The Light of SLU Shines Bright

Dear members of the Saint Louis University Community, 

The trials of the past month have challenged our community in ways most of us would never have imagined possible. As you left your residence halls and locked your offices, an emptiness filled our campus. 

As we prepare to celebrate the joy of Easter Sunday, I miss you and I and will continue missing you until we can be together again. 

Until that time comes, I invite you to watch the video below and remember that there is much to sustain us.  

 The loss that I and so many others are feeling, has pushed us to recall the love we have for one another and to recognize the resilience of our storied university. 

Though we may not be together physically; the light of Saint Louis University continues to burn bright in each one of you– no matter where you are on this planet. 

And to ensure you remember that, we will light up Griesedieck every night in honor of our essential workers, our healthcare providers, and you all, who continue to work toward a higher purpose and greater good during these difficult times 

I look forward to our reunion. 

We are OneSLU. 

Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D.
