Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow

Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) is a student-led organization that educates current students on what it means to be alumni of Saint Louis University, build philanthropy awareness on campus and engage with alumni through networking, professional development and social events.

STAT logo

The purpose of STAT is to connect current students and alumni through the three pillars of the organization: 

  • Educate: STAT creates unique programming for current students that will help them prepare for their upcoming roles as alumni, including networking opportunities with alumni and the Life After SLU series.
  • Engage: STAT fosters the Billiken experience through events such as Homecoming and Family Weekend and Senior Night at the Ballpark. In addition, STAT connects current students with alumni by offering volunteer activities at various local alumni events. STAT frequently partners and volunteers with BOLD (Billikens of the Last Decade).
  • Give: STAT created the Students Helping Students Scholarship, an emergency need-based scholarship that is funded for students by students. STAT sponsors several fundraisers throughout the year to support the scholarship and increase philanthropy awareness across campus.

To learn more about STAT and how you can be a part of this organization, please email stat@slu.edu.


Giving Opportunities

Part of STAT's mission is to build philanthropy awareness on campus, and therefore we host multiple opportunities throughout the year for students to give back to Saint Louis University and assist fellow Billikens in need through the Students Helping Students Scholarship.

Students Helping Students Scholarship

Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) is proud to promote the Students Helping Students Scholarship. This fund provides immediate one-time assistance to Billikens who find themselves in temporary need of additional funds to stay enrolled in classes and make progress towards graduation. The scholarship is awarded each fall and spring semester (awards are not made during summer sessions). 

The Students Helping Students Scholarship awarded over $40,000 in financial assistance to more than 40 students in its three years of existence. While the awards are made possible through generous gifts from students, alumni and friends of the university, the scholarship is funded primarily by gifts from current students.
