From the School

Founded in 1818, Saint Louis University (SLU) is a premier Catholic, Jesuit research university offering a broad range of nationally ranked undergraduate, graduate and professional programs. The second-oldest Catholic university in the nation, SLU has been a pioneer in higher education for nearly 200 years, and today continues its strong tradition of serving a higher purpose by contributing to the greater good.

With campuses in St. Louis, Missouri, and Madrid, Spain, SLU fosters the intellectual, moral and spiritual development of more than 13,000 students from all 50 U.S. states and nearly 80 foreign countries. SLU students — who rank the near the top 10 percent of all college students in the country come to the University to pursue a top-notch education in a broad range of disciplines. They also take advantage of SLU's highly ranked programs in business, law and engineering; special opportunities such as direct-entry nursing and health sciences programs, and early admission to the University's medical and law schools; and extensive study-abroad program options.

In the Classroom and Beyond SLU offers students something rare in higher education: The opportunity to study at a place where academic achievement and scientific advancement unite with a commitment to community and Jesuit values.

Here, 99 percent of tenured and tenure-track faculty members hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field. And with SLU's low student-faculty ratio (12-1), students receive personalized attention from the top scholars in their fields. As one of only nine Catholic universities with a high or very high research activity designation, SLU also offers students the chance to collaborate with innovative researchers on groundbreaking work that is changing lives.

This emphasis on making a difference takes SLU students beyond the classroom, and the University is consistently recognized on the national level for its dedication to educating the whole person. SLU was named to the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the seventh consecutive year in 2014, and it has been designated as a "character-building college" by the Templeton Foundation. Each year, SLU students, faculty and staff members collectively complete more than 1 million hours of community service.

Around the world, Saint Louis University students put their education into practice. Six months after graduation, 96 percent of SLU graduates report that they are satisfied in their postgraduate activities, including pursuing careers and graduate studies. SLU alumni have directed Hollywood blockbusters, become mayors of major cities, helped put men on the moon and worked side-by-side with Mother Theresa. Alumni are also highly successful doctors, lawyers, physical therapists, engineers and social workers, among countless other careers.

Students Say

“The Jesuit tradition really resonates in everything that happens at SLU,” a place where “service, social justice, and political awareness are stressed at every level of your education.” This “medium-sized Jesuit school with solid academic programs and a campus that feels close-knit” is best known for its “great premedical programs,” which include “a great direct-entry physical therapy program” and “a well-respected accelerated nursing program” as well as the school’s premed tracks. Students also speak highly of SLU’s offerings in business and pre-law, as well as its unique programs in aviation and “the one-of-a-kind nutrition program with a culinary emphasis.” Students praise the way this curriculum “forces you to examine your worldview from the moment you step on campus and helps you discover what your beliefs really are.” Academics, especially in the high-profile departments, can be rigorous. In this regard, SLU is “perfect for high achievers and scholars who strive for the best. The professors are nice and professional but are very stern about assignments being turned in on time.” One student says, “When it comes to natural sciences, particularly chemistry, biology, etc., I think SLU can be very hard. I guess it works, though. A nursing degree or physical therapy degree from SLU is very highly respected in the health care profession.”

Overall

From The School

Students support nearly 200 clubs, honor societies and service organizations; 18 NCAA Division I teams; intramural sports; and community service efforts that see more than 80 percent of SLU students volunteering at least once during the academic year.

Talent and commitment matter at SLU, and high levels of energy and dedication exist in everything Saint Louis University students pursue: academic societies, athletics, performing arts and media groups, student government, cultural and political organizations, and fraternities and sororities. Students come out in force to support Billiken athletics, and the Simon Recreation Center is popular with both serious and more casual athletes. Co-curricular life extends throughout the campus with numerous lectures, workshops, films, festivals, concerts and plays.

Students Say

SLU “has a pretty homogeneous student population of white, upper-middle-class students coming from a private high school (usually Jesuit, and single-sex) or from the suburbs of bigger Midwestern cities. The girls wear Uggs and North Face fleeces and dye their hair, while the boys live in their…American Eagle jeans.” Many “have been in the Catholic school system their entire lives,” although there are also “quite a few kids who went to public school.” Students are generally committed to the concept of service, and they “put forth a lot of community service hours into the surrounding area, from Habitat for Humanity to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters programs. There are plenty of clubs students use to help raise money for their organizations.”

Location

At Saint Louis University, students are in the center of everything. SLU's beautiful urban campus in Midtown St. Louis stretches across more than 230 acres of lush greenery, flowers and fountains. Students and visitors alike appreciate the unique vibe of a close-knit community nestled in the middle of a bustling city. Get a taste of campus and schedule your own visit at visit.slu.edu.

The St. Louis metro region boasts nearly 3 million people, with approximately 320,000 residents in the city itself. The city's mix of Midwestern friendliness and large-city amenities has helped St. Louis garner its ranking as one of the best cities for young professionals. In 2015, St. Louis grabbed the No. 1 spot on Popular Mechanica' "Best Startup Cities in America" list. The city is home to the famous Gateway Arch and a variety of cultural, historical and sporting attractions.

Midtown St. Louis serves as a starting point to explore the city's vibrant downtown and the dozens of unique neighborhoods nearby. Just steps away from SLU's urban campus is Grand Center, the region's premier arts district, rich with theater and music. Students can also hop onto a light rail train or bus and sample international delicacies in one of the many popular restaurants; stroll through Forest Park, home to the city's free zoo, art museum, science center and history museum; or catch the country's hottest bands or up-and-coming indie acts at the Pageant.

