Visit and Tour
There’s no better way to learn about Loyola than to experience it firsthand. We invite you to explore our 80 green acres and classically collegiate buildings that make up our beautiful campus and meet members of our community. Once you set foot on the picturesque Evergreen Campus, it will be hard to imagine spending four years anywhere else.
Information sessions and campus tours are available most weekdays and select Saturdays year-round. These introductory visits provide a general overview of Loyola to students and their families.
Prospective students are invited to join admission and financial aid representatives for essay writing or financial aid workshops on select Wednesdays throughout the summer. The workshops are offered in the afternoon from 2 - 3 p.m., followed by a campus tour from 3 - 4 p.m. These interactive workshops are separate from the general admission information sessions and offer students the opportunity to learn more about these important steps of the college application process.
Offered in the fall for prospective students and in the spring for admitted high school seniors and transfer students, open houses are our most comprehensive visit opportunity.
Prospective students and families can participate in online chats with Loyola faculty, students, and staff to learn about a variety of topics, from academics and career services, to student life, financial aid, and studying abroad. These webinar-style chats are offered throughout the year and recordings of the chats are posted after each event for you to watch if you can't attend the live events.
Whether you are preparing for your visit, or can’t make it in person, use this virtual walking tour to explore our beautiful campus with 360 panoramic images, photos, videos, and optional commentary from student guides.
Shadow Days are a great way for prospective high school seniors and transfer students to experience life on campus as a Greyhound. These programs are offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and are an ideal visit option for students who previously visited campus or are in the final stages of making their college decision. Students will attend a class taught by a Loyola professor, meet with current students, and take a personalized tour of campus.
Loyola welcomes chaperoned groups for campus tours on most weekdays. The tour will be led by a current Loyola student and will typically feature the academic quad, dining facilities, library, a classroom, and a residence hall. The tour will last 45-60 minutes.
