Daily Presentations and Tours

With daily campus visit options, there are plenty of opportunities to add SLU to your summer vacation plans! Campus visits include an admission presentation followed by a campus tour. The presentation, led by an admission counselor or staff member, will cover academic programs, financial aid, student support services, and the academic and admission process. Your tour will be led by a University ambassador, who will share their current student experience while showing off their favorite spaces and key campus locations.
