Join fellow classmates at Alumni Weekend’s Loyola under the Stars! While lounging lakeside on the East Quad spend the evening reconnecting and reminiscing with friends as you look back on your shared college days.
The number one reason alumni attend their reunion is to see friends. A call, e-mail, or letter from a classmate goes a long way towards generating a buzz and ensuring good attendance. Use social media to keep momentum building all year; post updates to your Facebook group or tweet new registrants!
