Loyola University Maryland

Division of Student Development

Greetings from the Vice President

Sheila Horton

Welcome New Students!

The staff and administrators of the student development division at Loyola University Maryland would like to enthusiastically welcome you to our community. We look forward to meeting you and spending the next four years with you as you learn to develop both inside, and outside of the classroom. You will grow in many ways over your time here and we look forward to helping you achieve all your academic and professional goals.

The division of student development strives to complement the mission and goals of Loyola University Maryland by providing a variety of programs, activities, and services that enhance the educational experience of students while promoting a sense of community among students, faculty, administration, and staff. Central to community building is the concept of cura personalis, or care of the whole person-body, mind and spirit that is inherent in Jesuit education.

Among the many noteworthy programs and services offered by the division are our Fitness and Aquatic Center, that provides many kinds of fitness opportunities for the University community, highly regarded residence hall facilities, and our innovative Loyola Late Night program that meets a growing need among students for on-campus, alcohol-free programming.

My invitation to you is to take advantage of the myriad of opportunities available and the wealth of information and experience housed within our professional staff. Our hope is for the Loyola graduate to leave this community a "man or woman for and with others" who is prepared to "learn, lead and serve in a diverse and changing world."

Sheilah Shaw Horton, Ph.D.

Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Students
