Saint Louis University
Saint Louis University is one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious Catholic universities. It was founded in 1818. Guided by our enduring Jesuit mission, we offer our nearly 13,000 students a highly rigorous and deeply transformative education that helps them develop into bold, confident leaders. Rated among the nation’s top 100 research universities, SLU boasts more than 20 graduate and undergraduate programs ranked among the top 100 in the country by U.S. News & World Report. Inspired by our pioneering history while firmly focused on a promising future, Saint Louis University continues to move forward with an unwavering commitment to serve a higher purpose while always seeking the greater good.
If you’re thinking about attending Saint Louis University, one of the first things we suggest is to visit campus. That’s because there is something special about seeing SLU in person. You’ll feel our spirit in the cheers coming from Chaifetz Arena and in the ritual of 9 p.m. Mass each Sunday. Run your hands down the same oak banisters brought to a gloss by generations of students before you and rub the bronze belly of the Billiken statue for good luck.
