It depends upon what you're looking for. There are no houses for fraternities and sororities. However, they do live in community in dorms and off campus apartments. Greeks enjoy going out, but during the week, things are pretty tame. Overall, Greek life is tame, most are focused on academics and partying is not as big or as comparable to Greek partying at public universities. Greeks do a great deal of service, and have fun events. There are very cool venues around the Saint Louis area, in midtown, and downtown!

The Jesuit values shine through. Service and being for others is an important characteristic of the school that distinguishes it. Most students are inclusive of diversity and are tolerant and the professors, althiugh not as liberal or diverse, tend to be accepting as well. Academics are acceptable, being best for premed or nursing, business, and aviation. Physics is a small part and is limited, but what is offered is fair. Work load is not extremely demanding, but it's not the easiest either. As for extras, there are plenty of ways for students to be involved in clubs or competitions.

I'm not deeply involved in student life. I live off campus now to save money and volunteer at hospitals not associated with the school because they have minimum requirements, but I love the campus and many of the teachers and staff! The staff is always willing to help you, they push you to not only know the answers but to understand and apply the concepts as well, and the school tries to give you a great well rounded education throughout your undergrad.
