Jacqui Colt graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2015 with a major in English (creative writing focus). She spent much of her time at St Lawrence discovering and learning as much as possible about the Adirondacks. She remained in the area for two North Country summers and spent a semester in an Adirondack yurt village.
“The region feels more like home than ever,” Colt said at the end of her junior year. “It only felt right, after years of hiking, paddling, and otherwise physically investigating the region, to explore the Adirondacks academically.”
Colt received a SLU Fellowship, funded by the Daniel F. ’65 and Ann H. Sullivan Endowment for Student/Faculty Research University Fellowship and the Betty Buchanan Dunn ’53 University Fellowship, and thus was able to spend the summer of 2014 learning about Adirondack literature and contributing to the Adirondack Bibliography project.
