Every Laurentian Shares a Deep, Abiding Connection

Credit the long, dark winters; the small, intimate campus; or, the isolation from big-city distractions, Laurentians tend to agree: “There is something unique about this place!”  The Princeton Review agrees, as it named St. Lawrence’s alumni network No. 3 in the nation in 2018.  That ranking becomes even more material as 97% of recent graduates were either employed or attending graduate school less than one year after Commencement, with many having leaned on a Laurentian connection.

Students need the power of those Laurentian connections today more than ever. Every Laurentian can give them that support by funding internship opportunities and expanding career networking signature programs such as the St. Lawrence University Public Interest Corps (SLU PIC), Laurentians Investing in Networking and Careers (LINC), SLU Connect, Laurentians in Residence, and Sophomore Boot Camp.

Enhance Internship Possibilities

The Power of Connections Will Guarantee More Internships

Over 70% of recent graduates took part in an internship at some point during their undergraduate career. Yet, of those, more than a third did not receive any financial support. We aim to guarantee that every student who seeks an internship opportunity will not only earn one, but will also be provided institutional financial support.

Expand the SLU Connect & LINC Programs

The Power of Connections Goes Beyond Campus

Building meaningful connections that reach beyond campus is one of the premier benefits of becoming a Laurentian.  The SLU Connect and Laurentians Investing in Networking and Careers (LINC) programs help cultivate connections that influence futures.  We intend to grow and sustain them for successive generations of St. Lawrence students.
