*Loyola University New Orleans New Student Orientation
June 21-23 – Still on as Planned!
(Posted June 20, 2017 2:30 p.m.)

As you may have heard, there is currently a storm system in the Gulf of Mexico bringing rainfall to the Southeast Louisiana region. We wanted to let you know that all operations are normal at Loyola University and in the surrounding area. 

New Student Orientation is currently planned to proceed as scheduled. It’s likely that New Orleans will be experiencing some rain while you’re on campus for orientation, so please make sure to pack rain gear and plan ahead for potential travel delays.

If you will be arriving late due to inclement weather or would like to reschedule your orientation in August, please contact Dale O’Neill, director of student involvement at dmoneill@loyno.edu or 504-865-3622. 

Late arrivals to campus should report to the Danna Student Center, as planned, and a member of our Student Involvement Team will check you in and escort you to ongoing activities.

Loyola University New Orleans is committed to ensuring the safety of the entire Loyola community and all visitors to campus, and we continue to monitor the situation.  Should the situation change, our Office of Emergency Management will update the Loyola homepage, as well its web page,  which can be found here.


***The August session is for International Students, Transfer Students, and first year students who cannot attend a June Session.
For questions regarding Orientation, please contact the Department of Student Involvement at (504) 865-3622 or at orientation@loyno.edu. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Students will need to attend one summer orientation session prior to classes starting in Fall 2017. New Student Orientation registration is now open!
