During Orientation, you will learn about the many programs and services that are available to you as a Loyola student, 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!
