Casual breakout sessions at SLU 101 give new students a chance to get to know one another and develop a sense for the community that they'll be living in for the next few years.

Discovering You at SLU

SLU 101 summer orientation is your first opportunity to live life as a college student. The student program for summer 2020 will be a combined experience of online orientation modules to complete and a two-day virtual, real-time SLU 101 session that provides an honest look at life at SLU and sets you up for success from the start.

We’ve packed the experience with all the information you’ll need to prepare for your first semester at SLU. As such, we expect all incoming students to attend. Specifically, through SLU 101 summer orientation you will:

  • Learn about academic expectations and available support services at SLU.
  • Explore ways to get involved with campus organizations and activities.
  • Work with advisers to map out a fall class schedule.
  • Meet new friends.

You’ll feel welcome among your fellow freshmen. You’ll get excited about what lies ahead. And most importantly, you’ll kick off your life at SLU with confidence.

It may take 48 hours or more for your enrollment deposit to be recognized in the system before you are able to sign up for a SLU 101 session.

Please note that each session date has a limited capacity. We can not accommodate student "walk-ins" for the program; you must have submitted a SLU 101 reservation to be able to participate in the program. 

SLU 101 summer orientation is still planned for summer 2020, but it will not be an in-person program. 

Students, please sign up for a SLU 101 session date to ensure that you still receive information for summer orientation. The SLU 101 sessions will be a virtual experience. You will also receive additional orientation information through an online platform before and after your SLU 101 session. 

Parents and families, orientation information will be shared with you through an online platform in mid-June rather than during your student's SLU 101 session dates. Parents and families will also have the option to attend some virtual presentations in late June through mid-July.
