Student Engagement

Sophomore Year

Who am I? What should I major in? What am I meant to do with my life?
Should I study abroad? Where? Who are my real friends?

These are only a few of the many questions you will find yourself asking this year. The Office of Student Engagement, in partnership with a number of other campus departments, provides many resources and opportunities designed to help you make the most of your sophomore year at Loyola.
