Why I Chose SLU
I really loved the SLU blue, and I was very interested in the Division 1 sports program at SLU. I did my first year completely online [during COVID], and all my professors were able to make appropriate accommodations for me especially because there was a 6-hour time difference. That just made me realize how welcoming the community is here at SLU. The first time I visited SLU, I felt very excited and overwhelmed by how much it felt like home far away from home.
What's Cool About My Major
Something cool about studying electrical engineering at SLU is that at career fairs you can get mentorship from engineers in top companies around St. Louis.
My Favorite Spot on SLU's Campus
Hermann Stadium because I love watching the soccer games there.
Something I Love About Living in St. Louis

My Favorite SLU Tradition
