Saint Louis University

It's only been a week since the class of 2012 graduated from Saint Louis University, but many are already preparing for the arrival of the class of 2016.

SLU will host the first two-day SLU 101 session for incoming freshmen Thursday, May 31. Incoming transfer students also will be on campus today, May 29. 

On Thursday, May 24, the Office of Student Development hosted a kick-off party for all those involved in the SLU 101 program. During the reception, attendees got the opportunity to meet with this year's SLU 101 leaders and learn more about the class of 2016.

More than 1,000 students are expected to visit SLU to learn more about the University's academic programs, housing, financial assistance and its Jesuit Mission. Students will be invited to spend the night in Reinert Hall and dine with current SLU students.

While SLU 101 activities will send these guests all over campus, including McDonnell Douglas Hall, the Allied Health Professions Building and School of Nursing, the majority of the orientation events will take place in the Busch Student Center. The University community is encouraged to welcome these special visitors and their families to campus.
