Hometown: La Grange Park, Illinois
Why I chose SLU: I fell in love with SLU when I came for a campus visit and immediately felt welcomed by everyone. I chose to attend SLU because of the University's dedication to serving the community of St. Louis, the emphasis on providing a Jesuit education and the ability to study abroad at SLU's Madrid campus.

Hometown: O'Fallon, Missouri
Why I chose SLU: SLU gave me flexibility and freedom to not only be involved in a lot of different organizations on campus, but also study a variety of courses within different fields. Also, the size of campus complimented my laziness in that it only takes me, at most, 10 minutes to walk anywhere, featuring a view that isn't half bad!

Major: Physical Therapy
Why I chose SLU: I picked SLU out of the 22 colleges I applied to because everyone made me feel so much at home. Everyone was so warm and welcoming, and I could picture myself getting incredibly involved here in St. Louis. The direct admit physical therapy program was amazing and it was a perfect distance away from home. Everyone at SLU always wants you to succeed and become a better version of yourself!

Hometown: Arcola, Illinois
Why I chose SLU: I choose SLU because I was looking for something bigger in my life, somewhere I could grow into the woman I am destined to be. Coming from a small town, I needed more space to grow and develop as well as meet more people who may have different views than my own. I was also very drawn to the Jesuit Mission and loved the idea of being men and woman for and with others!
Hometown: Memphis, Tennessee
Why I chose SLU: Both of my parents went to SLU. They are from different cities and met here at SLU, so here I am! Everyone always asks me if they pressured me to go to SLU but that is actually the furthest thing from the truth. It is simply how SLU popped up on my college search radar. When I toured, I immediately fell in love. My family and home is very important to me and SLU reminded me so much of that due to the closeness of the SLU community. I truly felt it in my heart that SLU was the place for me and my home away from home. Now that I am a Billiken, I could not be more sure or happy with my decision.
