A Baltimore native who loves the diversity of the city and the welcoming feel at Loyola, Chris is majoring in Forensic Studies. During his time at the University, he has been involved in many activities on campus, including working as an event coordinator of the Black Student Association (BSA), participating in the annual BSA Fashion Show as a model, and serving as a Save the Children’s Club representative, as an ALANA mentor, and as an Evergreen mentor for new students. He studied abroad during his junior year in Newcastle, England. Chris feels Loyola’s liberal arts education has helped him grow personally and professionally, distinctly preparing him for the real-world: “Career-wise, I will further understand the points of view of others to make an opinion of my own, instead of standing by someone else’s,” says Chris, who has ambitions of working in forensics in crime scene investigation for the CIA or the FBI after he receives his Loyola degree. His advice to students considering Loyola is to embrace the motto, Strong Truths Well Lived: “Your strong truths will inevitably turn you into someone you want to be. The motto finishes with well lived because your truths will ultimately serve as guide for you through the rest of your life.”

Loyola brings about this sense of community and accepts all—no matter what race, religion, gender, sexuality, and/or background people come from. There is a piece of Loyola for everyone.
