Loyola University Maryland


Welcome Class of 2026!

Messina is designed to help all incoming first-year commuter and residential students acclimate quickly and easily to social and academic life at Loyola.

Themes and Course Pairings for the 2022-2023 academic year are available for review on the Messina website in early April.  

Students who have deposited at Loyola will be able to complete the survey beginning on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. The link to the preference survey will be sent via an e-mail to the student's Loyola e-mail account or you may access the survey online. Once you are in the survey, you will share some information about your academic interests. 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.

ACCESS THE MESSINA SURVEY (Available May 10, 2022)

All students who complete the survey by Tuesday, May 31, 2022 will have an equal chance of receiving a preferred Messina course pairing. Students submitting preferences after May 31 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. You will also have a chance to review and make changes (if necessary) to your fall course schedule with an academic advisor.


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