Social Media Community Guidelines

St. Lawrence University's social media accounts are online communities for our prospective students, current students, families, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and fans. We welcome people to post photos, engage in discussions and ask questions of each other and of us; we will do our best to respond in a timely manner.

Social media is designed to be a social space, and it is likely people may share views and perspectives that differ from your own or don’t align with the University’s mission. While we believe in everyone’s right to free speech and encourage our community to engage in constructive and respectful dialogue, we do not tolerate messages that attack or uses pejorative or discriminatory language with reference to a person or a group on the basis of who they are (e.g. their religion, ethnicity, nationality, race, color, descent, gender, or other identity factors). We also do not tolerate messages that include vulgar language, contain advertisements/spam, are off-topic, infringe on someone's rights, or are a violation of law. We reserve the right to remove these messages. Repeat violators of these guidelines may be removed or banned from any University-owned social media accounts where the violations have taken place.

We thank you in advance for helping us make this space one that best reflects the Laurentian spirit.
