Gretchen Brooker | St. Lawrence University Student Activities & Leadership

Gretchen Brooker

Class year: 

Major: History
Why did you become an OL? I became an OL because I absolutely love St. Lawrence! I want everyone who comes to St. Lawrence to love it as much as I do by showing them the opportunities that it has to offer as both a school and a community. I also believe that Orientation Leaders make a significant difference in the representation of SLU to the new students, so I wanted to be able to introduce new students to St. Lawrence in the most positive way, like my OLs did for me.
Any advice to First Years? Make sure you learn how to order food at the pub before the first day of classes when it's super busy!
Favorite thing to do at SLU? Jumping into the Grasse River on hot days!
Favorite food item on campus? Chicken salad with grapes on 12 grain bread with spinach and tomato from Newell! (the chicken salad there is the best on campus)
Fun Fact: Last summer I went on a cross-country road trip from New York to Montana to see the national parks and go fly fishing!
