Overview

Saint Louis Christian College says

The campus of Saint Louis Christian College is located in Florissant, Missouri, one mile west of the intersection of West Florissant Ave. and Interstate 270, and one-half mile east of the intersection of Washington/Elizabeth and Interstate 270. The College is located in a comfortable suburban setting just 20 minutes from downtown St. Louis and the city's impressive array of cultural and recreational opportunities. Students enjoy both the vitality of the city of St. Louis and the safety of a suburb that is rated the safest community of comparable size in the state of Missouri and in the top 20 safest in the United States. The College's 31-acre campus includes men's and women's residence halls and campus apartments, as well as educational and recreational facilities. Offices, classrooms (several equipped with "smart" technology), gymnasium and fitness center, coffee house and cafeteria, chapel building, baseball field, and tennis courts, are among the campus's most attractive features. Students also have access to hiking trails on a nature preserve and a soccer field on property adjacent to the SLCC campus. "The Hundred", a Student Learning Center located in the Keystone Building, is available to all students for placement testing, academic counseling, and peer tutoring. The college has established an extension and residential internship site in the St. Louis inner-city facility owned by the North City Church of Christ. The North City site is located in the Mark Twain neighborhood, between Belfontaine Cemetery and Interstate 70. This educational facility permits students to study urban missions and church planting in a "front-line" setting. The Saint Louis Christian College Library furnishes a wide range of resources and services to support students' study, faculty research, and area ministries. In January 1997, the library moved into new facilities in Presidents Hall, providing room for physical growth as well as permitting expansion of electronic technologies. A well-lit, relaxing atmosphere enhances student study at tables or individual carrels, and a lounge area accommodates more informal reading. A well-equipped computer media laboratory gives students access to software used to complete coursework and also permits faculty to downlink satellite broadcasts for instructional purposes. The library itself contains approximately 41,000 volumes and subscribes to 150 periodicals. Its special collections include a sizable number of nineteenth century religious works as well as the James E. Redden Collection of anthropology and linguistic materials. Additionally, the library houses approximately 16,000 microforms, 3,000 audiotapes, 400 videotapes, and other print and non-print educational resources. Audiovisual equipment is made available for in-house use of these materials or loaned to students involved in ministry. The College library provides wireless access to many online research sources. SLCC is one of 75 institutional members of MOREnet (Missouri Research & Educational Network). This consortium provides access to EBSOhost Online periodical database, which features electronic access to standard encyclopedias, an atlas, Bible study software, in addition to many full-text periodicals. The College also subscribes to the ATLA (American Theological Library Association) Religion Database, providing students with a wide range of search capabilities in breaking news, business, health, military, and religious information. Because the college is a member of the St. Louis Regional Library Network, SLCC students also have easy access to the resources of most libraries, both public and academic, throughout the metropolitan area.
