Experience: Baltimore

Experience: Baltimore is a 4-day immersion program for incoming first-year Loyola students held annually in August before classes begin.  Beyond the campus, and through different lenses, students learn about Baltimore’s unique and colorful neighborhoods that reveal the heart, spirit, and diversity of our city’s residents through service, volunteering, educational activities, and engaging conversations. 

Apply and sign up for Experience: Baltimore through Pre-Fall programs during registration for Orientation.

Loyola rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors can apply to be a student leader for this experience. Student leader applications will be available in the spring semester. Contact immersions@loyola.edu for more information. 


Spring Break Outreach

Spring Breach Outreach (SBO) is a week-long service immersion program held during Loyola’s spring break that provides students, faculty and Loyola employees a chance to learn about social justice issues in Baltimore and in communities throughout the U.S. through first-hand experiences. Each year, the program features locations with community partners across the U.S., each focusing on a different social justice issue.

Project U.S.

Project U.S. is a week-long educational immersion program which offers students, faculty and Loyola employees a unique opportunity to learn about immigration by spending a week in an immigrant community in Apopka, Florida. Through hands-on experiences such as working in the fields, homestays with immigrant families, and interactive workshops by the staff of the Hope Community Center, participants gain a broad understanding of the realities and culture of this vibrant community, as well as the complexities of the immigration system. In 2018, Project. U.S. will be held during Loyola's academic Spring Break.
