    CANTON, NY —  St. Lawrence University enrolled more than 640 new students this fall, including 625 members of the Class of 2025 and 17 transfer students. St. Lawrence welcomes:

    Nolan C. Delehey of Camden as a member of the Class of 2025. Delehey attended Camden Hills Regional High School.

    Kaitlin M. Heintzman of Hope as a member of the Class of 2025. Heintzman attended Camden Hills Regional High School.

    Andrew K. Orne of Camden as a member of the Class of 2025. Orne attended Camden Hills Regional High School.

    Members of the Class of 2025 hail from 438 high schools worldwide. First-year students come to the North Country from 29 states, Washington, D.C., and 33 countries, while transfer students represent 21 colleges, 12 states, Washington D.C., and Jamaica. Similar to recent incoming classes, international students represent 10 percent of the class and self-identified students of color represent 13 percent of first-year students. Nearly 17 percent of the class are considered first-generation students-students whose parents did not complete a four-year college or university degree, and 15 percent have an immediate family member or relative who attends or attended St. Lawrence.

    At St. Lawrence, each first-year student participates in the University's nationally-recognized First-Year Program (FYP), 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 to be successful in college and beyond. Students continue to hone these skills in a spring First-Year Seminar.
