Daily Admission Presentations and Campus Tours

As an introduction to Saint Louis University, join us for an on-campus admission presentation. This session with an admission representative covers academic programs, scholarships and financial aid, student support services, and the step-by-step application and admission process. The presentation is best suited for prospective students who have not yet been admitted to SLU. Daily offerings make it easy to fit an admission presentation and campus tour into your family's schedule. 

This presentation can be easily combined with a tour, where you will hear from current students about their favorite places on the Saint Louis University campus. Tours include many must-see spots including a classroom, lab space, Busch Student Center, a dining center and more. 

One of the best times to visit SLU is during the fall semester. It is a great representation of what life on campus will look like if you become a Billiken. Registration for daily tours in the fall semester is open now.

Billiken for a Day Visits

This overnight, immersive experience provides a unique look into what it means to be a Billiken. Hosted by a current SLU student and tailored just for you, the schedule will include a class visit, breakfast or lunch in a dining hall, a campus tour and an admission presentation with an admission counselor. Based on availability, these visits may also include an academic meeting with a faculty member. 

To the best of our ability, class shadows are selected specifically to meet the academic interests of each student. We are unable to add any additional activities or meetings to the Billiken for a Day visit.

Please note, family and guests are welcome to accompany their student for the admission presentation and tour only. Registered students will attend all other activities without guests.
