Saint Louis University Reviews
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!
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!
