Fr. Scott Hendrickson, SJ

Resident Chaplain

Regis Hall, 1st Floor



D. Scott Hendrickson, SJ, Jesuit chaplain in Regis Hall, is a faculty member and teaches Spanish language, literature, and culture in the department of Modern Languages and Literatures. His area of specialization is the Golden Age of Spanish literature and art. He is also involved in summer study abroad, and teaches and guides a summer course along the camino ignaciano, a pilgrimage class that follows the path and spiritual conversion of St. Ignatius of Loyola through his native country of Spain. Fr. Hendrickson completed his studies at Saint Louis University, New York University, Universidad Pontificia Comillas de Madrid, and Oxford University. He has been at Loyola University Chicago since 2013, a chaplain in San Francisco Hall from 2014 to 2017, and currently resides in Regis Hall.

"I enjoy living in Regis Hall as a Jesuit chaplain because Loyola University Chicago aims to be a student-centered university wherein students are immersed in the transformative ideals of Jesuit education and Ignatian pedagogy, and being a chaplain allows me to get to know students outside of the classroom. Students have direct access to those of us who serve as chaplains simply because we live in their residence halls. Students are always welcome to seek out all residence life chaplains in order to explore the questions they have around their life goals, intellectual pursuits, and faith. " -- Fr. D Scott Hendrickson, SJ
