Favorite thing about St. Lawrence: The people are what make this campus unique. There is something relaxing and laid-back about how our campus runs, and the people are a huge part of that. This is the kind of place where not saying hi to someone when you pass them is more awkward than actually saying it - even if you have no idea who they are!
Favorite spot in the North Country: My "getaway" is my family camp in the Cranberry Lake area - nothing is a better escape than sitting on the back porch of the cabin in the woods with a good book!
Favorite restaurant in the North Country: the 'Ole Smokehouse in Madrid Springs, New York
Tip for incoming first-year students: Be who you are and try things you never thought you would. Try a new activity and don't be afraid to get involved!
