Saint Louis University Reviews
I love SLU! All of the students and staff that I have encountered are very friendly and helpful. The campus is one of the best that I have ever seen, from the dorms to the historic buildings to the even the athletic fields. There are also plenty of tools to help students succeed and a strong emphasis is put on making sure students taken care of in every aspect. However, the biggest downside to SLU is the cost. Tuition is very expensive along with housing and pretty much everything else. However, I think it is worth it because you can't really put a price on a good education!
My experience at Saint Louis University has been tremendous so far! I have met many friends, participated in several clubs and activities and my professors have been outstanding. The smaller class sizes have made it easier to connect with classmates for study groups and I have gotten to know my professors well. While the academics are challenging I feel like faculty and staff really set you up for success at Saint Louis University!
I love SLU! I attended SLU many years ago fresh out of high school. Due to financial and family challenges I ended up dropping out and going into the military. Now many years later, I am back at SLU, a real non-traditional student ...lol... actively pursing a degree in Organizational Leadership and Technology. Everything here at SLU is truly done in a spirit of excellence!
