Each year, the St. Lawrence College Board of Governors elects an internal Student Governor. In keeping with the college’s past practice of rotating campus representation, the internal student governor will be drawn annually from a qualified pool of nominees and elected by all full-time St. Lawrence students from the respective campus. This process is managed by the Office of the President.

The 2017/18 St. Lawrence College Internal Student Governor elected for the one-year term commencing September 1, 2017 is Gregory Ridge. Gregory's bio is outlined below.
