Why Visit Saint Louis University?

When you ask a SLU student why they chose Saint Louis University, the answer almost always involves their visits to campus. It isn't just the campus tour leaders who welcome you in, or the students you happen to meet throughout the day who encourage you to be a Billiken. It's a feeling you get that you fit here. That you are home. 

How Do You Know SLU is Right for You? 

“When I stepped on campus and I started talking to my tour guide and talking to the faculty members that I would work with, I almost immediately felt like family here, and I knew that they would support me in whatever I did.”
—  Daniela Echeverri, Houston, Texas, Class of 2019

“On all my other college tours, I would always smile to the current students and SLU was the only school where every person I smiled to smiled back. That just represents SLU very well, I think, and it just embodies the environment SLU has.”

“I chose SLU because I had a really great tour. The tour guide was  super energetic, and he did a really good job,”
