Saint Louis University Reviews
Saint Louis University is the complete package. They emphasize being a well-rounded student, meaning putting emphasis not only on grades and curriculum but also on meeting others, connections, student Life, knowledge on inclusion and diversity, and the overall well being those to attend this University. The main campus is absolutely beautiful and the students, professors, and staff are all very welcoming and friendly. This University is a great transition from living at home to living the college experience. As a racial minority I wish the University was more diverse between races though, they are taking strides to increase their inclusion. I have also already acquired many connections between professors and staff as well as friends that will last a lifetime.
Great community environment! Everyone at SLU is always super welcoming and kind. Academics are big at SLU so if you're looking for a school just for parties this may not be the place for you. Fraternity and Sorority life is not huge here, but if that is your thing you can definitely still get involved. If you're looking for a college that will give you holistic growth, SLU is the right place for you!
I absolutely love SLU! I have met my best friends here and I am the happiest I have ever been. This is my perfect fit and I love it here. The campus is beautiful and I love walking around and seeing the beautiful buildings. I love sitting outside at the clocktower with my friends when it's warm, and I love making snow angels and having snowball fights in the quad when it's cold. I love this school with all my heart!
