Sophomore Elizabeth Wangley finds lots of ways to get involved at Saint Louis University, including student government association, SLU Honors Program and, of course, her classes (she's a finance major).
Minor: Computer Science
Hometown: St. Louis, Missouri
I have been a competitive figure skater for over 10 years now. Besides skating, I also enjoy tennis and track (hurdling is my favorite event). I love to travel and am an absolute foodie especially when it comes to Asian cuisine. Drone piloting is one of the hobbies that I take with me when I travel.
Why I Chose SLU
I was attracted by the Business Scholars Program and Honors Program. I was also impressed by how the SLU admissions team communicated with me. It was very personal and welcoming. I also found that SLU’s proximity to home was a perk.
Highlight from My SLU Experience So Far
The professors I have met are very eager to help me learn. I feel comfortable asking lots of questions. In my math class, I enjoy working with my classmates to solve problems. I like the teamwork aspect, it helps me understand the process.
What I Love About SLU's Campus
It is a beautiful campus and everything is fairly close together. There are also many places to grab a bite in between classes. The hammocks placed around campus are the perfect place to relax and enjoy a Frappuccino from Starbucks.
How I Stay Connected to Other Billikens
I connect with other Billikens by going to school events, playing sports at the rec center, or just hanging out on my floor lounge. I am also involved in clubs.
Favorite Things About St. Louis
I love the traditions here. There are many activities that are a must-do like going to a Cardinal’s baseball game, enjoying a picnic on Art Hill, going ice skating at Steinberg, and trying the delicious Ted Drewes’ Frozen Custard. SLU does a great job of making sure students have the opportunity to get involved with these traditions.
What Else Should You Know About Me?
A fun fact about me is that I have a cat. She enjoys going on walks while dressed up in flashy outfits.
