Presenting the Class of 2021

Just as we do in person, we recognize and celebrate the achievements of our graduates of college, school, and institute. In addition to each virtual ceremony, you can find all student slides in our searchable database.


Candidates will be recognized by degree group then major in alpha order in the same order as the program book. Candidates will have their name read followed by interdisciplinary honors (if applicable)  and laudatory status (if applicable). Candidates receiving an additional degree will also have that degree recognized.

Environmental Impact Pledge

In Spring of 2020, Student Government of Loyola Chicago passed a resolution to invite all students to make a commitment at graduation to bring the social and environmental justice values they engage with during their time at Loyola into their careers and future endeavors.
