With such a wide variety of institutions offering graduate programs, why choose SLU?
Some of you are accustomed to the "Jesuit thing."
But, for those of you who aren't, here's some insight into how it works:
You're in class debating vigorously. Your professor pushes you to think deeper and refine your argument. Your ideas, in turn, give your teacher fresh perspective, a new take on the text. Knowledge moves back and forth like a stream of energy.
But it doesn't stop there. At Saint Louis University, you won't learn for learning's sake. You learn -- working to sharpen your mind and soften your heart -- because you want to be a "woman or man for others." To take your knowledge outside the classroom. To help the sick. Work for peace. Or write a book that heals a thousand hearts.
That's what we mean about knowledge touching lives, about the spirit of Jesuit learning. You take and then you give.
This is the essence of a Saint Louis University education. A place where you not only can talk about the meaning of life -- maybe you can find it, too.
