What is your favorite St. Lawrence tradition?
Pub Cookies! They’re not a tradition, per se… but they’re awesome. You’ll get a chocolate-chip Pub Cookie if you set up a campus tour, info session, or in-person interview through Admissions. I’m pretty sure Dining Services puts a full stick of butter in each of them!
What’s your biggest piece of advice for prospective students during the college process?
Don’t rely solely on Google! Be sure to check (and double-check) every college’s website for the most up-to-date information on available majors, housing options, scholarships, and other important details. Also, be careful about submitting your SAT or ACT scores to test-optional schools. If your test scores aren’t as strong as your grades, submitting them could hurt your chances of receiving merit money.
What is your favorite North Country adventure?
Lake Placid is less than two hours from Canton and is a cool spot to visit. The village hosted the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics and serves as a home base for elite athletes in many sports. Several of the Olympic venues and facilities are open to visitors—you can even take a bobsled ride!—and the downtown area has lots of shops and restaurants.
