    Coming back to school as a mature student was a really big transition for me, and at times it was overwhelming.  The faculty go above and beyond for their students, and that was what made the difference in my post-secondary education. Creating close connections with your professors can make achieving your goals much more attainable. St. Lawrence College opened doors for me and guided me in the direction I lead today. The successes I experience in my career everyday are a constant reminder of how thankful I am to have attended a school with such a strong community, and passion for helping their students succeed.
