Loyola University Chicago

Orientation

Parents and Families

Welcome to the Loyola Community

Orientation, and the transition to college, is a family event, and we want you to know that the faculty and staff of Loyola University Chicago are dedicated to supporting and easing your family's transition to Loyola. We're here to help during every step of the process.

As part of this transition, we encourage family members to participate in our optional online parent and family member orientation programming, including the Online Orientation Welcome Event on Monday, December 7 from 4:00-4:50PM CT and our weekly LUC Resource Webinars. When your student registers for orientation, we'll ask them to include the names of family members interested in participating in Orientation so that we can email you more information about our online orientation opportunities for parents and family members. 

We look forward to acclimating you to the Loyola community, and the many academic, personal, social, and spiritual resources and opportunities available to support your student's learning and development. Most of all, we hope that you are enjoying this exciting time in your and your student's life.

If your student has questions about what needs to be completed prior to Orientation, please refer them to the Before Orientation page. To learn more about your student's specific Orientation program, please select the option for either First-Year or Transfer student Orientation. You can also contact us at orientation@luc.edu or parents@luc.edu with questions or concerns.
