Saint Louis University's Honors program is known for its commitment to integrative and interdisciplinary learning. The Honors Learning Community, located in Spring Hall, provides additional opportunities for faculty engagement and student collaboration. Students form rich relationships in the Honors Learning Community that persist throughout their studies at SLU.
Why Choose the Honors Learning Community?
Honors faculty often spend time in the residence halls, facilitating discussions about self, SLU and the St. Louis community. This community also has a sophomore component for active participants who wish to continue in the community for a second year.
You must be accepted into the Honors Program and remain in good standing to live in the Honors Learning Community.
