LUREC Summer Sessions

Immersive summer courses at LUREC give Loyola students opportunities to learn via hands-on, place-based education and deepen their appreciation for the natural world. For three weeks in May, students live and study on campus in a dormitory setting, eat meals together in the cafeteria, and complete the equivalent of one semester-long course in only three weeks.

Faculty members teaching the courses take advantage of the LUREC facilities and the nearby natural areas and farms in McHenry County to combine classroom learning, lab activities, and experiences in the field.
