  • Founded in April 3, 1856 by leaders of the Universalist Church, a progressive Christian denomination.
  • Oldest continuously coeducational institutionof higher learning in New York State.
  • Considerable growth in enrollment led to expansion of physical plant following World War II
  • First international study program inaugurated in 1964.


A St. Lawrence education is at once empathetic, ethical, and intellectual, which begins with an openness of mind and spirit to difference in traditions and ideas. We value diversity for its own sake and also because it gives us stronger processes of truth seeking.  We must be willing to face difficulty and discomfort in the search for ideas. We oppose the unjust silencing of any voice.


Experiential learning in its many forms is a vital component of a St. Lawrence education, linking academic work with practical skills development while in school and enriching academic, civic, and professional lives after graduation.


Career Services is committed to empowering students and graduates to develop their sense of purpose through formal study and active engagement beyond the classroom. We work to establish a network of support to help students navigate their own development with confidence as they explore career options, advance their personal brand, expand their experiences and thrive in a dynamic world.

Student Life

Campus life

St. Lawrence University requires all undergraduate students to reside on-campus for the whole of their University experience. This requirement is predicated upon the belief that over the course of four years, students benefit progressively from a residential curriculum in a number of ways. They learn to live with a diversity of students and to value the unique contributions of community members. Students develop and utilize leadership skills, allowing them to have a positive impact on their residential communities. They also develop life skills which will benefit them throughout their lives - including communication, assertiveness, prioritization and time management skills.

The Varsity Strength and Conditioning Room will be open to varsity student-athletes from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Coaches may sign their teams up for use from 6-9 a.m. and 2-10 p.m. by contacting Jared Hatz.
