Loyola at a Glance

Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry encourages you to become a part of a community that promotes the deepening of your faith journey through reflection, discernment and justice in your daily life. Students can explore their spirituality through retreats, liturgical and music ministries, and worship with friends at Mass and other student-led prayer services. You will be challenged to step outside your comfort zone through international immersion experiences focused on Catholic social teaching.

Jesuit Values

At Loyola, our Jesuit-centered approach to education will prepare you for graduation through mind, body, and spirit. As a student, you’ll become a part of the Greyhound community that’s inspired by the spirit of trust, hopefulness, and collaboration within and across institutional divisions and constituencies. Faculty and staff will foster an environment that encourages regular reflection and self-examination to better understand personal freedom and responsibility.

Alumni Memorial Chapel

Built to honor Loyola graduates who served in World War II, the Alumni Memorial Chapel is the physical and spiritual center of the campus. All denominations are welcome to worship here, and it's also a popular spot for alumni to tie the knot. Each December, students pack the candlelit chapel for Lessons and Carols, a Christmas service with Advent songs and scripture readings.

Spiritual Life at Loyola

At Loyola, we encourage students to strengthen themselves in every way—mind, body, and spirit. This philosophy (outlined in our mission statement) stems from the ideals embodied by Jesuit priests who founded Loyola in 1852. While we are a Catholic institution, Loyola is enriched by the perspective of students from many different religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. Loyola offers opportunities for students to nurture their spiritual lives by joining in many opportunities for worship, prayer, service, retreat, and community building offered through Campus Ministry. A Jesuit education is about holistic development, and we encourage every student to integrate their spirituality in all they do.
