About the Loyola Experience Culminating Portfolio & How to Earn Your Diploma or Commemorative Frame

Your Loyola Experience is not just one experience, but really a collection of your experiences over several years – classes, student organizations, community engagement, internships, study abroad, leadership opportunities, etc. During your time at Loyola, you’ve honed in on your skills, knowledge, and strengths to enact change and set the world on fire! The Loyola Experience is a collection of integrated academic, spiritual, and social experiences which are intended to build your knowledge, skills, and values, and complement your unique talents, gifts, and desires. 

The Loyola Experience Culminating Portfolio is an opportunity to demonstrate your learning and experiences in a digital learning portfolio. In doing so, you are eligible to earn either a commemorative frame that displays all four of your Loyola Experience keys OR a coveted Loyola Experience diploma frame!

This opportunity is open to all Loyola Juniors and Seniors who have already taken or currently enrolled in an Engaged Learning course

The Loyola Experience Culminating Portfolio will be reviewed by Loyola faculty and staff who will award the top 3 Loyola Experience Culminating Portfolios the Loyola Experience Diploma Frame and the next top 7 the Loyola Experience Commemorative Frame.

How do I earn the frame?
