Recruitment area: Colorado, Massachusetts, and Vermont.
Favorite thing about SLU: I find it near impossible to highlight my love of St. Lawrence with just one favorite thing, but when it comes down to it, SLU becomes both a home and a family, an energized place of effervescent pride that is embodied by Laurentians who are eager and motivated to build their experiences, seek their individuality, and enrich the world around them!
Favorite spot in the North Country: Just about any place where I can get out on the water! The Thousand Islands and Lake Placid take the cake for this neck of the woods.
Favorite restaurant in the North Country: 1844 House and Jake's on the Water are a toss-up for me!
Tips for incoming first-year students: Do the things that initially displace you from your comfort zone, the things that you may be immediately included to say no to. I guarantee that saying yes to new opportunities will surprise you in the end run, so grab life by your Bean Boots and throw yourself into the mix of all that campus (and beyond) has to offer.
