Parents and caregivers, welcome to the Wolf Pack! We recommend that parents/caregivers review the orientation modules. Additionally, as a means to foster relationships with your new Loyola family, we will be hosting several optional Zoom panels throughout the semester. There will be a chat function enabled, which will allow your questions to be answered by a Loyola professional staff member and/or a Krewe Leader.
See below for opportunities. You're an invaluable part of the Loyola community, providing guidance and support to your students as they embark on their college journey. To support the important work you do, the Office of Student Affairs invites you to join our virtual webinars on various topics throughout the school year. Take a look at what's coming up!
