The St. Lawrence Sophomore Success Initiative offers sophomores a variety of resources—including sophomore seminars featuring intensive mentoring and a calendar of events designed to allow sophomores to connect to services and programs across campus—to aid them in exploring their interests, building a network and designing a plan for success. We also sponsor an exciting range of summer projects----(here are this past summer's!) through the Saints Start Challenge Grant program.
