Class of 2028 Parents & Families

Welcome to the Loyola Community!

Congratulations! The time you have spent preparing for college has paid off. You did it, together. This is an exciting time for your student, but it’s also an exciting time for you. We’ll be here to support your family during the transition to college and for the next four years—from getting them settled in during their first year to the day they receive their diploma and beyond.

This page is designed for parents and families of accepted students. Here, you'll find helpful information about Loyola, special events, and next steps in the enrollment process. If you have any specific questions, please contact your family’s admission counselor and they will be happy to help!

We'd love to see you on our Evergreen Campus

We’re offering a range of on-campus and virtual experiences designed specifically for accepted students and families to help you explore what our university has to offer and get your questions answered. These visit experiences provide a unique opportunity to see our campus, meet current students, interact with potential future classmates of your student, learn about the academic programs and majors available, and speak directly with our faculty. We especially hope you’ll consider joining us for one of our accepted student open houses: February 17, March 23, April 13.

Welcome to the Loyola family! Summer Orientation for the Class of 2028 will be a hybrid program, with one full day on campus for students and families in June, complemented by virtual programming throughout the summer. Once registration is available in April, you'll be able to choose one of the four in-person orientation dates to attend: June 24, June 25, June 27, or June 28. We will send your family an email when registration opens and you can get started on the checklist—but for now, just relax and enjoy your student’s senior year!
