Students eating dinner and listening to presenter

Welcome, Class of 2027!

The Office of Student Engagement is in the process of finalizing dates and deadlines for our 2023 Pre-Fall Programs. Check back soon for these upcoming details.

Are you a language enthusiast? Do you want to meet other students who share your love of languages? Are you ready to jump-start your Loyola experience and refresh your language skills? Register for L.E.A.P. today!  
The new-and-improved L.E.A.P. (Language Engagement and Activities Program) is designed for students who love learning languages and exploring the cultures they shape. This multi-day experience will foster immersive language practice and authentic cultural exchange via faculty-guided language activities as well as Spanish/Hispanic- and Italian-themed cultural events (e.g. a cooking class, dinner at a local ethnic restaurant, a trip to the Planet Word in DC, and more!). In addition, students will learn about ways to maximize their language study at Loyola (language clubs, majors/minors, etc.) and meet current language students who will help them acclimate to campus and college living.  


Sunday, August 27 - Thursday, August 31

Program Fee:

$150 (Financial assistance may be available, please contact us for information)


Register for L.E.A.P.! 

*Please note, students will be prompted to login to The Bridge with their Loyola credentials in order to complete their registration*
