From the School

Since 1818, Saint Louis University has been a home to innovators and pioneers, a community of scholars who push intellectual boundaries and seek creative, meaningful ways to impact the world.

WORLD-CLASS: SLU is a Jesuit, Catholic research university, highly ranked by the Princeton Review and by U.S. News & World Report.

SLU boasts 17 academic programs in the top 50 in their fields and several in the top 10, along with accolades for campus sustainability efforts, military-friendliness and as a “best value” in private education. SLU is also the first Jesuit university to receive the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award.

URBAN AND INTERNATIONAL: With two dynamic, urban campuses — in St. Louis, Missouri, and Madrid, Spain — the university is home to nearly 13,000 students from 50 states and 78 countries. SLU’s international focus and 45+ study abroad programs invite students to engage with and learn from the global community. The St. Louis campus is a welcoming residential oasis located steps from some of the region’s top art and culture venues, while SLU-Madrid puts students in the heart of one of Europe’s most vibrant, history-rich cities.

HANDS-ON: One of only nine Catholic universities with a “higher” or “highest” research activity designation, SLU empowers students to collaborate with faculty mentors on groundbreaking research and gain hands-on experience. From developing systems to filter arsenic pollution out of water to exploring innovative ways to get fresh produce into low-income neighborhoods, students don’t just contemplate solutions to the day’s most challenging problems — they actively work to make those solutions reality.

SERVICE-MINDED: Jesuit tradition inspires the SLU community’s commitment to service and social justice. Designated a “character-building college,” SLU was also the first institution named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for nine consecutive years. Students cook meals in the Campus Kitchen, volunteer at student-run medical and law clinics, and work alongside dozens of community organizations to serve their neighbors.

A SLU education gives graduates not only the skills to succeed in their careers but also the wisdom to lead lives of meaning and purpose. SLU alumni have become mayors of major cities, helped put men on the moon, directed Hollywood blockbusters and worked side-by-side with Mother Theresa.

Students Say

At Saint Louis University, a Jesuit institution in Missouri, the focus is squarely on "educating the whole person and serving others to make the world a better place." In the Jesuit tradition, the school is about "shaping the whole person: mind, body, and spirit." The "generally open-minded, non-judgmental, and welcoming" campus, located in the heart of Saint Louis, is a "big-city school with a small-town feel," with approximately 7,500 undergraduates. The "small class size" is a big draw in academically rigorous courses, and student say, "SLU is all about having unique experiences that challenge preconceived notions and promote learning and growth." Professors on the whole "really engage the students and you can tell they are passionate about what they do," though some, as at any school, just "go through the motions and lack enthusiasm." Some students make it clear that SLU professors go above and beyond. One student notes, "Every single professor I've had, whether it is a 300-person lecture or a 30-student lecture, genuinely cares about you. They are accommodating and understanding of everyone's circumstances and are always willing to try to help you." According to some students, the school's academic strengths are not equally divided, as SLU "has great science/medical programs (e.g. nursing, pre-med track, engineering, etc.), but not as strong liberal arts or music."

From The School

Students participate in more than 200 clubs, honor societies and service organizations; 18 NCAA Division I teams; intramural sports; and community service efforts that see 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. SLU’s multicultural organizations highlight and celebrate the diversity of the University community, and a variety of faith-based organizations support and challenge students as they explore their own faith traditions.

Students Say

While there's less emphasis on the Ugg boot-wearing, North Face jacket-toting girls and American Eagle jean-clad boys than in previous years, SLU still struggles with being a fairly homogenous campus. As some students bluntly put it, "We are too white," and "SLU could admit more students of color." Others counter that "The student body at SLU is extremely diverse, and no one is exactly the same. SLU encourages diversity and uniqueness." In keeping with the school's religious ideals, students say, "We are encouraged by the Jesuit Mission, being men and women for others to work on behalf of people whose voices are not ordinarily heard." Describing their peers as "insightful, intelligent, warm, and [caring] about the well-being of the world," SLU students emphasize that, "SLU is unique in that the community is exceptionally strong. There really is a palpable feeling of acceptance and support when you join the community in any capacity."


