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 and offered the financial aid I required.
Highlights from My SLU Experience
The first snow my freshman year was very exciting! My roommates and I went outside and visited the Cupples House while it was snowing, and it was very lovely. Also, getting to eat in the dining hall with my friends for the first time my sophomore year was super exciting since we didn’t get to do that my freshman year (because of COVID-19 precautions).
What I Love About SLU's Campus
SLU’s campus is so 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.
How I Stay Connected to Other Billikens
You’d be amazed how many friendships start by simply striking up a conversation with people you meet on the elevator.
