At St. Lawrence College, we are committed to our vision of Students First. We understand that each individual has unique needs and you may have potential barriers keeping you from pursuing post-secondary education. The STRIVE program works in three areas to support students pursing post-secondary education: Outreach, Transition and Retention.

Through a new funding initiative, we are enhancing our outreach services to make college a viable option for individuals who may not have considered post-secondary education. If you are a student who identifies with having barriers to achieving success, the STRIVE program is here for YOU!

What we currently offer on campus to support our students:
- Assistance in accessing and connecting to college services and resources
- A safe environment to discuss issues important to students
- Support with the transition to college life
- One-on-one academic and career advisement
- And much more!

How do you become part of our STRIVE Community?

Well it is very simple! We are a self-identification program and there are a few ways to let us know!
