Tentative Schedule for Summer 2013 Program Session
Students participating in the 2013–2014 Bridge to Loyola program are required to attend the July 12–13 Loyola University Chicago Orientation.
The official start to the Bridge to Loyola program is a Welcome Reception immediately following the orientation lunch on Saturday, July 13. At the Bridge Welcome Reception, students and parents will have the opportunity to learn more about the program, ask questions, and meet the program faculty and staff. After the reception, students will participate in a retreat at Loyola's Retreat and Ecology Campus until Sunday evening. The retreat will include workshops, outdoor team-building activities, and reflection exercises. Academic classes will begin on Monday morning.
A sample week schedule is available here. Students should not make any outside commitments during the three-week program (including evenings and weekends). The program schedule includes the academic courses, workshops, study time, social programs, and a service-learning project. The last Friday of the program, August 2, will include the students' final examination in the morning and a closing reception in the afternoon.
