As a current sophomore at Saint Louis University, I want to preface by saying that I could not see myself at any other university. SLU is an extremely open college where you will meet people from diverse backgrounds who have different experiences. Of course, people will always complain and say that the "rich white people" surround SLU. However, if you actually try and engage in the SLU community you will find more than just that. SLU has given me life long friends and an education that I am proud of. So far my classes have gone well and are usually well taught. If there are any complaints, there are always surveys at the end of the semester that go straight to the department heads for review. Finding the right college for you is difficult. I was lucky enough to fall in love with SLU as soon as I visited. I definitely suggest visiting and doing an overnight to see if SLU is right for you. Roll Bills!

Saint Louis University is a great school no matter what you want to major in. They have great medical programs, engineering programs, and even an aviation program. SLU is the perfect size, small enough where classes are close, but big enough that you can meet someone new every day! Location is great too, it is about 5 minutes away from the heart of downtown.
I would like to see more involvement in the sports aspect. We have a soccer, baseball and basketball team, but not a lot of students attend their events.
Saint Louis University is a school full of diversity and laughter. Walking through the campus you can always find a smiling face of someone you have a had a class with or just have seen them passing through West Pine at the same time you are. A few of the perks of a smaller school! Classes challenge you; and you almost always get a great professor--even if they are a bit intimidating the first day. If you hate helping your community, then you won't fit in at SLU. SLU students are all about community service. There is always some type of community service event going on that you can get involved in. While, the party scene is very small and pretty much only exists your freshman year--once you turn 21 you get to enjoy all of the unique bars that St. Louis has to offer! St. Louis is a small but remarkable city, offering something from every age group; such as the Arch, the free zoo, or the City Museum.
