January Select Saturday with Cultural Connections

Jan. 20, 2018

Join us at Saint Louis University and see what SLU is all about! From a campus tour to an interactive student panel, you’ll get an inside glimpse into the diversity of the Billiken experience. Founded in the Jesuit mission, our University is committed to fostering an inclusive environment. SLU welcomes and celebrates all expressions of diversity and social identities, and our Cultural Connections program aims to show prospective Billikens all of the outstanding opportunities that SLU has to offer. You will have the opportunity to attend an application review, which will help to ensure that you submit a strong college application, and a financial aid session that will help to answer your questions about becoming a Billiken. Also available will be information on our Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship — a scholarship that is open to all students and is awarded to those individuals that share SLU’s passion for the promotion of social justice. So join us for our Cultural Connections program and see if SLU is the right fit for you. From our admission presentation and campus tour to our student organization fair, you’ll see how SLU celebrates a unique and inclusive student body.
