Saint Louis University - A Gateway to the Future
Like the City of St. Louis in which it is located, Saint Louis University always has been at the edge of change. Just as the city functioned as the "Gateway to the West" for millions of Americans in search of something better for themselves, Saint Louis University has served for more than 180 years as a "gateway to the future" for more than 100,000 students seeking to discover something better within themselves and in the world around them. Yet while Saint Louis University always has been an innovative institution, it has maintained a firm foundation in the traditions of the Catholic Church and in the values of the Society of Jesus. We invite you to spend a few minutes exploring this website to learn more about the unique history of Saint Louis University and the Catholic and Jesuit traditions and values that prepare us to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
