Walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare and Jane Austen on a faculty-led trip to London. Cultivate your voice amongst other aspiring authors and professional authors at the Sandhill Writers Retreat. Try your hand at publishing with Saint Leo’s literary magazine, Sandhill Review, and student newspaper The Lions' Pride.
