Caring for Campus and Community

We must be faithful stewards of our campus infrastructure and its environment. Some spaces require modernization; others require preservation. We must sustain a campus that encourages innovative learning but continues to reflect St. Lawrence traditions and values, including protecting the land and natural resources around us. 

The Campaign for Every Laurentian recognizes campus stewardship as a top fundraising priority in order to preserve, maintain, and protect St. Lawrence’s historic yet sustainable campus. From enhancing and expanding Appleton Arena to modernizing our residence halls, we call on Every Laurentian to help us preserve our campus while moving it ever forward.

Academic Learning Spaces

Support for Teaching and Learning

Student learning styles are constantly evolving, requiring teaching techniques and learning spaces to adapt. Today, classroom renovations take place one-by-one, year-by-year, often depending on the size of the annual capital fund and grant dollars that have been secured. We will invest in the renewal, renovation, and adaptation of physical space needs for teaching, learning, and campus life.

Campus Stewardship Requires Taking Care of Our Facilities

Laurentians may not realize nearly half of St. Lawrence’s campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the St. Lawrence University-Old Campus Historic District.  Commitments from generous alumni and friends have ensured the relevance and sustainability of facilities such as the Richard F. Brush ’52 University Quad, the Abbott-Young Memorial Beta Temple, Gunnison Memorial Chapel, and Herring-Cole Hall, for another century.  In order to preserve and protect our historic buildings for succeeding generations of Laurentians, we must act now as St. Lawrence’s assiduous stewards.

Here We Go Saints!

The Campaign for Every Laurentian saw the revitalization of historic Appleton Arena, the home of the Division I Skating Saints, in February of 2020 thanks to a lead gift from Tom Dolan ’74 and the Dolan Family Foundation.  Now, a generous gift from George W. Karpus ’68 has sparked an expansion of Appleton, set to provide enriched experiences for Division III student-athletes.

A Modernized Home Away From Home

Beyond academics, living and learning spaces are one of the most important facets of shaping the St. Lawrence experience. It is essential for today’s students to have living environments that are both safe and comfortable, and are an exciting extension of their decision to attend St. Lawrence.

Enhance Our Infrastructure while emphasizing Sustainability and Accessibility

As opportunities are presented to update and modernize our campus, we must be diligent in our efforts towards being both global partners and inclusive.  In this next chapter, our community must embrace sustainability and accessibility initiatives during capital projects, preparing campus for the next generation of Laurentians.
