Founded by Jesuits in 1818, Saint Louis University is a private research institution and one of the oldest Catholic universities in the United States. SLU is home to 11 colleges and schools conferring undergraduate and graduate degrees. For students who wish to learn in another culture, SLU features a study abroad experience at the university’s international campus in Madrid. Outside of the classroom, Saint Louis fields 16 men’s and women’s athletic teams and the mascot of SLU is the Billiken, a mythical symbol of good luck.
overall i am really enjoying life in college. the university has equally blended the rigor of academics with love for serving the greater good of the world. i am really glad i chose to go to slu.
