Family Trivia Night

A blue circle adorned with various board game pieces around it's edge, including plastic markers, dice, a circular token with a fluer-de-lis in its center and Scrabble tiles that spell SLU. Inside the circle is a Billiken head, abutted by two question marks, one right side up and the other upside down.We're looking forward to Billiken Parent and Family Association's 14th Annual Trivia Night and Silent Auction fundraiser on Saturday, March 25, 2023.

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

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 — if you graduated from SLU or not — to join your 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 exciting events, including a movie on the Quad, faculty presentations, campus tours, a service project, Billikens soccer game and fireworks.

Visit the Homecoming and Family Weekend page. Dates and details for 2023 will be coming soon!
