This year, more than ever, Saint Louis University needs to build community across student organizations, especially to allow students who may not yet have found “their” organizations to connect with others. As part of our OneSLU commitment, student organizations may now propose some in-person events this spring, as long as events are open to all students.
There are still limitations on the number of available indoor spaces that can be used for events, but the University strives to find a balance to allow in-person activities for you while not imposing too many additional burdens on our custodial services teams. You can see the approved events below and learn more about the steps for how to propose in-person events by viewing the revised Guidance on Student Activities, Meetings and Events.
