to follow a set structure or plan to find a home here. With tons of clubs, student organizations, and campus events to choose from, each and every student, no matter what their interests, creates their own fitted first-year recipe. Here is a glimpse of mine.
The Public Speaking Contest is an opportunity for students to show off their verbal communication abilities with the possibility of earning a cash prize. Participants will give extemporaneous speeches from any class on any topic, demonstrating that communication skills are essential across disciplines.

Forty-three percent graduated at the top of their class. They celebrated their Matriculation on Sunday, August 20, and are now poised to make their mark on St. Lawrence.
