Summer Orientation

Congratulations and welcome to our Loyola community! We are excited that you have made the decision to join us this fall, and our virtual summer orientation program will help to prepare you for the start of your Loyola journey. The schedule below outlines important dates and information you need to know.

In addition to these information sessions, students will participate in small orientation group meetings, complete an academic schedule with a Messina advisor, and there will be a series of panels and webinars for your family.

One of the most important things you can do is to check your Loyola email account regularly, as that is where most of the official communication from the University will be sent. Additionally, we will send out notifications to your family members for sessions that may be of interest to them.

All in. Open heart, open mind
