Find. Ignite. Reflect. Serve. Transition.

F.I.R.S.T. provides First-Year students the experience of beginning the college journey through the lenses of prayer, reflection and Jesuit identity. We invite students of all faith traditions, spiritual practices, and beliefs to encounter God, self and others through diverse interfaith and justice encounters. Students will navigate the adventures of college through interactive challenges, dialogue and group processing. F.I.R.S.T. participants will begin their first year having already experienced a glimpse of Ignatian Spirituality, the Evergreen campus, life in Baltimore, and the Loyola family.

Program Content Includes:

  • Interfaith Cooperation and Dialogue
  • Racial and Social Justice
  • Inclusion and Equity
  • Power, Privilege and Oppression
  • Relationship Building and Community Development
