Saint Leo University To Host Training Camp For Toronto Raptors

ST. LEO, FL — Saint Leo University announced the Toronto Raptors will use the university’s Marion Bowman Activities Center as the site of their 2020-21 pre-season training camp.

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — When Saint Louis University’s fall semester classes end on Tuesday, Nov. 24, the University will have successfully completed its on-campus semester as planned and without changes in its hybrid instruction model or on-campus living.

The University decided last summer to begin classes a week early, on Aug. 17, and end classes Thanksgiving week, with final exams taking place online the week of Nov. 30.

Pestello, Ph.D. “But most important in SLU’s successful fall semester has been the willingness of our students, faculty and staff to make essential adjustments, follow campus safeguards and care for each other.”
