Life at SLU

Sing in the choir at 9 p.m. Mass. Dance the night away with Billikens After Dark. Cheer at Chaifetz Arena until your lungs hurt. Life at Saint Louis University is more than what happens in the classroom.

We believe in educating the whole person at SLU. We are not only concerned with the life of the mind, but also the life of the heart, body and spirit. It’s why our campus is rich with opportunities to get involved — to encourage you to become more complete, more balanced, more you.

Your time here should be an enriching adventure.

Step outside your comfort zone to discover something new about the world. You might be surprised about what you discover about yourself in the process.

What We Do

Billikens are an active bunch, with more than 150 on­-campus organizations. We act with the UTheatre performance company, test the principles of flight with SLU Rocketry and sing a cappella with the Bare Naked Statues.  You'll never also be bored with on-campus entertainment options including: 

How We Serve

Inspired by the Jesuit call to be men and women for others, service is an integral part of our identity. SLU students cook meals in the Campus Kitchen, provide legal advice to people in need and set aside a day each fall to make a difference through community service.
