There are four steps to the application process:
Step One: Educate yourself—Take a look at the expectations and qualifications, look at the job descriptions, take a look at the essay questions.
Step Two: Prayerful discernment. Make sure that you have prayed on the decision to apply. This role is not a "student leader" position only, it is also a "student minister" role which challenges students to lead others in claiming their faith and evangelizing the Loyola community.
