It's there if you want it, but there's no weirdness if you choose to opt out.
College Junior 2013-12-10T10:05:02Z
Again, Canton NY is tiny. There's nothing in town.
College Junior 2013-12-10T10:04:24Z
I am so proud to be a student at St. Lawrence and so grateful to have had the opportunity to attend.

Guys & Girls:
I love my classmates. Obviously you'll get a mixed bag everywhere you go, but I've never felt unwelcome on campus.
College Junior 2013-12-10T10:03:07Z
Having worked in dining services, I can pretty safely give my approval.
College Junior 2013-12-10T09:57:33Z
We're pretty isolated, so parties only ever happen on campus. There's nothing in town except for the Tick Tock, and that's not for the faint of heart either.
College Junior 2013-12-10T09:56:40Z
Our gym has everything I've ever wanted access to. Plus we have a sweet rock wall.
College Junior 2013-12-10T09:55:53Z
People write songs about our north country winters. I love it, but it's not for the faint of heart.
College Junior 2013-12-10T09:55:09Z
Getting a permit is annoying but you can sometimes get away without it if you live in a smaller dorm.
College Junior 2013-12-10T09:54:16Z
The library computer labs nearly always have availability.

Health & Safety:
I have never once felt unsafe on campus. Our security blotter usually talks about campus security getting sass from drunk kids. Never a huge deal.
College Junior 2013-12-10T09:51:42Z
Campus Safety runs shuttles to the airports and they're super cheap. There are also buses to bigger cities, but I've never had reason to take one. Other than that, there is ZERO transportation up there.
College Junior 2013-12-10T09:49:55Z
Canton, NY is tiny. Let's be honest. If you're a city kid, this is not the school for you. However, if you love quiet towns and easy access to both Canada, the Adirondack Mountains, and places to explore the great outdoors, then this location is perfect.
College Freshman 2013-10-13T16:12:37Z
Our college is huge in their sports and varsity teams. We have one of the best riding and hockey teams in the nation. There is plenty of school spirit and support at each event.
College Freshman 2013-10-13T16:10:57Z
Drugs aren't big here but you do occasionally meet people that do.
College Sophomore 2013-10-10T00:21:09Z
The food is absolutely horrible. It is impossible to find something to eat. I would never eat at the school if i didn't have to. The chicken tastes like 20 year old rubber. Avoid at all costs.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T15:03:13Z
It is very cold and snowy from the months of November to April. Although it is cold the campus is close and all the buildings are always heated. The snow is always managed so it is safe to walk around and class is never canceled.

While being in the middle of a distant farm land area St. Lawrence's campus has a lot to offer. The gym and athletic facilities are amazing and many of the student body are athletic. The classrooms are small and personal and provide a chance to learn and interact with peers. The student center is always busy with smiles and providing a place to study and eat!
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T14:58:04Z
The nightlife at St. Lawrence has a little bit of everything for all types of people. There are a few bars and dance places, but there is also the Java Barn which hosts jam bands and provides a great place to dance and relax. The senior townhouses and some theme houses provide good and safe parties. There isn't much of a reason or want to ever leave campus because it is pretty much all there for you.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T14:55:03Z
At St. Lawrence University every program is small and personal so you get to know your major, professors, and peers. All of those components make each major special and unique to you.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T14:53:05Z
Once you choose a major its really easy to declare, and once you declare you pick a new advisor who is specific to the major and helps you throughout the whole process.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T14:49:07Z
There are a lot of great majors at St. Lawrence and the professors who head the majors really help students develop knowledge, interest, and experience. The surrounding town of Canton serves great opportunities to enrich the experiences and internships that go along with ones major. Also, the excellent study abroad programs at the school serve as an enriching component to give you the best diverse knowledge with your major.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T14:43:30Z
There are so many internship opportunities as well as opportunities to work close with professors to really get into your major. St. Lawrence also provides a lot of excellent study abroad programs that enrich your mind and major. Canton is a small town but has a lot to offer for students to spend time within the town and honing in on their interest while also gaining experiences.

Greek life isn't huge at SLU. It doesn't determine your social life if you are in a frat or sorority. Greek life has a lot of formals but otherwise its just another group of people on campus with a common interest.

There are financial services and financial aid offices on campus and they are notable for their quality. I personally received a merit-based scholarship for 28 hundred dollars and it is renewable! I was pleased, it helped that I applied for early acceptance and went for an interview before applying. Make it clear in your interview that you are interested in receiving a scholarship. On campus, you can apply for scholarships for just about everything under the sun. 85 PERCENT of all SLU students attend the school with some sort of financial aid!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
