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.
The campus is truly beautiful as well as the chapel. Some people worry about the fact that the University is in Saint Louis, but SLU has impressive security. A great place to stay close to your faith and grow.
SLU is accepting and inviting to those who show interest. It has a great atmoshere and I am so excited to be able to experience the student life here.
