Billiken Bus In, Billiken Fly In Bring High School Students to SLU
The Office of Admission will host more than 250 admitted high school seniors Sunday, April 3-Monday, April 4.
Admitted students from key feeder cities around the country will join us for a fun-filled visit to campus that starts with a charter bus ride with other admitted students from their hometown.
Students will begin arriving on Sunday afternoon and will stay overnight with a current SLU student in the residence halls. Sunday activities include a city or campus tour, a presentation on campus life, a student panel and fun activities such as a magician/comedian, movie and an option to attend 9 p.m. mass.
On Monday, students will attend class and meet with an academic department. The program ends with a Billiken Rally in the Chaifetz Arena featuring the Billiken and the Saintsations.
Buses will depart at noon for their return trip home.
For those students who live too far to ride a bus, the option of flying in for the program is also offered. Students will join up with the bus riders and participate in all the programs' activities. California, Texas, Maryland and Michigan are some of the states represented by these students.
Faculty and staff are urged to help welcome these future Billikens to campus.
