Alumni College

Experience Loyola Again!

June 7-9, 2013

As part of the Loyola Alumni Enrichment Series - Growing in Knowledge and Deepening our Faith, the Alumni Association is pleased to invite all alumni, spouses, parents, and friends to the second Alumni College: Experience Loyola Again!

Over a three-day weekend, you will have the opportunity to attend classes taught by Loyola’s outstanding current and retired faculty and alumni. When you are not in class, you will have a chance to mingle at meals and social events with fellow alumni, Loyola faculty, and administrators.

The classes offered will be grouped into tracks that will help you to identify topics of particular interest. There will be four tracks, six sessions per track, and a joint session on Sunday, taught by University President Kevin Wm. Wildes, S.J., Ph.D.

For those participating in the full Weekend Program, select your preferred Extra Curricular Activity on Friday morning, June 7.  Then select your favorite Track Selection for the Weekend Program or the Saturday Only Program. This one selection will in no way limit you to this single Track; all registrants may participate in classes from another Track.
