Saint Louis University is centered around exceptional values such as diversity and acceptance. Unfortunately I will be a senior at the university this upcoming semester. This is unfortunate because attending SLU has shaped me into the strong, open-minded and independent person I am today and will continue to be in the future. Reasons to love SLU: even as a freshman student, you will feel welcomed; all races and religions are accepted, by both the university and all of its members; the campus is located in a hotspot location in St. Louis; the campus is not only safe but also beautiful and the people who take care of it will take care of you; everyone cares for each other and make it known that SLU is more of a family than a college. Saint Louis University will always be a part of me and I will carry the knowledge I was able to obtain over the four years with me everywhere I go in life.

Saint Louis University is very welcoming. Every student and professor there welcomes new people with open arms. Every person at SLU loves where they live and where they work, so it makes for an overall good experience. If I had the chance to choose another school I would not, because this school really cares about who you are as a person and what you plan to do after college with your degree. The people here want to see the best person you can be, and every professor helps you and motivates you in any way they can.
