SLU offers challenging courses, a huge variety of clubs and activities, and friendly professors who want to get involved with your education.

Sophie from Chazy, NY
SLU is a wonderfully supportive campus, fostering connections between students and professors alike. I have always found a helpful hand to turn to, whether it be for personal matters or issues regarding my major. The campus is one of the most beautiful, and opportunities to explore abound, as we live right in the heart of the Adirondack region.
Alexis from Sanbornville, NH
slu is a place to explore your inner self, the beautiful nature that around you, and provides comfort and a sense of security because of the culture and the growing diversity on campus. slu provides students opportunities to be extremely selfless and competitive, while maintaining one's humility. slu gave me the chance to find my gift and it can do the same for you.

St. Lawrence University is school for the serious student. It has a 12:1 Faculty to Student Ratio, which insures each student receives personal attention. At SLU, we value nature, academics, and diplomacy as a university that is in the heart of the Adirondacks, a top ranked Liberal Arts School, and the closest University to the Canadian Border.
