Hello Greyhound Parents and Families,

The spring semester is underway, and we hope you and your students are enjoying a happy and healthy new year. The spring semester is an exciting time at Loyola, as we celebrate and observe a number of campus traditions and events. A few upcoming events include Mission Week, the Common Text Keynote Speaker, the Black Student Association Fashion Show, Relay for Life, Academic Excellence Weekend, Loyolapalooza, and Baccalaureate Mass and Commencement.

We also want to highlight a few exciting opportunities from one of our campus partners, Campus Ministry. Campus Ministry is currently hosting the first Interfaith Week, which will conclude with a Hope and Renewal Interfaith Prayer Service in the Alumni Memorial Chapel on Friday, Jan. 25, at 3:30 p.m. Campus Ministry is also hosting a Retreats Launch Event on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at noon, which offers students the opportunity to learn more about the many retreats held during the spring semester. 

The division for student development wants to provide specific information for the parents of seniors and first-year students. We know seniors are navigating their final semester at Loyola, but there are many resources they can engage in before graduation. We also know that some first-year students are working to establish Loyola as their new home, and we have resources to support them on their journey. 

Finally, health and wellness are often on everyone’s minds as we enter a new year. The Student Health Center has reminders about primary prevention measures and general health resources. The Counseling Center also has information and resources for students struggling with chronic illness or the illness of a loved one.
 
As always, the division for student development office is here to support your students and enhance their Loyola experience. We’re looking forward to an exciting and productive spring semester. 

Sincerely,

The Division for Student Development
