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.

College Senior

Greek Life: I am not in greek life and would prefer not to answer this

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus so I wouldnt know how to answer this

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.

College Senior

Scholarships: I didnt apply for any scholarships there fore I have no answer

3 College Senior

Campus Food: There are more options than before but the prices are inflated a lot.

2 College Senior

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.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Excellent in my area but very difficult.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I live away from campus.

2 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Not much diversity on this campus.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus and have no knowledge of conditions.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Fresh Gatherings is best option.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not that large. There is definitely a presence but it is not overwhelming

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments are lining campus but they are usually to expensive and it is easier to live on campus

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many options that literally line the edge of the campus. There is an apartment complex for everyone.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The few places that I go to a decent quality but they are all just chain restaurants, and there are very few of these restaurants close by for being in downtown STL.

2 College Freshman

Administration: There's a strong sense in the community currently that the administration has lost touch with what students and alumni want for the university. This stems from the Ferguson protests that occurred on campus in October.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The tuition and total cost here is very expensive, but through scholarships I think I am paying very close to what I would have payed if I went to a school with half the tuition cost.

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.

SLU is a university dedicated to service and educating the whole person, and students leave savoring the experience and wishing it would never end.
