Club Sports Allocation Presentations

In the month of March, club sports become very active both on and off the field with competition. On the field, many of our outdoor sports are competing most weekend. Friendly competition begins between teams at Loyola as they work to propose the best financial allocation pitch to secure funds for the next year. Teams are asked to reflect on their budget from the current fiscal year and consider hopeful future endeavors as a team before making the most financially responsible request for their future budget allocations. They are then tasked with giving a 10-15min presentation on how they plan to use funding.

Career Center - Career Accelerator

Career Accelerator is a 3.5 day pre-fall program involving career exploration, career treks, and a day of service in the Baltimore community. By the end of the program, students will be able to identify their interests, values, and strengths; articulate what the career exploration process involves; demonstrate the roles that their own self-attributes play in their career exploration; construct a basic resume and a plan for next steps; cultivate a peer network of other students in similar career phases; and recognize the value of serving others as a foundational career theme.
