Welcome Class of 2028!

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

The Messina Preference Survey

All members of the Class of 2028 should complete the Messina Preference Survey. Information about the survey will be sent to your student e-mail account. You can access the survey through this website. 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.

Themes and Course Pairings for the 2024-25 academic year available for review!

The Messina Preference Survey is now open! Click the green button below to access the survey. You will need your Loyola ID in order to access the survey. This number can be found in your Loyola Technology Letter you received when you first deposited, or in the email you received from Messina with information about the survey.

(Please note that after May 14 there may be a short delay between receiving your Techology Letter and being able to access the survey, but please reach out to Messina if you are unable to access the survey more than one business day following the receipt of your letter.)

Messina Course Pairing Survey

All students who complete the survey by Friday, May 31, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. 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. Starting in July, you will also have a chance to review and make changes (if necessary) to your fall course schedule with an academic advisor.
