Academic Support Center
Arrupe students benefit from a 25:1 student-advisor ratio and a robust faculty advising model. Our faculty advisors offer unparalleled, individualized attention and support to students as they traverse new challenges, chart curricular pathways, and apply to transfer into four-year institutions towards the end their Arrupe experience.
Students can expect to meet with their faculty advisor at least twice a month either in a small group or one-on-one. Students are encouraged to schedule additional appointments in person, over email, or by phone. No student should feel as though they are navigating these critical first few years of college alone; Arrupe’s academic advising framework ensures they don’t have to.
The Tutoring Center
Loyola’s Center for Tutoring and Academic Excellence (CTAE) works alongside Arrupe College to offer on site tutoring free-of-charge. Tutoring takes place in Maguire Hall, Begich Center, 140 Break Out Rooms.
Jesuit Scholastics (young men studying to become Jesuit priests) are available for tutoring as well. Please stop by Maguire room 226 Thursday or Friday mornings to talk writing, history, theology, or philosophy.
Can’t find what you’re looking for? The CTAE invites Arrupe students to attend tutoring a short 20-minute shuttle ride away on Loyola’s Lakeshore campus. Students can search and sign-up for specific tutoring appointments via TutorTrac:
Students who feel as though the need help developing time management strategies, study skills, and other executive functions can sign-up to meet regularly with an Academic Coach. Coaches are Loyola University graduate students who provide mentoring for students seeking college success. To schedule an appointment, email John Buethe at firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll work with the CTAE to match you with a Coach that fits your personality, interests, and ambitions.
