Loyola University Maryland



Welcome Class of 2023!

Messina is designed to help all incoming first-year commuter and residential students acclimate quickly and easily to social and academic life at Loyola. Learn more about what your first year at Loyola will be like in Messina from this video:  Messina & Your First Year.  You may also view the various themes and course pairings available to students for the 2019-2020 academic year on our website

You may access the Messina registration survey through this link.  In order to complete the survey, you will need your Loyola username and password.   Once you are in the survey, you will share some information about your academic interests.  At that point, you can either choose to select 5-10 Messina course pairings that interest you or you can indicate that you would like the Messina Office to select an appropriate course pairing based on your academic interests.   

All students who complete the survey by May 30th will have an equal chance of receiving a preferred Messina course pairing.  Students submitting preferences after May 30th will be placed in a preference (if possible) based on date and time of submission.  Students will be notified of their Messina course pairing during Summer Orientation.

For questions concerning Messina or submitting course pairing preferences, visit out Frequently Asked Questions page or contact the Messina Office at 410-617-2669 or messina@loyola.edu
