What's a Saluki?

What's a Saluki?

At SIU, the saluki is a collective spirit that defines our culture in our hometown and in the hearts of our proud alumni. Oh, and a saluki is a dog, too.

This is where we work. This is where we learn. This is where we create. This is where we achieve.

This is where we come to play. Where we bleed maroon. Where Salukis become Dawgs.

Being a Saluki means more than going to class, attending athletic events and hanging out on campus. It means dedicating yourself to your passion. It's a lifelong designation that starts you down the path of success.
