The Professors are helpful, the food good, the campus is very nice. However, nothing can make up for the fact that this school is a complete drunkfest. The dorms are out of control, the students drink and drug themselves unconscious (almost 50 kids a year are brought to the emergency room unconscious). The administration knows this but is afraid to confront the issue and lose enrollment dollars. They will tell you this without hesitation. It is a horrible place for anyone with self respect to have to live at for 4 years. If you go here, be careful, it can be very dangerous . There is no campus police, just security, and as much as possible is handled in-house without being reported.
Starting at the top with the Administration and flowing down to Department Heads and Professors is a general lack of respect, concern, and genuine belief in students. Many reviews of SLU will reference the arrogance of the students but it is the Administration and faculty who set the vibe of indifference, trudging along with little willingness or ability to view things fresh. North Country mentality! It seems like many professors resent that the are "stuck" at SLU or have become numb to their responsibilities to help students. Or the community is just too small to rock the boat. Whatever the reasons for the indifference,a SLU education is too damn expensive for these factors to still be at play in higher education.
If I had the opportunity to attend another school I definitely would. The students and faculty are extremely stand offish to those who look different. It is an extremely preppy school and it's filled with ignorant, close minded people. the university should really have more information on diversity for the students since they clearly know nothing about it. SLU is not the place for me and seriously -- save yourself the trouble of attending. I know not everyone there is like that but the majority of the people are. the town of canton doesn't provide much besides the tick tock which students frequent every weekend. the parties have to end at 2 am and the food is terrible. the dorms are too small and they're not that attractive looking.
