Earth Hour

Each year Loyola participate in Earth Hour by dimming unnecessary lights and reflecting on our actions that impact our energy footprint. 

Earth Hour is a global activity with over events taking place in over 170 countries.  At Loyola, the campus community unites in the collective work for everyone to be mindful of energy consumption.

  • Students gather on the shores of Lake Michigan to observe the dimming of campus lights
  • Students hold candle-light gatherings on outdoor campus locations
  • Reducing the energy load in the residence halls, students and RAs take the time to gather and discuss climate change and energy topics
  • You can register your actions or be inspired by other's actions at www.earthhour.org
