The Saint Louis University Athletic Training Society (SLATS) was awarded a full charter from the SLU Student Government Association (SGA). With the advent of the Athletic Training Education Program the student association was reactivated from and older group that was inactive. SLATS applied for reactivation and went through a short probationary period. They were fully chartered on April 1, 2009. All SLU Athletic Training Students are eligible for SLATS, which has 40 members in this, its first year.
