Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow

Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) is a student-led organization that educates current students on what it means to be alumni of Saint Louis University, build philanthropy awareness on campus and engage with alumni through networking, professional development and social events.

STAT logo

The purpose of STAT is to connect current students and alumni through the three pillars of the organization: 

  • Educate: STAT creates unique programming for current students that will help them prepare for their upcoming roles as alumni, including networking opportunities with alumni and the Life After SLU series.
  • Engage: STAT fosters the Billiken experience through events such as Homecoming and Family Weekend and Senior Night at the Ballpark. In addition, STAT connects current students with alumni by offering volunteer activities at various local alumni events. STAT frequently partners and volunteers with BOLD (Billikens of the Last Decade).
  • Give: STAT created the Students Helping Students Scholarship, an emergency need-based scholarship that is funded for students by students. STAT sponsors several fundraisers throughout the year to support the scholarship and increase philanthropy awareness across campus.

To learn more about STAT and how you can be a part of this organization, please email the Membership Chair.


Giving Opportunities

Part of STAT's mission is to build philanthropy awareness on campus, and therefore we host multiple opportunities throughout the year for students to give back to Saint Louis University and fellow Billikens in need. Read below for our ongoing campaigns. 

Espresso Your Love
Espresso Your Love for SLU this fall by giving $5 – about the cost of a cup of coffee – and support the Students Helping Students Scholarship. All proceeds raised by students will be matched by Saint Louis University.
Pitch In Your Part

Save the date! The week of March 19th, we will be asking students to Pitch In Your Part for the Students Helping Students Scholarship. All gifts made during this week will be doubled, thanks to SLU’s Go Further Scholarship matching program.
