New Student Convocation and Family Welcome

We officially welcome students and their families to Saint Louis University each year at New Student Convocation. You’ll hear from SLU administration, faculty, staff and students as you become a true Billiken.

Saint Louis President Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D., addresses incoming Billikens at the 2022 New Student Convocation ceremony.

Convocation is one of the first opportunities for the entire new class of Billikens to develop a sense of cohesion and identity. Members of the SLU community will share what being a Billiken has meant to them and what they hope it will mean for you.
