Create the future

This is it—your final year of undergraduate studies at Loyola. You’ve come a long way since your first year on campus, and now you’re ready to chart a path for your future. But it’s also a time to look back and reflect upon your Loyola experience and how your four years here have prepared you for the rest of your life.

Goals for the year

Reflect upon the meaning of your college experience with mentors as you clarify your post-graduation plans.
Complete academic degree requirements and act on career or graduate school plans.
Engage with professional communities within your chosen vocations and interests.
Synthesize and apply your knowledge through your capstone course, research, and independent study.
Formulate a plan on how you can give back to the community.

You’re almost there: Commencement will be here before you know it.

In the Jesuit tradition,reflection is a three-fold process that involves paying attention to your experiences, using the head and heart to understand their meanings, and deciding how to act.

  • What is your plan for the future?
  • How are you integrating the knowledge, skills, and values learned to lead an extraordinary life?
  • How did you grow in your first three years, and how do you hope to grow in your fourth year?
