The City Museum is THE COOLEST PLACE EVER!!!! If you ever come to St. Louis, you MUST stop by!! :)
Wow. I owe all of you some major catch-up. Life abroad is indescribable; and even keeping up with social media can be difficult when visiting a new country every week! I want to drop you all a quick “Happy Easter” note, though, and briefly tell you about the best Easter Sunday I have ever had.
I spent my spring break abroad traveling across Italy: From Venice to Florence to Sorrento to Pompei to Capri to Praiano to Rome and finally to Vatican City for Easter. Yes, the Vatican for Easter Mass with the new pope, “Papa Francisco” as we call him here in Spain!
Oh, and did I mention that I had a seat in the fourth row!? The mass and experience was overwhelmingly beautiful. I cannot even begin to describe the peace, pride and joy I felt along with the other 250,000 faithful present that morning in St. Peter’s Square.
Ah, and I almost forgot to mention that I got published by the Vatican News! I brought my American flag to the square and waved it with pride to represent my home country - a tradition of the crowd at the Vatican. One of the Vatican journalists snapped a quick photo of me and the news service posted it on Facebook and on “The Pope App.”
What an amazing, amazing Easter morning! I look forward to sharing more of my spring break with you soon.
Be Global. Be Proud. Be A Billiken.
Experience the world with Saint Louis University.

I went to good ole’ Cincinnati for Easter Break with friends and decided to make a documentary out of my trip.
Enjoy and Happy Easter everyone!!!

I just wanted to post this awesome photo of my friend and of course the best mascot in the world, the Billiken, in support for the game tomorrow against New Mexico State! Let’s go Bills!!!

BILLIKEN NATION BLUEOUT
The game was wild. Our bodies shaking with excitement as the Bills were up by 20 points against VCU who was previously the #1 ranked team in the A10 Conference, but that all changed when the buzzer went off indicating set, match, and game.
The Bills are now the #1 ranked team in the A10 conference which is such a thrill!
It was truly an amazing experience and I think most Billikens would agree that the energy from our community and the constant support for our Bills was a major part of the game.
Nevertheless, the Bills will be taking on Butler this Friday as visitor and it will truly be the most difficult game of the season. In the previous game, SLU defeated #9 Butler which was also a great game and this Friday will be sort of a re-match for the two teams.
I’m proud to be a Billken not only because of our amazing men’s basketball team, but the fact that this wonderful community constantly supports each other at so many diverse events on campus. If I could, I would go to every single event! That’s a fact.
Until next time everyone,
BE A BILLIKEN.
