Saint Louis University Reviews
Saint Louis University (SLU) embodies many of the key elements of a great university. The educators and instructors are top notch, the campus is beautifully curated, and students access to resources is competitive. The one area where SLU must make an important effort in improving is their disability services, and making the services more accessible to students with disabilities. While the services are available in name alone, the barriers created in meeting the needs of differently abled students are so great that many students go without their needed accommodations. Additionally, once the student does meet and go through the unnecessary hurdles to obtain these services, their needs are not handled by trained staff. For a university that trains future healthcare professionals it is unfortunate they cannot meet the needs of all of their students equally.
Coming here as a transfer student was a rough transition at first. However, by my second semester I have come to love SLU. The academics are rigorous and I feel like I am learning new things everyday. The students and faculty I have met here are amazing. If you are an incoming student get involved, there is something for everyone at SLU. The campus is gorgeous and I love everything that the St. Louis area has to offer. Definitely satisfied with choosing SLU!
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!
