You have college questions. SLU has the answers.

Choosing a university is exciting but it can also be confusing and a little intimidating. You've got a ton of college search questions, from "What university should I choose?" and "How does financial aid work?" to  "What should I major in?" and "How can I get a scholarship?" If it all leaves you feeling like you need a little good luck, we've got you covered.

Be a Billiken has all the information you'll need to help you plan for life as a college student. We're here for the entire college search, telling you how to request information, walking you through college applications, giving you the top questions to ask on college tours and mixing things up with fun polls and quizzes about campus life.

All the information comes from Saint Louis University, which has been welcoming undergraduate students for almost 200 years. We are a Catholic, Jesuit university ranked among the top research institutions in the nation. SLU's mission embraces the pursuit of truth and service to humanity - and that includes providing the best college information possible. 

While you're on Be a Billiken, you can explore articles about getting into college, campus visits and take college quizzes. You can also find out more about SLU, like all the hot spots around our urban campus in St. Louis,Mo. or what exactly being a billiken has to do with a successful life after graduation.
