3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: SLU is located in the middle of St. Louis, which is very ethnically diverse. Because of this, there are a ton of different dining options right of campus and very close if you have a car. The food ranges from burger joints to Ethiopian food and everything in between! It is a lot of fun and there are always new places to discover. My friends and I like to go out for a nice dinner every once and a while. It is fun to dress up and get good food! But if thats not your thing, there are a ton of places that are cheap and still diverse.

5 College Junior

Majors: SLU has a wide variety of programs and majors that a student can choose from. SLU encourages you to have both a major and a minor, and it is not uncommon for students to have two majors or two minors. Our academic advisors are pretty good at helping you stay on track to complete the degrees that you select for your time at SLU. I am a double major with a minor and so far I haven't had any issues enrolling in classes or stressing about completing anything. I believe that I am going to finish it all on time just fine! Bonus: We also have a campus in Madrid, Spain which has all SLU classes so everything transfers without hiccups! It is a super easy process which allows students from any major (from pre-med, to engineers, to political science) to get to experience another culture for a semester!

4 College Junior

Majors: I am currently studying Political Science with a minor in Spanish and I love my programs. I have had great Poli Sci classes so far, and there are a ton more that I want to take! Unfortunately I don't think I will have time to take everything that I want to, but thats ok. The selection is excellent. With my major, I have been able to study abroad at our campus in Madrid, Spain for a semester and have all my credits transfer, keeping me on track. I have also had the opportunity to count an internship on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC for credit towards my major. These are both great opportunities that have contributed greatly to my life and shaping my views and it's great that I'm not set back by either, but actually get to include them into my studies.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Pretty much there aren't a ton of rules at SLU, but the ones that are in place are important and you are expected to keep them. I like this environment because it allows you the freedoms of being an adult, while also encouraging you to make wise decisions. For example, we are a wet campus. You are allowed to drink if you are 21, which is the law, so why should it be different at school? However, if you are under 21 and you get caught drinking, it isn't something that just gets blown over.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: We have more off-campus housing than on-campus housing. Our on-campus housing is very good, but usually only freshmen and sophomores live there. Upperclassmen usually live in the apartments located right off campus. There are literally dozens of apartment complexes to chose from surrounding all four sides of campus, so finding housing is easy and convenient. The pricing is generally about the same as on-campus. Most complexes are very close to campus, so they are safe.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: SLU takes good care of its students, and does everything in its power to make sure we are safe and educated against things that may potentially harm us. We have tons of programs that promote wise decision making, and a great support system put into place incase something does unfortunately go wrong or happen to a student. There are always DPS officers around and they are very kind. As a girl, it is reassuring to have them so present on campus, especially late at night. I really appreciate how they will offer to walk you back to your dorm if you are alone and it is dark out. The campus is also equipped with blue light stations all over campus for emergencies. I feel safe on campus.

4 College Junior

Facilities: SLU is located right in the heart of St. Louis, which gives students a variety of opportunities to explore, have fun, and also be involved and give back to the community around us. We focus heavily on community service and we are always encouraged to be involved in the world, making a positive difference! We have a great social scene on campus with over 60 different student organizations! This guarantees there is something for everyone to be involved in, and if there is something that you want and is not offered, it is relatively easy to start an organization of your own! I have a few friends who have done this and were very successful. Our campus is beautiful and allows for a great college experience, because sometimes, looks do matter.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I love the student life on SLU's campus! We have a great selection of over 60 student organizations that allow everyone to get involved in something that they are truly interested in. Not only are there a variety of organizations to be involved in, but our facilities are wonderful for meetings and events that all of our organizations get to use! We have a massive athletic center (made to ensure that our athletes and our students are NCAA ready!) that has great hours to accommodate any schedule. There are also classes you can enroll in that are a lot of fun if you would like something more structured.

4 College Junior

Diversity: At SLU we focus on being inclusive. This covers race, ethnicity, economic background, political beliefs, religious beliefs, and sexual orientation. This is one of my favorite qualities of SLU. Not only is there diversity represented on campus, but we have an atmosphere of not just including, but also learning about and partaking in the differences around us. This creates a unique community experience that is hard to find anywhere else.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am not sure what I want to do for a major right now.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Saint Louis University is a great school! It's definitely worth at least a visit to our beautiful campus.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: This could definitely use some improvement. There seems to be a lot of white and asian students and not enough of other races.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security is very good. Many of them are retired police officers. Health wise, SLU Care is really good. The doctors there are well trained and are extremely helpful.

Although name recognition grows each year, SLU is hidden gem in the world of higher education. With a well-respected academic reputation, a vibrant student life, and a strong community, SLU offers students hundreds of options that all equate to one outcome—an amazing college experience. After four years at SLU, students leave as well-rounded "men and women for others" prepared to embark on the first years of their post-college adult lives. SLU will not just prepare you for a job. The faculty and staff will challenge you to develop your personality, faith, and knowledge so that you have the tools for success in every realm of life. Whether SLU students choose graduate school, volunteer work, or employment, the vast majority of students are happy with their placement after graduation.

Students tend to say they knew SLU was their school when they visited campus. Spend a few hours here, and you'll be impressed by the landscaping and architecture, excited about the academic and extracurricular options, enticed by city living, and in love with the SLU community. SLU is a university dedicated to service and educating the whole person, and students leave savoring the experience and wishing it would never end.
