New Student Education

All incoming Loyola Chicago undergraduates are required to complete education on sexual assault prevention and alcohol prevention. Loyola Chicago requires students to receive education to stay in compliance with federal law, and to make sure that all incoming students are on the same page about Loyola's policies and expectations around alcohol use and sexual violence. These educational programs also give students information on Loyola specific wellness and reporting resources. All students should be able to have the chance to thrive academically and socially in a safe and supportive environment.
