Laurentians in Residence highlights the power of the Laurentian network through alumni and student interactions during a two-day in-residence program. Each semester Laurentian leaders return to campus to connect with students through classroom presentations, networking and informal conversations, and an interactive career panel discussion. This fall, four alumni will be on campus on October 17th and 18th showcasing the power of connections, a priority in The Campaign for Every Laurentian, as they speak with students about their careers, share experiences and advice, and offer insight into life after St. Lawrence.

This program is sponsored, in part, by the Alumni Executive Council, and is a collaboration between University Advancement, Career Services, and the Student Alumni Association.