From The School


At Saint Louis University, students are in the center of everything, whether studying at SLU's Midtown St. Louis campus or SLU’s international campus in Madrid, Spain.

ST. LOUIS: 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 dynamic city.

The St. Louis metro region boasts nearly 3 million people. 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 Mechanics' "Best Startup Cities in America" list. The city also is home to the iconic Gateway Arch and a variety of cultural, historical and sporting attractions.

Students love cheering on the SLU Billikens. The only NCAA Division I school in town, SLU fields teams in 11 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.

MADRID: In 1969, SLU became one of first American universities to establish a foreign campus. Each semester, 670+ students from 49 countries pursue their studies at SLU-Madrid. Southern Europe’s greenest city, Madrid offers refreshing parks and a beautiful riverside promenade. The historic central district is easy to cross on foot, and the barrios popular among students are only a few metro stops away — Madrid’s mass transit system is among the best in the world.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

During the past three decades, Saint Louis University improvements and expansions have totaled approximately $850 million. In recent years, the University completed some of the most significant building projects in its history, including the $82 million Edward A. Doisy Research Center, which offers SLU’s innovative researchers a world-class facility.

In 2016, SLU’s newest residence hall, a $43.8 million, eight-story, 153,000-square-foot facility opened to students. A second new residence hall is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017.

Also on campus is the 10,600-seat Chaifetz Arena, which is the home of Billiken basketball and also hosts many of the country’s top entertainment acts, and SLU’s 70,000-square-foot Center for Global Citizenship. Students can enjoy countless recreational activities at the university’s 120,000-square-foot Simon Recreation Center, which features indoor basketball and handball courts, a bouldering wall and an indoor pool.

Off-Campus Opportunities

ST. LOUIS: 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 to experience world-class art, theater, dance and music just steps away from SLU's campus.

Minutes away by car, bus or light rail train, students can explore 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—all free to the public. 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. Then go downtown to catch a game. St. Louis is noted for being one of the nation's best sports cities, and residents root for the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team, St. Louis Blues hockey team, and a bevy of independent sports teams.

MADRID: The city of Madrid is home to 230,000 university students. It’s a cosmopolitan capital, a metropolis alive with learning and all that Spanish life has to offer, from flamenco shows to late-night tapas.

Madrid offers cultural experiences to rival any city in Europe, including a Royal Palace, a train station designed by Eiffel, countless theaters, museums and glorious churches. Gorgeous fountains with splashing waters can be found at the intersections of the city’s grand, tree-lined avenues, and the city’s beautiful parks are ideal for weekend picnics or morning runs.

Students Say

The school's location in Saint Louis provides much of the off-campus entertainment for students. In fact, students "all receive Metro Passes to get around the city as much as [they] please." Popular spots include The Arch and Forest Park, "which is just a walk away from campus and is a massive beautiful park in the middle of Saint Louis." On campus, students note, "Intramurals are popular as is Greek life, but at SLU Greek life does not define your college experience." Even so, other students declare, "Greek life is very popular on SLU's campus." Despite SLU's city location, students emphasize that, "Although we are urban, our campus is very traditional in that there is a lot of green space, a traditional quad, and hammocks everywhere for studying/ relaxing." Service opportunities abound, as per SLU's Jesuit principles, and students praise the "emphasis on community service" on and off campus. Some students say that safety can be a concern, being in an urban environment like Saint Louis, cautioning that "during the day it is perfectly fine, but at night it is smart to have someone to walk with for safety." Overall, students say, "Clubs and extracurriculars are very popular, but people seem to put a greater emphasis on making friendships, seeking a faith or spiritual life, and definitely on working hard in school to achieve one's intended career path."

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.
