Common Text Events

Each year, the University chooses a Common Text for all first-year students to read before arriving at Loyola. In addition to discussing Picture of the book cover to Sarah Smarsh's Heartland this Common Text with your academic advisor and other students enrolled in your Messina course during Welcome Weekend, Messina sponsors events throughout the year to address themes raised by the book. 

Information regarding events associated with Heartland: A Memoir about Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth will be available in late August 2019. 

If you are a member of the Loyola community who has an idea for an event associated with the Common Text, please visit our co-sponsorships page and submit an event proposal. 

Persons with disabilities who may require special services should contact the Office of Disability Support Services at 410-617-2062 at least 48 hours prior to the event. As noted below, some of these events are free and open to the public.
