Ad Infinitum Sophomore Community

The Ad Infinitum Sophomore Community is an intentional community designed to support you through your sophomore year journey at Loyola University. In a year when students grapple with issues of identity, relationships and academic choices, Ad Infinitum is a place where you can find support from the Office of Student Life, the Office of Student Engagement and your peers. Support comes through a host of community programs addressing issues such as studying abroad, career and internship exploration, strengthening friendships, personal reflection, spiritual guidance and vocational discernment. The goal of Ad Infinitum is simple, yet powerful – we want you and your friends to live and learn better together.

 Would you enjoy the Ad Infinitum experience?  You would if you…..

  • Want to take some time on a regular basis to REFLECT and think about your life at college – your classes, study abroad, choosing a major, internships, relationships, leadership opportunities and spirituality. 
  • Want to live with your friends from freshman year but really want to MEET NEW PEOPLE during your sophomore year as well. 
  • Value REAL RELATIONSHIPS and want to develop trust with others by taking part in discussions, debates and other community activities.
  • Enjoyed attending Loyola events in your first year and want to take a more ACTIVE ROLE in planning events for your peers.

Are there requirements to live in the community?

Every residence hall community has a set of expectations outlined by Loyola’s Community Standards, the Resident Assistants and residents living in the area. Since students choose to join Ad Infinitum, we have additional expectations for living in this community.

  • Attend an Orientation meeting on April 2, 2014 from 8pm-9:30pm
  • Complete the StrengthsQuest online assessment by April 18, 2014.
  • Check e-mails throughout the summer to learn about upcoming events and starting to build relationships with each other.
