About the Speaker Series

Each year at homecoming, the Green & Grey Alumni Speakers Series will invite alumni who were members of Loyola’s Green & Grey Society to speak on campus. This year's speaker series is a bit different because we are physically apart, but the significance of the event endures. As undergraduates, this group represented a cross-section of undergraduate communities and leadership paths at the University. As alumni, Green & Grey graduates have pursued a wide range of fields and have made indelible marks in their fields. From professors to artists, to politicians to musicians, business tycoons to leaders in medicine and law, these Loyola graduates have forged paths in virtually every arena. The seeds planted during those undergraduate years continue to flourish and nurture their influence on a diverse and changing world. As alumni of influence who embody our University motto, “Strong Truths Well Lived,” these graduates demonstrate the impact of a Loyola education.
