Ghost Tour

The Ghost Tour takes place every October and is a walk through the historical Mt. Vernon (or Fed Hill and Fell's Point areas depending on year).

According to Tour Baltimore's website, "Mount Vernon, Baltimore's cultural center, may be more "spirited" than you think. Admire the architecture while tour guides regale you with the history and haunted lore of this striking neighborhood that was home to many of Baltimore's leading citizens. Hear about the ghosts who have never checked out of the Belvedere, a séance gone wrong, and more than one grand dame who still oversees the activities of her home. Join us for an exciting tour that pulls back the curtain and peers into the other side.(Tour Baltimore, Website)" You definitely don't want to miss this haunted event.

Siblings Weekend

RHA is once again proud to present Siblings Weekend tentatively scheduled for the weekend of Friday, April 11 - Sunday, April 13, 2014. This weekend is designed for the brothers and/or sisters of Loyola students to come and visit on campus with their siblings. Please be aware that siblings must be between 5 and 17 years of age. Also, there are no official meals scheduled for Friday or Saturday. Students and siblings must make their own arrangements during these times. Our campus dining locations will have regular weekend dining hours. Concerning on-campus accommodations, siblings will stay overnight in the room of the host student. Students who are hosting siblings of the opposite gender will need to find a student friend (of the same gender as their siblings) who is willing to host their siblings. If this is not feasible, hotel accommodations with family members are recommended. For nearby hotels that offers discounts to Loyola families, students and alumni, click here.
