iLEAD, Leading with others

The iLEAD: Servant Leadership Experience empowers students throughout their college career to aspire to affect both immediate and long-term change in order to transform their community and the lives of the marginalized in our society. We do this through the intentional formation of students into becoming servant leaders and agents of local and global social change.

The iLEAD: Servant Leadership Experience embodies the University mission by engaging undergraduate students at Saint Louis University in the transformation of society and serving with and for their community through their development as agents of local and global social change.

A progressively challenging Servant Leadership experience, students engage in the iLEAD: Servant Leadership Experience throughout their college years within three phases.

Learn more about how to get involved with servant leadership, and what it means, at the information session on September 18 at 5:30pm in the BSC St Louis Room

Billiken Club is BACK!

You read that right! After a short break, the Billiken Club is BACK! Grant Nikseresht, general manager of KSLU and the main man responsible for the Billiken Club, talked with The University News to talk about this years return of arts and entertainment to the Busch Student Center

“…the Billiken Club had to take a short hiatus in 2012 after budget cuts. Last semester they started ramping up again with some open mic nights at the venue, which is tucked away where the tables of Salsarita’s typically stand. Finally they got the green light financially from the Student Government Association Association (SGA) to resume this fall.

On the stage first will be No Age, a noise rock duo out of L.A. Trauma Harness and Ghost Ice will round out the set list and guarantee the first night back will be huge. It all happens Sept. 16 with doors opening at 8:00pm and the concert at 9:00pm…”
