A Call for Funny Stories About Cancer
John Milford '74 was diagnosed with Oligodendroglia, a cancerous brain tumor that required surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy in 2009. In the midst of his struggle with the disease, he found that humor gave him hope and strength. John wrote to SLUH and said, "I enjoy writing, I think I am funny, and I want to give back in some way to the medical support community for all the help I received in my fight against cancer. So I decided to publish a book, collecting funny stories about cancer treatment." All profits will be donated to the Cancer Support Community of Greater St. Louis (http://www.cancersupportstl.org/). >>> CLICK HERE (docx, 14.26KB) for more information about the project, including how you might contribute a story.
Small Business Incubator
Over the last couple of years, SLUH students have taken part in several activities related to business and entrepreneurship. The school has partnered with alumni in some of these activities and is currently looking to expand this partnership with graduates to serve as mentors and advisors to student entrepreneurs.
Alumni support is vital to helping keep SLUH available to the best young men in St. Louis regardless of their economic circumstances. Learn more about the need for your support by clicking 'Annual Giving' in the left-hand navigation pane, or by clicking here.
Seeking Historic SLUH Artifacts and Stories
200th Anniversary of SLUH is approaching in 2018
A group of alumni volunteers has undertaken a project to celebrate the 200 year history of St. Louis University High School in 2018. They are seeking artifacts, photos, stories, etc. that help tell the story of our rich tradition and history. They will be reaching out to alumni from all classes late this summer for documents/artifacts which can be either donated to the school, loaned, or copied to become part of the archives. These items would be: (a) anything of historical significance in the life of the school – in picture, print, artifact, etc.; (b) information about yourself, classmates, relatives who have attended SLUH – whether it relates to a career in business, the arts, medicine, education, or social or humanitarian service to others – something that will leave a lasting impression on people. Be thinking about this and look for the call for your input later this summer.

Alumni Happy Hour
On the first Thursday of each month, alumni gather at a local establishment to reconnect, network and enjoy time with one another. We typically gather at a restaurant or bar owned by a SLUH family. The location is posted a week or two in advance each month on the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SLUHigh). "Like" us on Facebook to receive the updates.
Alumni Service Corps
The ASC (www.alumservicecorps.org) is looking for SLUH alumni who have a desire to commit a year of service in gratitude for their Jesuit education, men who are willing "to give and not to count the cost." ASC volunteers serve as faculty members in Jesuit high schools teaching classes, coaching, leading retreats, moderating clubs, and more.
Recent college graduates interested in an experience of service in the Jesuit tradition are encouraged to apply. Visit the Applying section on the ASC site to complete the online application, or e-mail Sean Agniel at email@example.com to learn more.
