"Students for Life as a whole, and especially through the work of the Pregnant and Parenting Student Assistance committee, works to build a culture at SLU that supports life from conception to natural death...Through our endowment and tangible goals on campus, like lactation suites, we are able to build a culture of life not just in support of the unborn, but for the mothers, fathers, and their children. Our hope is that thorough this continuous building of a culture of life, women experience real support, which makes the decision to have a child easier, as resources are available to parents, and, more importantly, SLU is a warm and open place for pregnant and parenting students." - Allie Lombardo
