Do you have SLU spirit? The last Friday of the month is Blue Spirit Day, when members of the human resources team partner with the Billiken to spread Saint Louis University spirit across the University. The next Blue Spirit Day is Friday, Sept, 30.
The Billiken can show up anywhere. So far, the departments of ophthalmology, dermatology, pediatrics, OB/GYN, and advancement, as well as the Doisy College of Health Sciences, Parks College, the School for Professional Studies and School of Law have been the lucky recipients of visits from the Billiken.
But what are Blue Spirit Days really about? This initiative is not only fun, but also designed to promote a sense of inclusion and community for faculty, staff and students.
In the words of Anna Beasley, the head of the Spirit Day committee in human resources, "Saint Louis University isn't just mortar and bricks, it's made up of individuals - you and I - and that's what our HR initiatives are promoting and celebrating. Saint Louis University is what it is because of all of the people who work here."
