The Lawrencian Chronicle

The Lawrencian Chronicle is our department's newsletter, our annual collection of news from faculty, current students, and  alumni. Our choice of title reflects our location as well as honors the Slavic tradition of the Laurentian Codex, one of the oldest surviving manuscripts from medieval Russia containing the Tale of Bygone Years.

We encourage all alumni to send in updates as to your activities for us to share with your former classmates. It's easy to do with our new website's online contact form.
