Welcome to Graduate, Professional & Adult Student Life! We seek to enhance the collaboration between our own Division of Student Development and all colleges, schools, and institutes at Loyola to enhance the graduate, professional, and adult student experience.
Water Tower Campus Life, as we were previously known, was charged in 2013 with focusing upon graduate, professional, and adult students. The department had always tailored its programs for Water Tower Campus students in general, but the new charge gave stronger emphasis to graduate, professional, and adult students. Our department continues to sponsor programs that include undergraduate students, such as the Water Tower Campus Block Party and President’s Ball. But, the bulk of our programs are oriented towards Graduate, Professional, and Adult students.
Our department name was changed as of August 1, 2016 to Graduate, Professional, and Adult Student Life (GPASL) to better describe our primary focus.
We are located in the Terry Student Center and have a close working relationship with Water Tower Campus Ministry, the Wellness Center (with satellite offices on the second floor of Terry Student Center), the Fitness Studio, and, of course, Baumhart Hall in the 22 stories above us. LU’s Deli and the Bookstore are also located in the Terry Student Center.
We encourage you to stop by the visit us. We hope to see you on the second and third floor of the Terry Student Center!
Jack McLean, JD
Assistant Vice President of Student Development
