Mandatory for new students: Join all new students in Loyola's annual Convocation Walk, the procession led by your student body president. The route will take you through Cudahy Library's ceremonial green doors and end at the New Student Convocation in Gentile Arena. As students approach the end of the Convocation Walk they will enter into a vibrant and spirited 'welcome tunnel' formed by members of the faculty and staff. This year's Convocation Walk will be held on Friday, August 26, at 2:45 p.m. on the East Quad. (Rain location: Gentile Arena at 4:00 p.m.)
Faculty and staff: To participate in the welcome tunnel, please plan to meet near the southeast doors of the Norville Center for Intercollegiate Athletics at 3 p.m. To create excitement and to set the tone, we ask that you wear Loyola gear or colors. We will provide free Loyola ballcaps to volunteers at the tunnel on a first-come, first-served basis.
