Students in grades 5 through 9 from across the St. Louis area flocked to St. Louis U. High last Sunday for the annual Open House. More than 300 families received tours, saw a wide range of clubs and activities, and interacted with many of the roughly 400 SLUH students present. The Admissions Department hoped to give prospective families a look into the various ways SLUH students can be involved and supported in their school community.
This week was rife with political activity, and over the weekend students from St. Louis U. High had the opportunity to be part of the commotion.

At Pentecost, the Holy Spirit breathed upon the Apostles and tongues of fire appeared over their heads. However, despite the chapel being a religious space, St. Louis U.
