About Family Weekend
Family Weekend is a tradition at Loyola University Chicago that brings together our students, their families, and university staff and faculty. The weekend includes a variety of events from which to choose. The Division of Student Development sponsors Family Weekend in collaboration with Arrupe College, Athletics, Mission Integration, Student Academic Services, the Jesuit Community, and the Department of Fine & Performing Arts.
Did you know that the university recently celebrated it's 150th Anniversary? You are invited to review information from the libraries' archives, and to enjoy a video presentation from Dr. Robert Bucholz on the history of the university. This video was presented and recorded during Family Weekend in 2020.
Family Weekend provides many exciting opportunities for Loyola students and families to:
- Build community and connection
- Explore and engage with student life at Loyola University Chicago
- Learn about and celebrate all that the university has to offer
- Experience our vibrant, international city of Chicago
