Honors Learning Community & FIGs
Dedicated to the holistic development of students in support of the Saint Louis University mission, the Honors Learning Community strives to develop active citizens through an emphasis on service, leadership, and a deeper appreciation of diversity by fostering an interdisciplinary, integrated learning experience for first and second year students. The Honors Learning Community is an environment where Honors students develop meaningful relationships with their peers as well as faculty and staff, grow intellectually through discourse and shared experiences, and establish a connection to the Saint Louis University community.
Honors students may elect to live in the Honors Learning Community their first and second years at Saint Louis University. Fusz Hall provides a residence for 80 Honors students on two floors set aside for Honors students. Residence hall rooms are either single or double occupancy, and each floor has a community lounge. Students interested in Honors housing should note their preference on their housing application in the spring.
Students may also elect to participate in an Honors FIG (First Year Interest Group) where a core group of students take three or four courses together and live together in the Honors Learning Community. Currently, the Honors program offers three FIGs: one Life-Science FIG and two general FIGs. Students who elect to join a FIG will be automatically enrolled in a Crossroads class and two or three other classes in common.
