Dear Parents,

As we near the spring season, campus will come alive with outdoor events and students congregating on the Quad. We've had some warm, sunny days in Baltimore, and students are eager for more.

We are encouraging students to take advantage of program offerings through the remainder of the academic year. Leadership Café is a monthly meeting where a special guest shares leadership journey stories and experiences. The next Leadership Café will be March 22.

We are also planning a Rising Sophomore Festival, dates to be announced, to help promote the programs and events for sophomores. The rising sophomores will have a chance to sign up for their first Mystery Bus, as well as a chance at giveaways and prizes.

As always, we are continuing our Late Night program events. Each week, events for the weekend are posted to the Late Night website. For other events and updates from departments on campus, read our announcements section.

Please remind your student to get the flu vaccine. Influenza season is still ongoing, and students traveling for the break are at increased risk of exposure. The vaccine is available at the Student Health Center.

I’ll close with a save the date: our Spring Career Fair is scheduled for April 5 from 12-3 p.m. in Reitz Arena. Please encourage your student to begin preparing for it now. This career fair is an incredible opportunity for Loyola undergraduate students to engage with employers from a wide range of industries, offering full-time and part-time employment as well as internships.

Wishing you a lovely spring,

Sheilah Shaw Horton, Ph.D.
Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Students
