Share in the ceremony that honors athletes who have made an impact in the history of their sport at Loyola. Once a year, inductees are welcomed into the Loyola Hall of Fame by fellow athletes and coaches. All are welcomed to share in Loyola sports camaraderie.

The Hall of Fame honors those in Loyola's past who have either made history or contributed greatly to their sport. The criteria for selection include integrity, sportsmanship, and character.

The Hall of Fame was created in 1964. After Loyola disbanded its program in 1972, the Hall of Fame did not return until the intercollegiate athletic program was re-instated in 1991-92. Those in the Hall of Fame include Olympic record setters, coaches of national championship teams, school recordholders, and a host of fine athletes and coaches who represented Loyola with excellence.
