3 College Senior

Greek Life: We have both multi-cultural and regular on campus Greek groups. They are all strictly okay.

4 College Senior

Athletics: We're a D-I school and it shows. Everyone here has some degree of Billiken pride and it's lovely. Student, parents, alumni, and faculty/staff come to rally together to cheer on our SLU blue.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: SLU is honestly what you make out of it. They give you the resources to be great, you just have to go out and get it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Because we are in St. Louis, there are always times of uncertainty and concern with safety. However, DPS does its absolute best to keep us safe and protect the grounds. I know I can always call DPS if I feel uncomfortable. I also always have a way to contact campus safety if needed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall classes have been difficult but manageable. The professors show genuine interest in my success if I email them a question. I have definitely had to study more as a student than in high school, but my high school definitely prepared me. Labs are difficult but I kind of enjoy them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I know that SLU's BME program is up and coming, so I know it is not the best program in the nation. However, the professors in this program are unbelievably helpful and engaged. They offer us so many opportunities to do research with them or ways to apply for scholarships. Employers come for fairs every semester, giving us undergraduates a chance to work our connections.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: At saint louis university athletics are not a huge deal despite being division 1.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Saint Louis University is a great socially conscious community dedicated to making the world a better place for everyone everywhere. They really take the Jesuit mission of living for others and with others to heart and the staff is dedicated to help their students advocates for change as well as educating them to do so to the best of their abilities. The teachers are very prepared for class each day and push their students to push themselves to learn about their field of study.

Health & Safety: St. Louis is a city, so obviously if you're a female you should travel in a pair or group. On campus I always feel very safe, and crime never really happens on campus. Most of the crime that has happened to student occurs outside the campus boundaries, and the school always sends out emails of the occurrence and what they're going to do to prevent it in the future. There are always public safety officers on their bikes patrolling campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Academically, my experience has been fantastic. All of my professors really care about their students and are always open for emails, questions, etc. Students also care about their grades and GPA instead of just partying being their top priority. It's not exactly the college experience I was hoping for, though. I am involved in several things on campus, but I'm not an overly social person who likes to go out alone. I was anticipating having more people to go out with/hang out with/party with. My first semester I had a lot more of a social life than my second semester, but the people you hang out with a lot in the first semester aren't always going to stick around for much longer than that. I love the city of St. Louis, but I know once I graduate I won't want to live here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am really unsure because I haven't been to the career center or searched for jobs/internships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Every dorm is very different. I live in Fusz, which is great because it's the one with the largest rooms and a private bathroom. However, I kind of regret not living in Griese because it seems like that's where a lot of the action happens socially. Fusz and Spring are perfectly located for class buildings and Subway/ Jamba Juice/ Qdoba /Grille works. Reinert is really far off campus and a hassle to walk to and from since it's around none of the classrooms.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life here is really nice because it's very inclusive. There's only 6 sororities and 9 fraternities on campus, and if you decide to rush there's a 98% chance you'll become a part of one. The only real way you wouldn't is if you decide not to join one. There's definitely room for a social life and involvement in other clubs/activities when you go Greek, which is nice because it means you can have friends outside of that organization. A lot of people already have in their mind their own stereotypes/perspectives about Greek life before even entering the school, so they assume Greek life here is the same as their presumptions, but many people really don't have an opinion one way or the other toward Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The education that I receive here is good, and the professors are amazing. The only drawback is that there are a lot of native St. Louisians, so there are more communters than I thought there'd be. It makes it a tad difficult to have a social life. I would definitely recommend living in Griesedeck Hall freshman year, because I didn't and I regret it. From what I've heard there's always people around and it's really easy to make friends living there.
