Messina Modules are a series of facilitation guides and resource documents designed by Loyola departments and offices for use in Messina enrichment sessions. Modules provide working groups engaging activities and up-to-date information regarding a variety of first-year transition issues.
To view the modules, click on a title listed below. Please note that you may be asked to enter your Loyola username and password. You will be directed to the Messina Working Groups Teams site where you will find all documents related to that module in the Files section. If the link doesn't initially take you directly to the module folder, reload this module webpage. Clicking on a module link will now take you to the correct module folder.
If your office would like to create a new module, or if you have ideas for future modules, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that for consistency, all new modules need to be created in our Messina Module Template.
Messina appreciates the work of our Office Assistants Natalia Medina Lozada ('23) and Julia Smith ('24) who reviewed and edited all listed module resources to ensure Universal Accessibility.
