Last week, I was fortunate enough to travel with dozens of other SLU students to Washington, D.C., for the pro-life march. It was my sixth time enduring the grueling 16-hour bus ride and marching around in the cold for hours, simply to let our government know where I stand on the abortion issue. Having go...

"For young people, this widespread involvement [in volunteer work] constitutes a school of life which offers them a formation in solidarity and in readiness to offer others not simply material aid but their very selves." We agree with the Pope. We focus, in this institution, on the education of the...

To the Editor: When the second semester started here at Saint Louis University, I returned on the earliest day possible, which was Jan. 13.  The first day of classes, which was Jan. 17, I was passing the mailboxes inside Griesedieck Hall to go to class.  I noticed that there was a bulletin bo...

To the Editor: Recently, The University News published my commentary "The SLU Mission in Action: The Five Dimensions."

It was an ordinary weekday; I walked into the Shell station to get a Slurpee. However, when I got into line, I noticed how unusually crowded it was. As I watched the girl in front of me buy a pack of Camel Lights, I heard the cashier say, "Now if you take this pack right back there to that man, he'll ge...

The SLU Mission in Action: The Five Dimensions

Filed under Commentary

If one were to ask, "What is the fundamental purpose of a Saint Louis University education?" the likely answer would be, "To become men and women for others." While this response would be true on one level, it would not explain how a SLU education produces its desired result. One way in which the University...

Ah, New Year's. A time for new beginnings. A time to start fresh, ready to blaze the trail to a better life.

Essentially,...

I remember when I was in elementary school and I would look forward to Christmas all through the first semester. There was always a boatload of stuff that I would want. I would have a nice long list, chock full of predictable things like a Red Ryder Ranger Model Air Rifle. Now in my old age of 19,...

To the Editor: I can't lie, I wont deny it - of the four years that I have spent here at SLU, only this year have I really gotten into our watching and supporting our sports teams. It is a commonly known fact, although not openly admitted, that our school is widely apathetic. I am not here to write...
