I am from a small town in Illinois, about 40 miles east of
Saint Louis. During the school year I live in Saint Louis
because I attend Saint Louis University. Amber, a few words
of wisdom if you plan on visiting SLU: the campus is in a
dangerous and sometimes dirty part of the city. Don't walk
around at night by yourself - two feet off campus in any
direction can prove to be dangerous. I'm not trying to worry
you at all, but I think you should be aware that it really
is a bad area. I don't think the city is too keen on
vegetarian gourmet, however I believe there is a vegetarian
restaurant just across the street from SLU, although the
name escapes me at the moment. Good Luck!!
