Minors are a great way to explore an interest outside of your main academic focus. Saint Louis University junior Brooke Kenworthy chose to add a minor in studio art to her civil engineering major.

Why I Chose SLU
SLU checked all of the boxes I was looking for in a college. It was a good distance from home, faith-based, allowed me to study art and engineering, and offered the financial aid I required.
Highlights of Being a Billiken
One of my favorite things about the Billiken community is that I can walk across campus 100% sure that I will see someone I know who will smile and wave. Everyone is so eager to meet new people and spend time in community with each other.
What I Love About SLU's Campus
SLU’s campus is beautiful! The greenery mixed with the urban surroundings make for an awesome environment to study in. Also, there are bunnies everywhere, which is definitely a bonus; I’ve been here for three years and still smile every time I see a campus bunny.
What's Cool About My Major
We have super-cool engineering facilities on campus where we can build, weld, test and break beams. Civil engineering students also participate in cool projects like the concrete canoe and bowling competitions.
Advice For the College Search Process
On a college tour, I would try to look around and focus on other students besides just the tour guide. Observing how students interact with each other is so important! Pick a place where students smile back at strangers and look genuinely happy to be there.
