Once you arrive at SLU
You likely have a dozen questions about what you can expect while studying abroad at an American university. We understand that. What will housing be like? What classes will you take? How will you meet domestic and international students? Orientation at SLU answers all your questions. It also provides a safety net for your first days on campus. Let us guide you through the new student journey, with services available to help you get settled.
