About These Views
This camera rotates through views of the Busch Student Center and the eastern portion of campus, including Marchetti Towers Apartments and Chaifetz Arena, and a view of the Dolphin Pond and Grand Hall.
- About Busch Student Center: Known on campus as "the BSC," this building is home to student organizations, support staff, on-campus dining options, a bank, the campus bookstore and more. On the lower level, find student mailboxes, lockers, an interfaith prayer space, Esports facilities and the Billiken Club. The building also has 27,000 square feet of meeting space. Outside, areas of patio seating on two sides of the building are popular gathering spots for studying.
- About the Dolphin Pond: Saint Louis University's Dolphin Pond was installed in spring 1992 near Ritter Hall. When its construction was announced, it was referred to as a “reflection pond,” only later taking on the Dolphin Pond name thanks to its seven concrete dolphins. In the fall of 2018, it was announced that the Dolphin Pond would need to be removed due to the construction of the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Building. The current pond is approximately 96 feet long and stands in front of Grand Hall.
- About Grand Hall: Opened in 2017, Grand Hall is primarily home to first- and second-year students at SLU. At seven stories tall and 237,000 square feet, Grand Hall is a community on-to itself, offering single and double suite-style rooms, dedicated educational and innovation spaces, study rooms, floor lounges, kitchens and laundry rooms. It is also home to Grand Dining Hall, which features a new 740-seat dining hall that will include restaurant-style seating, a fireplace and multiple food stations.
