Open House Campus Community Resource Guide

Welcome to the campus community resource guide for undergraduate admission open house programs! We compiled this information based on common questions we have received from faculty, staff, and administrators who volunteered for our open houses in the past. If you would like us to add additional information to this page, please send an email to admission@loyola.edu and a member of our team will follow up with you.
