About us

Orientation is the key to unlocking all that Loyola has to offer when you arrive on campus this fall. And as a staff, we're committed to helping start your Loyola Experience on the right foot.

Throughout your first year, you'll focus on academics and building community. All of this begins with orientation: meeting new friends, registering for classes, learning about student activities, and getting a firsthand feel for college life.

We're looking forward to meeting you. In the meantime, get to know us!
