Hello! My name is Nicole and I'm from Los Angeles. I am a junior studying Public Health with a minor in biology at Saint Louis University. Fun fact: I was born on New Year's Day! Check out my blog for more on my life as a Billiken.
Ask Me About SLU
It’s springtime here in Saint Louis and beautiful flowers are blooming all around campus!
I am planning to do an upcoming video blog answering questions that any future Billikens might have.
Send in your questions by commenting on this post and check back to see a video blog posted featuring the questions that you have sent in!
I encourage you to ask anything that is on your mind because this is a great time to voice out anything you might be curious or concerned about, and get a more detailed look of what life really is like being a Billiken! I am looking forward to your questions!
Hello everyone! Spring break is over and Billikens are getting back into the groove of things with the second half of the semester left.
Over break, I was humbled to attend the SLU Greek Mission Trip 2014 with amazing staff and students. We partnered up with the Appalachia Service Project at the Jonesville Center in Virginia. Nevertheless, I learned how to use power tools (scary) and created long-lasting friendships!
It was definitely rewarding and refreshing to see the students from different Greek chapters come together and serve with full hearts.
In addition congratulations to the SLU Men’s Basketball Team for their amazing victory over North Carolina State in their first NCAA March Madness game!
School has been picking up, snow has been falling, and I am starting to once again immerse myself into the busy, yet wonderful life as a SLU student.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the AFLV Central Conference in Indianapolis with the Panhellenic, Inter-fraternal, and Multi-Cultural Executive Greek Councils.
We were able to listen to amazing speakers, connect with members of our own fraternity and sorority, and of course represent Saint Louis University at this year’s conference.
AFLV is a leadership conference for Greek council members from around the country . Each and every one of us have attended multiple sessions ranging from Greeks involved with social justice to a simple idea such as being a great leader. Nevertheless, I had a wonderful time and have also learned a lot through collaborations from speakers and fellow Greek members around the country.
I cannot wait to implement and share my ideas with the fantastic Greek members here at SLU!
I wanted to share this awesome picture of some of the leaders in our Greek community. Chapter presidents, chapter delegates, and executive council members attended the Greek Organizational Leadership Developmental retreat, or also known as the “GOLD” retreat this past weekend.
At the retreat, I was able to connect with people I met for the first time or have met before on a more deeper level. As the Internal Vice President for the Panhellenic Executive Council, I learned some important values of what it means to not only be an effective leader in the Greek community, but to be a resource and a supporter to all members of Greek Life.
The retreat taught me so much and it also allowed me to learn from the other leaders of the Greek community so that I may lead effectively for the 2014 year.
I am proud to be a member of Greek Life here at Saint Louis University.
Hello Billikens! This is my first 2014 post and I had the pleasure of attending the 2014 Public Health Global Brigade with the wonderful SLU community. It was truly a life changing experience that I would never forget. I documented the trip. Take a look and enjoy!
The school year has ended and summer has begun. I like to say it was a memorable year and I thank SLU for another amazing year full of great memories with wonderful friends. Cheers to a fantastic year and more years to come!
The game was wild. Our bodies shaking with excitement as the Bills were up by 20 points against VCU who was previously the #1 ranked team in the A10 Conference, but that all changed when the buzzer went off indicating set, match, and game.
The Bills are now the #1 ranked team in the A10 conference which is such a thrill!
It was truly an amazing experience and I think most Billikens would agree that the energy from our community and the constant support for our Bills was a major part of the game.
Nevertheless, the Bills will be taking on Butler this Friday as visitor and it will truly be the most difficult game of the season. In the previous game, SLU defeated #9 Butler which was also a great game and this Friday will be sort of a re-match for the two teams.
I’m proud to be a Billken not only because of our amazing men’s basketball team, but the fact that this wonderful community constantly supports each other at so many diverse events on campus. If I could, I would go to every single event! That’s a fact.
