    SLU community is amazing

    I liked everything about this university. The people, the students, the teachers, the staff members, everybody makes you feel at home. This place is unique and everything is made for students to success, while studying at SLU and even after graduating. Best school in the world for sure.

    Vibrant and close knit community

    Best if you like rural setting and rigorous academics. Exposed to various backgrounds both US and international. If you’re looking for a small college with great attention from faculty then this is one of the best options available. Generous financial aid (for both domestic and international) alongside one of the best study abroad programmes( almost 60%)!

    Alumni connections

    When I started looking at different colleges and Universities to attend, I found myself asking a very important question. What kind of place do I want to be in during the most important 4 years of transition in my life? The best thing about SLU is that it really allowed me to discover myself and helped put me on the right track to becoming the man I hope to be one day. There’s a lot of good schools around the world the offer high level of education but a great schools does that while also teaching you about the things in life that you can’t ever learn in the classroom. The St. Lawrence University community is one like no other. Canton is not New York City but being located in the middle of nowhere helps you build amazing connections with students and professors like no other. Alumni’s are very engaging and are always trying to help you build your career. SLU is not perfect but regardless of any hardships you might find yourself going through, the hardest one each year will always be saying goodbye to your SLU family in May.

    People

    St. Lawrence university is a small liberal arts college that emphasizes the importance of networking, maintaining long-lasting friendships and appreciate the surrounding and stunning nature up north. From the very first day, SLU encourages students to use every available resource on campus as well as expanding your network and friendship beyond your own friend group. Moreover, SLU’s unique location attracts students to learn from the outdoors such as hanging out and kayaking on the st Lawrence river, hiking, and skiing and camping out, especially on the Adirondacks.

    Great Small School

    I am currently going into my sophomore year at St. Lawrence, and I love it. Great campus, programs, and people. It gets cold every now and then, but you will have enough distractions to focus on. Being a small university, the sense of community is like none other, and you always have someone in your corner. Professors want to see you succeed, not fail, and the connections and friendships you make will last for life.

    Inclusivity

    St. Lawrence is an amazing school with incredible people. The faculty and staff make everyone feel as if they are included and they are at home. The school helps everyone meet amazing friends and really feel included on campus.

    Hardworking, kind, welcoming student body

    I am a Sophomore at St. Lawrence and I first fell in love with SLU the minute I stepped on campus for my accepted students day. The campus is full of amazing people, both students and faculty, who want you to be successful and will help in any way they can. We might be in the middle on nowhere but it’s a very special somewhere!

    Close community in the middle of the woods

    The first reason why I chose St. Lawrence University is because of the student to teacher ratio which is 11:1. It is amazing to be taught in a class which often has less than 20 students. This allows students to get better help from Professors before/during/after class.
    If you are an international student or went to United World College (such as me), the University often offers very good scholarships and help you integrate the University.
    If you like the outdoors, St. Lawrence University is perfect for you. The university is located in Northern New York and offers lots of different trips. As well, the ski mountain White Face is only 2 hours away by car.
    The alumni network of St.Lawrence University is the 3rd best in the United States which is a great benefit for career prospects, for example, lots of economics and business majors are hired by alumni after graduation.
    Also, the variety of semester abroad that the University offers is great and I personally only heard praises from returning students.

    You're Better Off Somewhere Else Unless You Really Need Financial Aid

    The best thing I can say about this university is that it has a strong alumni network which everyone is able to take advantage of and learn so much from. I’ve been able to use the network well for personal development and international networking, but I believe that this network is most useful for American students. Another great thing is the amount of financial aid you are able to receive from the university. There are plenty of grants and scholarships which you can apply for which allow you to study abroad, take part in unpaid internships, and to carry out research of your own. You are also able to work closely with faculty, often forming close bonds with them which will then become beneficial when applying for grants and jobs. Besides this, there is not much praise I have for this university.

    As an international student, I found many problems with the school. I once had points deducted from my grade for spelling with British English instead of American English, without being told that the use of American English was a rubric criterion. When I approached the professor about this (after hearing stories about linguistic discrimination from other professors), I was told that I have to spell the American way because I was now in America. Honestly shocking for a University that claims to celebrate diversity and be welcoming of others.

    I’ve also witnessed situations of discrimination when international students and students of colour have tried to run for Chair positions in student organisations, only to be told that they are “overqualified” but somehow are suitable for a Secretary position. This is not the best place for international students and students of colour who want to thrive through student organisations.

    The school also seems to have a problem with managing money as, throughout my three years at the university, I’ve only witnessed budget cuts in every department. It has gotten to the point where there are hardly any classes to take as there’s been a dramatic reduction in faculty, leaving Seniors scrambling to find classes that they can actually take, especially since they are blocked from taking most introductory classes.

    Finally, the location of the school is not great for anyone who wants to be able to get around easily. It is situated in the middle of nowhere in Upstate NY and to get around, your best bet is to have a car or be friends with someone who is willing to drive you somewhere. Transportation gets even worse during the winter when the place is constantly covered in ice and snow and cars break down due to below freezing temperatures.

    I’m sure this school is great if you are American, white, and from the New England area. But as someone who is not American at all, I would suggest going elsewhere unless you really need a good financial aid deal.
