Saint Louis University Reviews
Review Saint Louis University
It depends upon what you're looking for. There are no houses for fraternities and sororities. However, they do live in community in dorms and off campus apartments. Greeks enjoy going out, but during the week, things are pretty tame. Overall, Greek life is tame, most are focused on academics and partying is not as big or as comparable to Greek partying at public universities. Greeks do a great deal of service, and have fun events. There are very cool venues around the Saint Louis area, in midtown, and downtown!
The Jesuit values shine through. Service and being for others is an important characteristic of the school that distinguishes it. Most students are inclusive of diversity and are tolerant and the professors, althiugh not as liberal or diverse, tend to be accepting as well. Academics are acceptable, being best for premed or nursing, business, and aviation. Physics is a small part and is limited, but what is offered is fair. Work load is not extremely demanding, but it's not the easiest either. As for extras, there are plenty of ways for students to be involved in clubs or competitions.
Saint Louis University provides you with great academics and allows you to get a quality education in a short period of time. I am involved in an advanced program that allows me to obtain my Masters in 5 years instead of 6 which is ultimately the reason I chose to go here. However, the area surrounding SLU is not the safest and can be dangerous if you are not careful. Also SLU tries to plan fun activities for students but most of the time students are not interested in going. A lot of students are incredibly smart but would rather take time to study instead of party.
