The year 2021 marks 20 years since September 11, 2001, a profoundly transformative moment. Join St. Lawrence University faculty, staff, and alumni guests for a full week of activities (Sept. 3-11) as our community reflects on the many ways both our national and global communities have been impacted.
International Student Services supports the intellectual, ethical, personal, and social development of St. Lawrence's international students as they explore their place and purpose as engaged learners in a diverse and interdependent University and world. We recognize that many of today's students identify with multiple cultures and we are excited to welcome these students to the St. Lawrence family. We are here to help all students gain a global perspective as they develop as individuals in the pursuit of education.
