The Retention Committee's goal is to help all students thrive at St. Lawrence, engaging in meaningful ways in academic and co-curricular pursuits that lead to academic success, deep connections within the campus community, and personal growth. We are committed to working with all faculty and staff to improve the overall student experience as well as to support individual students in finding what they are seeking from their St. Lawrence education.
To this end, we welcome suggestions from faculty, staff, and students about how to improve the student experience and information about particular students who would like help making their Laurentian experience better.
The First-Gen Initiative has been developed to both support and celebrate first-generation college students (students who are the first in their family to go to college).
