Student Success


The first weeks of the new academic year are a critical period for new members of the ‘Pack, especially our first-year students. To ease the transition to life and learning at Loyola, we’ve created a program for first-year students called the “Packport.” The Packport program includes social and educational events on campus, held during the first six weeks of the new Fall term.

Packport brings together a range academic and administrative campus offices in to create lectures, events, and social activities. Prizes and drawings provide incentive for students to participate, while upperclass residence hall and orientation staff serve as guides for the newest members of the ‘Pack.

Loyola University New Orleans is committed to student success. We use a Strengths-based approach on our campus to enhance student engagement, retention, graduation and life success. We believe that by helping students discover their individual strengths, we can work together to create the most of the your undergraduate experience.

By focusing on your individual strengths, this initiative will help you develop to your full potential in:

  • academics
  • career development
  • leadership
  • relationships

StrengthsQuest is a program that begins with the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment. This online assessment identifies an individual’s top five talents and the StrengthsQuest program provides resources for setting goals that put those talents into meaningful action. To date, over 2000 Loyola University New Orleans students have completed the StrengthsFinder assessment.

Throughout your time at Loyola you will be engaged in ways to discover, develop, and apply your Strengths. Your first year will focus on discovery of your strengths through a variety of programs and services. Examples of programs include the following:

  • Personalized Strengthsfinder access code provided in your LORA account
  • StrengthsQuest Conference during Wolfpack Welcome
  • Introductory workshops
  • Emerging Leaders Program
  • Residential Life programs
  • Career Development Workshops
