We know this experience will be new and different for each of you. We are currently working on the plans for a Spring Welcome Weekend to meet the unique needs of each of our new Greyhounds. Below is some general information and we will continue to update this website as needed. Students should pay close attention to their Loyola email for the most updated and accurate orientation information.

  • Spring Welcome Weekend 2023 will take place on Sunday, January 15 (see schedule below)
  • The program will offer you an opportunity to meet and interact with other transfer students, current students, and administrators
  • Information sessions will be geared to what you need to know that is specific to Loyola 

Spring Welcome Weekend is mandatory for all new students. When you made your deposit to Loyola, there was an orientation fee included which fully covers the cost of orientation.

If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding orientation please contact the Office of Student Engagement at orientation@loyola.edu
