The Loyola experience includes much more than academics. Here students are challenged mind, body, and spirit, and they enjoy many avenues to share their gifts. No matter where each student shines, each one can find a way to express his talents here at Loyola.
At Loyola there is something for everyone, and if it does not exist yet, students are encouraged to create it! Some clubs, like Tabletop Games Club or Modern Music Club, are just for fun, while others involve interscholastic competition. The Science Olympiad Team, for example, has earned a reputation for excellence. Click here to learn more about the clubs at Loyola.
Students attend Mass every Wednesday at the Catherdral of St. John Berchmans, and all are invited to pray in the chapel in the Residents’ Hall. Additionally, student retreats are important events in students' lives that help steer the process of self-discovery. In between, classes in religion and spirituality and the pervasive spirit of St. Ignatius are all part of every student's daily life.
Service is built into the Ignatian approach to education. At Loyola, it is a part of every student’s experience. Whether he or she is tutoring local youngsters at The Lighthouse, distributing FAiTH baskets to neighbors, or fundraising for non-profit organizations, each student experiences the joy of serving others.
At Loyola, student service does not stop with the requirements of school. Students come up with their own ideas for service, find help from faculty to implement them, and take action. Recently, a student-led program at a local nursing home has connected residents with Loyola students—a partnership that has positively impacted them all.
