I chose SLU because of the nursing program and foresight of endless possibilities and opportunities within the program and university. SLU kept reaching out to me, checking in on me, and forming a personal connection to see my success.

What I Love About the Billiken Community

The inclusivity, affirmation and support. 

Fun Fact About My Major 

As a nursing major, we are all on the same team to become nurses, so both students and staff work together to make sure you succeed that offers a family feeling. 

Getting to Know SLU's Campus and the City of St. Louis

The greenery and landscape around campus is so beautiful and not often found in an urban setting. Something I love about living in St. Louis is living in an urban environment with a traditional college campus setting.

I felt a connection because SLU was my first visit, and something kept drawing me back to SLU when I toured other colleges. If you are constantly comparing different universities to one university, then you already have your answer of where to go.
