Welcome to First and Second Year Advising

First and Second Year Advising serves the academic advising and support needs of students at Loyola University Chicago through the first two years of their college experience. We provide students with advising services and referrals to our campus partners that contribute to a successful transition from high school to college and to our students’ holistic development, in line with our Jesuit, Catholic mission and Cura Personalis. We support and challenge our students in their pursuits of excellence and Magis, and guide them toward the completion of their academic goals and attainment of a degree in a timely manner. 

During our summer months, the First and Second Year Advising team is working hard to welcome and support over 5,000+ Loyola University Chicago students. Due to the volume of support needed, our team works strategically to provide multiple avenues for students to receive support and opportunities to interact with our staff.
