We hope you will make smart and safe decisions no matter how you choose to celebrate Halloween

Dear Students,

Fall is here, and Halloween is quickly approaching. We know many of you will celebrate the holiday weekend with the Chicago community, and we hope you will make smart and safe decisions no matter how you choose to celebrate.

Don’t forget there are plenty of events on campus throughout the week, including a Masquerade Costume Skate, tours of the Madonna della Strada crypts, Campfire and S’mores with Ramble Outdoors, and more. Additionally, all residence halls are planning special activities; check with your resident assistants for details.

Here are a few tips to help our entire community celebrate in a safe environment:
  • Travel with a group of friends, stay alert, and remember not all people in costumes are friendly—be aware of who is around you.
  • Use 8-RIDE by calling 773.508.RIDE (7433).
  • Remember the Student Promise—care for yourself, care for others, and care for the community.
  • Avoid high-risk behaviors involving alcohol. If you choose to drink, be responsible and check outthese tips. If you are under 21, understand the consequences of fake IDs and under-age drinking.
  • Respect peers’ decisions not to drink.
  • Look out for each other and remember Loyola’s Good Samaritan Policy.
  • Be respectful of our neighbors and our neighborhood.
Happy Halloween,
Jane Neufeld
Vice President, Student Development
