Welcome to Be a Billiken and to Saint Louis University. There are a few things you should know about SLU. First, the entire campus is really friendly. From the upperclassmen you'll meet during your campus visit, to current students and that faculty and staff, SLU is known for being welcoming.

Secondly, SLU is someplace you come to change the world. We believe in our mission and live it every day. SLU students are involved in the community before graduation (service is a big deal here) and  you'll choose from almost 100 incredible majors, taught by faculty that are top-of-their-field, prepare you to make an impact when you graduate.
