With Laurentians seeking information on our engagement and fundraising programs during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing this webpage to help with quick access to answers. We will work to keep this page updated as additional decisions are made.
Following the release of New York State guidelines for reopening colleges and universities, St. Lawrence University has shared its guidelines and plans for the 2020-21 academic year on our Always Forward: Returning to St. Lawrence webpage.
Those Reunion milestones and affinities affected by the cancellation of Reunion Weekend 2020 will be invited to participate alongside Reunion milestones in 2021. The new dates for Reunion Weekend are July 15 - 18, 2021. More information will be forthcoming.
The University has transitioned all on-campus events (i.e. Homecoming Weekend) to virtual offerings for the fall semester. Options for fall off-campus events and gatherings are being considered. More information will be forthcoming.
Every Laurentian is invited to take advantage of virtual engagement options including “Laurentian Connection,” the Laurentian Book Club, helpful webinars and more! Find additional information about these and other programs that are allowing Laurentians to engage with the University and each other virtually by clicking the link below.
Exciting news! Thanks to the generosity of over 400 Laurentians, over $100,000 was given to the Emergency Student Assistance Fund. With current student need from COVID-19 met through this effort, should you be interested in supporting our students, consider a gift towards another very important need: scholarships.
