Loyola Community,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the annual University Christmas Reception. We’ll celebrate on Wednesday, December 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Damen Student Center on our Lake Shore Campus.

At the reception, mingle with fellow Loyolans under the University’s beautiful Christmas tree, enjoy food and drink, listen to strolling carolers, take holiday-themed pictures with friends in a photo booth, watch magicians mesmerize, win big through the annual raffle giveaway, and visit with Santa Claus!
