Each first-year student participates in St. Lawrence University's innovative First-Year Program - one of the oldest living-learning programs in the country - helping students make successful transitions from high school to college.
Students live together 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.
The students are Margaret A. Chandler of Dorset, Jessica M. Dorr of Manchester Center, and Francis G. Miles of Manchester. Chandler and Dorr graduated from Burr and Burton Academy while Miles graduated from Holderness School.
Some 634 first-year students from 30 U. S. states, including a record 72 international students, have joined the St. Lawrence student body.
Founded in 1856, St. Lawrence University is a private, independent liberal arts institution of about 2,400 students.
