Health & Safety: Stay smart, stay alert. You see DPS all over the place and it is comforting. I never felt threatened while on campus. Cupple's House is creepy at night but that's a result of over-caffeination.

Greek Life: Greeks are a clique, but they're less 'non-Greek' discriminatory if you're a girl. Guys should think about joining if you want to be able to go to events. Or date a Greek girl..?

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Great Rec center, basketball games are fun and enthusiastic.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: SLU is growing every year. The food has improved substantially, the dorms are manageable (with brand new ones being built all over) and STL is a great city to do free stuff.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety is somewhat an issue, just because we are in a big city. You just have to be careful walking alone at night.

Campus Housing: The dorms here are pretty terrible for the price we are paying. Luckily, there are new buildings being built.

Greek Life: I love my sorority! I wish we had houses on campus, though.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Basketball is really the only sport that everyone goes out and watches. I wish we had a football team.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall SLU is a good school. There is a large emphasis put on pre-med, and not many options are talked about other than the traditional path. Housing is not so great right now, but it is improving.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like SLU. I think there is a lot offered to study. The class sizes are not that large, and if it is a lecture like class, there is usually another discussion or lab type component class that goes with it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think its important to start networking and getting to know your professors so that they can write you letters of recommendation if you need them. There is a career fair every year, and each semester is some career week that offers times to go in and have your resume looked at and such.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, even at night time and if I'm alone. If you are smart about it, you should be okay. There has been some issues on campus and around it but I've never felt unsafe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It depends on where you live, depends on the quality of your housing. But the community is great, and they aren't awful. I like living on campus. I lived in Walsh dorm freshman year and while the bathrooms stink, it was okay. Cost is a little rough, and the housing process can be a pain. I know they are opening and building and updating housing a lot so my review may soon become less relevant

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: GO BILLS! School spirit is a huge thing and cheering on our teams is important!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love it at SLU! There's so much to get involved in. Everyone is nice and welcoming, and I love the community!!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is great! I love my friends, the opportunities to do service, the gym, the library, and the food. However, I wish the tuition wasn't so great a burden on my family and I and that the financial services staff were easier to work with and understood my family's situation a little better.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have no doubt I am going to be able to find a job in my desired field upon graduation. I feel this is partially due to my education I received from my school but also from the hard work I put in to making myself well prepared for the workforce. The value of a degree from this school is what you make it. If you slack off and don't get internship then you're not going to be able to find a job. If you work hard and have internships and extracurricular activities on your resume then you should be able to find a job fairly easily.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Sometimes bad things happen on or around campus, but I think the school handles the issues well and does everything they can to prevent instances like these from happening again.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved my learning community experience, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. However, I feel that housing is one area of the cost of SLU that is not great. I think the housing cost was a little high given my dorm room. Another positive is that laundry is free, and that's great!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I go to the gym fairly often. There are a lot of amenities and machines to use. The only downside is the poor gym hours on the weekends.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is great! I have made some really good friends, the education is solid, and the food is pretty good. However, it is way too expensive!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not a problem on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The res houses are old but new ones are currently being built.

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.
