Building Community: It is one of the three strategic objectives of the University's department of athletics, and one that Saint Louis University student-athletes embrace.
Billiken student-athletes are committed to the Jesuit tradition of community service and take to heart the importance of enhancing the lives of others. They are generous with their time and take great pride in volunteering for worthy endeavors such as assisting those who are less fortunate, serving as positive role models for children and raising money for important causes. This past year, Billiken student-athletes performed countless hours of community service.
SLU students and staff have helped benefit a myriad of charities and organizations. A sampling is as follows: Special Needs Soccer Association (SPENSA), Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure, America SCORES, Special Olympics, American Cancer Society Cancer Walk, Keen Shelter, Karen House, Demetrius Johnson Charitable Foundation, Magic House Fitness Friday, Turkey Trot, SLU Make a Difference Day, Habitat for Humanity and SLU Campus Kitchen.
