Bridge to Loyola Mission

Welcome to the Bridge to Loloya family! Becoming a successful college student is not always an easy task. Greater academic competition, differences in preparation for college, and general life experiences are all elements that can affect academic performance. At Loyola University Chicago, we have developed a program specifically designed to assist students in successfully reaching their full potential as members of the Loyola community.

The mission of the Bridge to Loyola program is to instill self-motivation, increase self-efficacy, and equip students with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to successfully transition from high school to college and to persist in the environment of higher education. We are excited for you to become a Bridge to Loloya Rambler!  

Program Description

Bridge to Loyola is a full-year, academic support and leadership development program for conditionally admitted, first-year students. This four-credit program consists of the following:

This year-long program is coordinated by First and Second Year Advising in collaboration with faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, and is designed to provide a supportive, individualized educational experience as students selected to be in the program transition from high school to college. In addition, this program provides numerous opportunities to develop authentic, meaningful relationships with community partners and Loyola University peers, faculty, campus resources, and academic advisors
