Communities and Organizations

Getting involved is easy when you’re in the honors program. From living with your peers in a learning community to professional networking opportunities, find out how you can be a part of Saint Louis University’s honors community.

Honors Student Association

All honors students are automatically members of SLU’s Honors Student Association (HSA), a student-led organization that provides you with academic support, the chance to attend social events and participate in service opportunities.  Popular HSA events include service to Almost Home (an organization for young, single mothers), "Fireside Chats" with Honors Program faculty members, trips to Eckert's apple orchard, and the Honors Crossroads Trivia Night, an annual event that pits students against their faculty members in a battle of wits.

For information about HSA, email hsa@slu.edu or check out the HSA Facebook page for the latest announcements and events.

Honors Link Program Orientation

The honors program holds events throughout the year, including trivia nights with honors faculty members. 

Honors Learning Community

The Honors Learning Community (LC), located in Spring Hall, provides an opportunity for first- and second-year students to live together and to take associated courses together.  These common bonds enrich the academic experience of the Honors Program, engender strong friendships among participants and provide ample opportunities for service to communities in and around Saint Louis University.  

Spring Hall

Honors Program students can choose to participate in the Learning Community, which is located in Spring Hall.

Leaders for Involvement, Networking and Knowledge (LINK)

Honors LINKs are upperclassmen honors students who serve as mentors for incoming first-year students. LINKs sponsor Fall Welcome events for incoming honors students, as well as events throughout the year to assist you with the transition to college.

Each LINK works with a group of 10-12 first-year students and can assist you with everything from study tips to getting involved with life on campus.

You can apply and interview to be a LINK during the spring semester. New LINKs will participate in training in April and before classes resume in August.

Presidential Scholar Society

The Presidential Scholar Society is a student-led organization that provides professional, academic, service and cultural experiences to help SLU’s Presidential Scholarship recipients develop their full potential as leaders capable of solving issues facing our world today.

The Society provides members with up to $1,200 in support of an investigative learning experience, which may take the form of a research venture, service project, internship or other co-curricular endeavor.