With three professional sports teams and a number of independent sports teams, St. Louis is always high on any sports fan's list of must-see cities. Students also love cheering on the Saint Louis University Billikens as the only NCAA Division I school in St. Louis. SLU fields teams in 18 different sports, and the Billikens have earned many accolades, including 10 NCAA men's soccer championships, more than any other team in the United States. The Billiken basketball teams play in the 10,600-seat Chaifetz Arena, and the men's team recently made three straight NCAA Tournament appearances.

But that's not all SLU has to offer. The University expanded internationally in 1969 by establishing a campus in Madrid, Spain, becoming one of the first American institutions of higher education to open a campus abroad. SLU-Madrid has been recognized by Spain's higher education authority as an official foreign university, the first U.S. institution ever so recognized. Each semester, more than 650 students pursue their studies at the Madrid campus.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

Over the past three decades, Saint Louis University improvements and expansions have totaled approximately $850 million. During the past few years, Saint Louis University unveiled the two most significant building projects in its history. The $82 million Edward A. Doisy Research Center offers SLU's world-class researchers a world-class facility. The $81 million Chaifetz Arena is not only the home for Billiken men's and women's basketball and Billiken volleyball, but also regularly hosts other sporting events, concerts, family shows, trade shows and more. SLU also recently moved its law school to a newly renovated 12-story building in downtown St. Louis, in the heart of the city's legal community.

In the fall of 2014, SLU announced a campus housing master plan that calls for new residence halls and extensive renovations to existing facilities. Construction has already begun on a new $43.8 million residence hall with the eight-story, 153,000-square-foot facility scheduled for completion in July 2016. The project is the first in what will be a series of potential projects designed to enhance the on-campus student experience.

Other recent campus enhancements include a major renovation of Pius XII Memorial Library and the addition of a new Center for Global Citizenship and the Everest Education Union at the University's Medical Center. The SLU Laclede Park Recreational Complex includes three lakes, walking paths, a picnic area, softball field and recreation fields. The campus is also home to the historic Cupples House, a fully restored mansion built in 1890, as well as several unique art galleries and St. Francis Xavier College Church.

Off-Campus Opportunities

Midtown St. Louis offers access to affordable living as well as the excitement of the Grand Center arts district, the cultural heart of St. Louis. The booming performing arts neighborhood features opportunities for art, theatre, dance and music just steps away from SLU's campus. Don’t miss the historic Fox Theatre with some of the most memorable concerts and Broadway shows or the famous St. Louis Symphony Orchestra in Powell Symphony Hall.

Just minutes away by car, bus or light rail train, you can play in Forest Park, the 1904 World's Fair site that's larger than even New York City's Central Park and home to the city's world-class art museum, zoo, science center and history museum. Check out the Delmar Loop, one of the "10 Great Streets in America," or head to "The Hill," a nationally noted neighborhood for authentic Italian cuisine, including St. Louis' famous toasted ravioli. Or go downtown to catch a professional baseball, hockey, or football game St. Louis is noted for being one of the nation's best sports cities. Residents root for the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team, St. Louis Blues hockey team, St. Louis Rams football team and a bevy of independent sports teams. In addition, the Saint Louis University Billikens excite the city with 18 NCAA Division I sports as St. Louis' only Division I school.

Co-curricular life extends throughout the campus with numerous lectures, workshops, films, festivals, concerts and plays.

Students Say

“SLU manages to provide everything your parents wish for your college experience and still everything you wouldn’t want them to know about,” undergrads here confide. Campus life includes “a lot of fun activities the student government puts on…such as outdoor movies, balls, and dances.” “Dorm life is very strict and not much fun.” The party scene “is decent,” because “there are a lot of off-campus living opportunities that are close by and great places to live. The Lofts and Coronado are two great off-campus apartments that are extremely close by.” College sports are in the mix. “With the new arena, basketball games are becoming the thing to do.” Greek life “is great at SLU.” The fraternities and sororities “provide many parties and events for the students and activities such as laser tag and barbecue” to help the students “become involved” and “get to know each other.” Being in St. Louis means “great city life around, but most of it is for students that are twenty-one and above,” and “off-campus eateries that are close by and range from Drunken Fish Sushi to Rally’s Burgers.” Students tell us “safety is a huge importance in SLU since we are so close to the city, [and fortunately] there is usually a DPS officer that is always close by to help students in need.” “SLU’s Jesuit influence encourages the student body to become active in the community. SLU’s efforts to encourage community service give many students their first taste of the real world and better prepare them to venture out into it after graduation.”

Sustainability

Founded in 1818, Saint Louis University is the oldest university west of the Mississippi River. For this Catholic, Jesuit university, working to find environmentally friendly and sustainable ways to live on this planet certainly aligns with its mission to serve a higher purpose by contributing to the greater good. Recently, the Sierra Club named SLU as one of its “Cool Schools” for its commitment to sustainability. Food served on campus is purchased from many local family farms, and SLU attempts to purchase as much organic and sustainable food products as possible, such as cage-free shell eggs and organic produce. The University, and its dining services, take pride in both reducing waste and reinvesting in the community. Part of being green is avoiding as much landfill waste as possible. In an effort to increase campus recycling, SLU has a single-stream recycling service in which students and staff can easily place all recyclable materials in the same container. The University is planning to start a bike-sharing program in 2015, beginning with 10 campus bicycles. Currently, the University offers bike racks and showers for bicycle commuters at several facilities. On the academic front, the University has two degree programs that have sustainability learning outcomes: master of science in sustainability and master of arts in urban planning and real estate development. The University’s state-of-the-art Doisy Research Center - built in part with recycled steel, bamboo, and cork - was awarded LEED certification after it was constructed in 2007.
