Sponsoring Department: Campus Ministry

Explore your gifts and talents, take a "time-out" from your hectic life, and find a deeper connect to yourself, to others, and to God. Our retreats vary from a few hours to a week-long. Explore our retreats and find the one that best helps you reconnect, re-charge, and re-spiritualize.

Service & Justice

Sponsoring Department: Center for Community Service & Action

The heart of Jesuit education is transforming ourselves into being "leaders-in-service." At Loyola, you will find that every department integrates service and justice into its programs- providing all students to live out Loyola's character of being "men and women for others." The Center for Community Service & Action (CCSA) is your first stop in getting engaged in service and justice. From weekly projects like the local soup kitchen, to special projects like Hunger Week, to club service projects, you can get involved today in making the world a better place.
