Volunteer at Welcome and Preview Events

There are numerous events throughout the year — in and outside of St. Louis — that welcome potential students and parents to our Billiken Family. If you are enthusiastic, friendly and interested in helping parents feel secure about their decisions before, during and after their student transitions to SLU, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

Fall Welcome Events

Saint Louis University officially welcomes all of our incoming students and families by providing specific activities and programs to help acclimate you to the University. Students and families are encouraged to participate in our Fall Welcome programming. The schedule for fall 2023 will be posted over the summer.

Homecoming and Family Weekend

Sept. 22-24, 2023

Homecoming and Family Weekend is a combined weekend to celebrate both SLU Alumni and Billiken families. This is an event for Billiken parents and family members — whether they graduated from SLU or not — to join students on campus for several days of fun.

The purpose of this joint weekend:

  • For current families to visit their students on campus for the weekend
  • For alumni to commemorate and celebrate their time here at Saint Louis University
  • For families to experience Saint Louis University through their students' eyes
  • And so much more

The schedule typically includes events including a movie on the Quad, faculty presentations, campus tours, a service project, a Billikens soccer game and fireworks.
