St. Lawrence University Reviews
Students are much more diverse than you'd think and passionate about SLU. I love the walkable campus life and even to downtown for a night out. Teachers are there for the students and approachable. The freshman year is cool outside of the box learning experience that helps you bond with one another. Study abroad programs are strong as well. Food in the dining halls is quite good too and there are plenty of options for vegans and omnivores. The biggest pain is getting there but once you've arrived, you're in for a great life experience!
St. Lawrence is a beautiful, rural college. It is a small sized college with so many nice people. There is a large sense of community here. The teachers here are very willing to help, and want to get to know you personally. There are many clubs on campus, and you can always find an activity that you like even if it isn't a club. There are 3 other colleges around St. Lawrence so there is a large amount of college students that you can connect with. The only downside to SLU is that there is a little disconnect between the administration buildings.
Saint Lawrence has so much to offer students. The administration is so happy to help every student establish and achieve their academic goals. The students make a small campus feel close-knit with friendly faces that greet you when you pass. Warm smiles from everyone on campus make the winters bearable. The networking opportunities at St. Lawrence are like no other, your future beyond college life is made such a priority at this school.
