The St. Lawrence University Adirondack Semester
Johnson, Baylor; Alexander, Steve
Liberal Education, v95 n3 p44-49 Sum 2009
This article features St. Lawrence University's Adirondack Semester, a small program, with enrollment limited to twelve students. The participants of the program are composed of a small group of students with shared interests and serious purpose, living harmoniously and mostly free from the temptations and distractions of the larger world, learning from senior scholars at the same time that they tutor one another. Though the courses reinforce one another, experience itself unites the elements of the program. The most important part of that experience is living in a small, close-knit community with a materially simple lifestyle that is in close contact with nature. The authors describe the effects of the program and how it brings students close to nature.
