I love St. Lawrence University. When I originally made my decision to attend St. Lawrence I was a little skeptical, but the school has a great reputation and alumni connections. Attending SLU I have seen myself become the person I always wanted to be. I have made so many wonderful friends and met a lot of important alumni. I have felt challenged by my courses and feel like I have really learned something. The food is great and the overall sense of community really makes it feel like home.
St. Lawrence is a great school for people looking to work hard for the grades they want. It is not easy and the professors are not in it to let you slide by just because you are not putting effort in, with that being said, the professors are always open to talk and let you know what you can be doing better.
Our athletics are not just the varsity sports, but there are a wide variety of club teams to join and a plethora of groups and organizations to join when you arrive!
The food is pretty good compared to other schools, but remember to explore the rest of the options, not just the dining hall!
Just make sure you remember your purpose is to get an education, not to drink and go crazy; however there are plenty of opportunities for that if you find the right group of people. Keep your head on your shoulders and remember to call mom and dad!
This is an excellent liberal arts university. With small class sizes and a close knit community, St. Lawrence only wishes the best for their students and hope to see them succeed after they graduate. While the winters are long there is no shortage of activities and the SLU community makes the most of the frozen tundra by taking advantage of the Adirondacks and other North Country adventures!
Immediately when you arrive it gives off a home-like feeling. It is beautiful throughout all seasons and in a small area of Upstate,NY- the campus is overall very safe. The cafe has a variety of all delicious food and offers options for folks who have certain diets such as gluten-free, vegetarian, or vegan. The dorms have a decent space and are all very nice. The class sizes are small therefore you get quality education. Overall, SLU is a great place to be and is worth every cent of tuition.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for St Lawrence University is 42%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
It is very important to visit each school that you or your child applys to. I think some may be detered from the location of SLu.
Small school with emphasis on teaching. Located in small, rural, low-income town. Very active campus community. Unique off-campus study programs. Lots of things to do on campus. Option for double major. Students have a lot of freedom to take courses that interest them. Many ways to get involved on campus and in the community. All undergraduate students live on campus. Many diverse major and minor options. Environmentally and socially conscious.
More about how awful the weather is. How dull the social life is if you are not in a sorority.
Serious of purpose.
The worst thing about my school is the lack of diversity. There are students who come from other countries, but the majority of the students who attend are primarily caucasian. This is considered fairly normal for many colleges and universities, but I wish that the student body was more diverse. It would give the students who are rarely exposed to other cultures, the opportunity to engage in and interact with others, ultimately allowing them to learn from one another. Sometimes I hear cloes-minded statements from students in my school and wish that I could change that.
The size, location and type of student body creates a tight-knit community that is unique to St. Lawrence!
St. Lawrence was a place where I was able to find who I was and who I wanted to be with the support of everyone on campus. It was an unimaginable experience for me.
a person who is outgoing, hardworking, hard partying and isn't afraid to try new things
A liberal person that doesn't like heavy drinking, anyone dealing with sexuality or gender issues, and shy people.
The community, everyone is friendly and upbeat. There is always someone willing to help others out
trying to get into specific classes
Here at St. Lawrence I have had a great academic experience. My professors all know my names and they are always willing to meet with me. Class participation occurs constantly and students are very competitive within classes. Discussions take place out of class and I think the academic requirements are challenging but effective. My favorite class thus far was my FYP, "Having an Impact." A majority of our students enter the workforce after graduation.
One of the best things about St. Lawrence is the sense of community that we've established. I love the size of the school (2,300) and the town of Canton. There are a variety of activities both on and off campus! I spend time in the student center while on campus in addition to the athletic center and my dorm room. We have a great sense of pride here at St. Lawrence and I will always remember sporting events like our intense men's soccer games. I think one thing students complain about is how St. Lawrence can tend to form cliques at times.
We have tons of clubs and teams on campus. I am on the softball and track team, the Black Student Union, Orientation Leaders, and the Class Gift Giving Committee. Athletic events are extremely popular. Students usually leave their doors open. I met my closest friends through my FYP. People party on Thursdays and Saturdays usually. Frats and sororities are part of campus, but not overwhelming. Saturdays you can watch free movies in the student center, go to Pub 56, hang out with friends, go out to dinner, and more.
Although we do have students that come from wealth, and those that come from prep schools, not everyone at St. Lawrence is a "prep" or "rich". I have met a lot of great people here that are down to Earth and kind-hearted.
Not necessarily--at all. Many St. Lawrence students do come from New England, New York, and the mid-Atlantic states, but close to every state and several countries are represented on campus. Because financial aid is so generous, students come from all different types of socioeconomic backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities, and orientations.
This a very stuck-up place full of "preps"... only rich, white students attend.
This is a party school.
