3 College Sophomore

Administration: The strictness policy varies for different things. Attendance really depends on each professor's policy. Some professors take attendance each class and others never keep track. Campus security is really strict about open containers on campus which is not a huge deal. Parking is really awful. There is always a person on duty in the garage and they have no leniency, even if you just forgot your ID but still have your parking pass.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a $10,000 scholarship and a grant both of the years I was at SLU for my undergrad. I am still in the process of receiving financial aid for graduate school and am hoping to get a scholarship again. I turned in my FAFSA and the school decided the rest. It can be a frustrating process, but SLU really tries to help out their students. However, the tuition is still outrageous and I will have a ton of loans to pay off when I graduate.

Campus Food: Similar to most colleges, a lot of the food available to students is unhealthy. The few healthy options that are available get old really quickly. Also, everything is really overpriced so flex dollars run out before the end of the semester. The bean has decent coffee though and they are open late.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in the Village Apartments at Saint Louis University is great! Everyone has their own bedroom and each apartment has a washer and dryer. They are located close to classes but also close to great places off-campus. I would definitely recommend choosing this housing option to prospective students.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: its lower cost to live at home.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: here we are a few blocks from central west end and south grand dining which is good. if you have a car...

3 College Senior

Party Scene: as a commuter and a full time owner, I have no time to attend such parties. so I assume it's fine.

3 College Senior

Administration: the protests and demonstrations happened in the midst of midterms. causing much disruptions to students.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: FAFSA is a pain and the school couldn't get me the aid i need.

2 College Senior

Campus Food: its not healthy, its not farm to table. and its expensive.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: Bathrooms that are not cleaned daily are disgusting when shared by 60 other girls.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There aren't many parties like you would imagine in college. Since Greek life isn't that big here, there aren't huge frat parties to go to.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wish I would have received more money. I also wish there were more on campus scholarships that I could apply for.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I like that there are so many options. The only thing I don't like is that there are not a lot of options on the weekends.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to go because you are in the city but the cost is also a lot more expensive for that same reason.

3 College Senior

Administration: The RA's are strict when it comes to noise and drinking. If you get caught you will get written up

3 College Senior

Party Scene: There is really not much to do if you are under 21. The RAs are strict all around campus and you dont want to get written up.

Campus Housing: The housing process is really difficult especially if you are a underclassmen. If you are a upperclassmen there is no guarentee that you will get the housing you want.

2 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I know little about it. My impression is the public line is, "we do great things for people." Privately it's a lot of disturbing and ridiculous rituals and over the top drinking.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Fill out the forms correctly.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: It's very difficult, a huge workload, lots of stress.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I live away from campus.

2 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Not much diversity on this campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
