    Testimonials

    What I enjoy most about St. Lawrence College are the small class sizes. The students are able to receive lots of individual attention from instructors. They seem to really care about each student's success and offer constructive criticism to help us reach our potential. The most exciting college experience was exhibiting my work at the Marianne can Silfhout Gallery in the Creative Explorations Show.
