Loyola University Maryland



Welcome Class of 2024!

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

Themes and Course Pairings for the 2020-2021 academic year will be posted on the Messina website in mid-March. 

Students who have deposited at Loyola will be able to preference course pairings beginning on Thursday, May 7, 2020.   The link to the preference survey will be sent via an e-mail to the student's Loyola e-mail account.   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 Sunday, May 31st will have an equal chance of receiving a preferred Messina course pairing.  Students submitting preferences after May 31st 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
