Honestly, If you want a REAL college experience, don't come to St. Lawrence. Not only is this school in the middle of absolutely no where, but there is no social life. The social life consists of drinking in dorms and then security just comes in and ruins it- even if you are 21. The school has taken away the entire greek system basically, theres never anything to do. No school spirit, oh and it's bitter cold- in October. Don't even bother leaving campus because theres just acres of land and cows. Also, if you know what you want to major in, DO NOT come here. This is a liberal arts school and all the professors are crazy. They base everything around a liberal education. You waste time you first year with what they like to call
a first year program
where you are forced to do community service and waste some more time.

The nearest form of civilzation is Syracuse and thats a 31/2 hour drive. its hard to find even a good resturant or anything around here.

St. Lawrence University sucks, the weather is also incredibly depressing- the sun shines hardly EVER and its always freezing. The administration has succeed in ruining the social life here so there's never anything fun to do. Not to mention this school is overpriced- don't waste your time on an application and visiting this school, its in the middle of no where.

responseSo wait, you are basically looking for a college that is going to give you an option to get some drugs, to get drunk, to eat in good restaurants? College is not even close to that, you are going to college and not to some princess school or whatever. Faculty is not crazy at all, they are all very friendly and help you. There are teachers that are harsh but it comes to you like that everywhere! Weather, I do not have any problems with weather and I come from a country that is way warmer than Canton. If you have friends and cool people you can actually spend 4 years here with no problem. There is no way to get bored, there are so many activities, job opportunities, internships, we even have our own cinema! SO I can also see that what you have been looking for are big towns, shopping etc. NO! College like SLU that is liberal arts is about building a community that stays bonded after 4 years here. But you seem to be lazy, you want everything served, easy access to everything, easy grades etc etc. think a bit and try to get a life. And yeah, so bad you got busted drinking, that is so bad about slu. Greek life was removed for a reason, coz too many people used drugs, everything happens for a reason, believe me.
commentYou never went to Ottawa? that's only an hour away!
