Loyola 101

Students and books

Looking for ways to make the most of your college experience—in your first year and all that follow? Consider Loyola 101, a one-credit course offered in the fall semester. This course, which typically meets once per week, offers informal and lively class discussions, off-campus events, and presentations by instructors and guest speakers on resources and opportunities available on campus and throughout Baltimore. Each class section is team-taught by a faculty member (usually your core advisor), a student development team representative, and a student leader.  Residential students enrolled in Loyola 101 will live in Campion Tower and Lange Court - buildings with apartment and suite style housing options.  Loyola 101 is open only to first-year students not enrolled in Messina.

Sample Loyola 101 Course Topics Include:

  • The Best of Baltimore 
  • Getting Involved on Campus
  • Community Service in the Jesuit Tradition
  • Identity Exploration
  • Values Exploration
  • Stress and Time Management
  • Adjusting to life in the residence halls
