The Office of Student Engagement and The SGA Senior Assembly have partnered on a new initiative titled "Life After Loyola." This is a virtual & "Master Class" inspired series for seniors preparing to transition out of Loyola. These tutorials feature Loyola’s own expert faculty and staff. Topics cover the graduate school search and selection process, personal financial management, housing selection after graduation, and strategies for purposeful living and civic engagement in new communities. Be sure to visit our website periodically. New series will be launched throughout the year!
