About Loyola Magazine

Close undefinedundefined

Loyola magazine is published twice a year in print and throughout the year online by the office of marketing and communications at Loyola University Maryland, a Jesuit, liberal arts university in Baltimore, Maryland. Loyola tells stories about the students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni of Loyola, reflecting on the past, embracing the present, and looking forward into the future. The magazine is distributed to supporters of Loyola University Maryland.

The Loyola magazine team is a creative, dynamic group—some alumni and some who wish they were—that takes great pride in identifying and creating content that will help readers feel more connected to the University that they love.


Send questions, criticisms, praise, and other thoughts to the Loyola magazine team at magazine@loyola.edu. Freelance writers—especially Loyola graduates—are welcome to reach out to offer their services.
