Approximately 710 students enrolled at St. Lawrence this fall, including 69 of whom represent 24 countries around the world. Fifty-seven percent of St. Lawrence students come from outside of New York State, and 46 percent graduated in the top-10 percent of their high school class. More than 90 percent participated in athletics in high school, 75 percent volunteered or were involved with community service or volunteer work, and 38 percent participated in the arts.

Each first-year student at St. Lawrence University participates in its nationally-recognized First-Year Program, one of the oldest living-learning programs in the country. The FYP helps students make successful transitions from high school to college. Students live together as a cohort and are taught by faculty teams, developing the writing, speaking and research skills needed for college. Students continue to develop these skills in a spring First-Year Seminar.

Fall semester classes began on Aug. 30.
