Loyola University New Orleans First Year Experience

About the First Year Experience

Loyola's Jesuit Tradition

Our First-Year Experience programs welcome you into an holistic education shaped by the Jesuit concept of the cura personalis, the education of the whole person. The components of the program—academic seminars, residential programs, and co-curricular activities—are interdependent, encouraging your academic, spiritual, and social development through reflections on fundamental values. Such reflection is a central part of the Jesuit ideal of educating men and women with and for others who work for a more just world.
