Second-Year Experience

Student Life & Engagement



As a result of participating in Second Year Experience programs, Loyola second year students will:

  • Build and sustain relationships with peers, faculty, and/or staff in order to gain resources and support towards achieving their academic and vocational goals.
  • Develop skills to describe their vocation as it relates to their unique values, passions, and skills.
  • Articulate their career and vocational goals and describe how their academic major relates with these goals.
  • List co-curricular and academic learning opportunities outside the classroom that can contribute to knowledge and skill acquisition that applies to academic and career-oriented pursuits.
