Open Houses and Special Programs

From preview days to admitted-student events and transfer open houses, we offer programs to help you learn more about Saint Louis University.  


This event allows for prospective students from diverse, multicultural backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented on college campuses to experience Saint Louis University and meet current students, faculty and staff. Faithful to its values of promoting social justice, Saint Louis University is committed to fostering an inclusive environment that welcomes and celebrates all expressions of diversity and identity that advance the Jesuit mission of forming women and men for and with others. The overnight visit experience will take place Sept. 17-18. Highlights of the program include the Infinite Scholars Fair, an overnight stay in a residence hall, faculty and current student panels, a class visit, a financial aid and admission presentation, and a campus tour.
