I see others comment that it’s horrible here because it’s in the middle of nowhere, and I wonder if they didn’t notice that when they visited? It’s definitely rural, and I don’t have any issues with that. Same with the off campus bars and restaurants. A small town is not going to have spectacular nightlife.
The food is ok and definitely gets repetitive in Dana. I like the Pub and use the meal exchange a lot.
There are a lot of affluent white kids, but you can’t magically increase diversity. We do have a pretty good size international student body and I think that helps. If you’re a minority, please apply, that’s how you increase diversity. I am quirky and a bit awkward and I have found a wonderful group of friends, so while you see a lot of preppy kids, I haven’t had any trouble fitting in. I really like my professors so far. I do know some kids who don’t love a professor here and there.

Students smart, very preppy, come from a lot of money! Weather not so good.
Athletics very good, very competitive. Students are friendly. Dorms Ok.. newer Dorm is best. Area/community - not much going on. Not many hotels. Winters are cold.
SLU is an awesome place to go to school! I am only a freshman here, but I have enjoyed by first year so much! Everyone is extremely nice, and it is easy to find a friend group! The campus community is very close, I will say that must be partly due to the fact that off of the campus there isn't much to do! St. Lawrence has great relationships with their alumni, and offers amazing help in career services! Overall, I love it here!
