SLU at a glance
Founded in 1818, Saint Louis University is one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious Catholic institutions. Rooted in Jesuit values and its pioneering history as the first university west of the Mississippi River, SLU offers nearly 13,000 students a rigorous, transformative education of the whole person. At the core of the University’s diverse community of scholars is SLU’s service-focused mission, which challenges and prepares students to make the world a better, more just place.

Beyond the classroom
At Saint Louis University, students learn by doing, building on knowledge and skills gained in the classroom with hands-on practice and lab work along with internships and service learning. Students in
all of SLU’s undergraduate majors—from business to health care to the arts and humanities—have
opportunities to practice the real-world skills sought after by today’s employers.

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.
