SLU 101 summer orientation isn’t just for students. Parents and families are encouraged to attend as well.
We offer a complete schedule of sessions specifically for family members to help you become more familiar with campus and to cover transition topics specifically designed for parents/families. Session topics include scholarships and financial aid, student health, campus safety, academic advising, student services and transition issues.
While you might consider returning to campus in August for Fall Welcome to help your student move on campus, SLU 101 is the event where parents and families receive the most information about SLU and are able to interact with our faculty, staff and students. It is helpful to have a parent or family member attend with the student because SLU 101 programming includes a student track and a family track, with different schedules.
SLU 101 guests are responsible for their own overnight accommodations. Guests are not allowed to stay with their students in the residence halls during SLU 101.
Saint Louis University is located in a thriving urban area filled with hotel accommodations just minutes away from campus, many of which offer discounted rates for Saint Louis University visitors. Please note that rates are subject to change and based on availability.
