Page Background

ten speakers—faculty, students and alumni—were selected to present talks at the first

TEDxStLawrenceU titled “In Pursuit of Harmony,” on November 12, 2016, in Peterson-Kermani Hall.

The newly formed TEDxSt.LawrenceU student club has begun organizing for a second event in 2017.

Every St. Lawrence student is expected to acquire

speaking skills. At St. Lawrence it is not enough to

write well; St. Lawrence students must also learn

to speak well and express their ideas clearly and

confidently in front of groups. We build rhetoric skills

into every aspect of our curriculum. The result is that

our history majors and our math and science majors

graduate with superior rhetorical skills just as do our

philosophy, English and government majors.

This is a unique distinction.
