What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Apply as early as possible and definitely apply for the presidential scholarship at www.slu.edu. Click on the scholarship link and I think you can find it.
Go visit the college. Never decide on any college before you visit it. I completely love it and I believe you will too, but I could be wrong, it might not be the right fit for you.
I didn't have anyone from my high school come to SLU and I have made great new friends so don't feel as though the college is too big for you.
Talk to your financial aid counselor. This is true for where ever you go. You always want to get the exact numbers on how much it will cost and how much aid you will get.

There are thousands of universities in the United States and worldwide; don't be bound to colleges and universities that your parents want you to go to. Make sure that the school that you choose is right for you. Before you decide to visit 50 schools before senior year, take time to carefully look at each and rate your preferences or desires you hope to find in a school. This will help eliminate some stress of applying as you have narrowed your choices from 50 to 5 or 10. Talk with students on every campus you decide to apply to. I didn't do this, but I know now talking with prospective students that it can be incredibly valuable since they don't have a vested monetary interest when talking with you like an admissions office will. While it is by no means necessary, narrowing down a few possible areas of study will drastically reduce the amount of stress with both applying to and ultimately choosing a school.
Kevin from Waukesha, WI
If you are thinking about coming to SLU just realize that this school is not all party. It takes a lot of work and dedication and you will get out of it what you put into it. It will be very worth your while to go here!
Juliana from Joliet, IL
My tips for prospective students includes going on the campus tour. It is here where you see first hand all the amenities with an actual student as your tour guide. Also, attending the SLU orientation is very helpful because you attend all types of seminars and meet with advisors to help you pick classes.
Melinda from Ellisville, MO
Go see the campus. Also deposit your enrollment fee at least kind of early if you want to go to one of the early SLU 101s.
Nina from Saint Louis, MO
Be prepared to study! This is nothing like high school. The professors expect you to learn the information and to discuss it in class, so be prepared.
Taniya from Affton, MO
Apply for every scholarships and grant you can find!
Alexis from Shiloh, IL
1) Keep up your high school cumulative GPA because it really does matters when it come for school and scholarship selections.
2) Be involved and stay involved, the more involve in show how outstanding and outgoing you are. That is one of the most important thing colleges look for.
3) Do apply as many colleges and universities as you wish, so that will give you a variety of choices to pick.
4) Apply for a lot of scholarships, take advantages of scholarships offer for high school students because once you're a college student. There are not many scholarships offering for you.
thanh from Florissant, MO
Visit the campus. Only then will you really be able to see if you can picture yourself here. If you go on a tour, do it during the school year that way you have a better feeling of what the school is like. The summer tours are still pretty good but it's better to see what the University is with all its students.
