Favorite thing about SLU: The community—everyone here is welcoming and friendly! When I was a student here, I felt free to explore myself and the world around me.
Favorite spot in the North Country: Lake Placid—It’s so beautiful and there is lots to see and do! Plus, the fact that it’s a 2-time Winter Olympic city is pretty cool, too.
Favorite restaurant in the North Country: Jake’s on the Water in Potsdam, NY
Tip for incoming First-Year Students: Embrace the newness and just be yourself. Trust me, you’re not the only one that’s nervous about a big life change. And that’s okay! There’s lots of people here to support you. And while you’re here, take advantage of all the fun opportunities St. Lawrence has—whether that be joining a new club, going to our on-campus music venue, or exploring our close proximity to the Adirondack mountains. There’s so much to do!
