The largest Saint Louis University class in history was welcomed by Oriflamme student leaders who helped move in the newest Billikens and their families.

“I do love the energy - both the leaders and the new students,” said Jack Norys, an Oriflamme member and part of the class of 2020.  “It makes everyone feel welcome.”

Returning students move in Friday and throughout the weekend. Undergraduate classes officially begin Monday, Aug. 26.

Fall Welcome activities occur throughout the weekend. Events include Paint SLU, scheduled for Friday, and the New Student Day of Service on Saturday.
