    Testimonials

    I came to St. Lawrence College as a mature student. With over 30 years work experience and a university degree, I had no previous experience of college and simply did not know what to expect. To my delight, I found that an atmosphere of enthusiasm, mutual support and hope for a better future energized the entire campus. Completing the Autism and Behavioural Science program, and then beginning to work in this field, has changed my life profoundly. In only two semesters at St. Lawrence, I saw such transformative experiences happening all around me.
