Saint Louis University Reviews
Review Saint Louis University
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.
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.
