Loyola's New Student Orientation for freshman students is a mandatory two-day program that is comprised of sessions to introduce you to what life is like at Loyola. During Orientation, you will learn about the many programs and services that are available to you as a Loyola student. You will meet with an academic advisor and register for your Fall semester courses.
Orientation leaders, who are upper-class students, will share their Loyola Experience with you, answer your questions, and do their best to ensure your smooth transition into the Loyola community!
