Cheer on the Greyhounds!

One of the best (and most fun!) ways for alumni to engage with Loyola is by cheering on our Greyhounds Athletics teams—in the stands at Ridley Athletic Complex, on the road as they travel for Patriot League and regional play, or even from home with fellow alumni at a watch party!
