PACKport 2013

PackPortBienvenue Class of 2017!

A note from the Vice President of Student Affairs and Associate Provost:

Now that you have arrived on campus, you are officially a PART of the PACK!

This is your personal PACKport, guiding you through the first six weeks of campus life. Attending PACKport sponsored programs provides opportunities for involvement, new connections, and engaging with both the Loyola and New Orleans community.

Collect credits documenting your ‘travel’ through events planned just for you. Each event is designed to chart a path to success; an exciting start to a great first year.

I look forward to seeing you; welcome to the PACK!

M.L. “Cissy” Petty, Ph.D
Vice President for Student Affairs and Associate Provost

What is PACKport?

PACKport is a series of social and educational events specifically designed to introduce first-year students into the Loyola community! There is something for everyone including on and off campus late night actives and excursions, workshops, athletic events, and opportunties to meet faculty outside of the classroom! Select and RSVP to events through your OrgSync account and 100 PACKpoints for every PACKport sponsored event you attend!

What are PACKpoints?

PACKpoints accumulate each time you check in at a PACKport sponsored event! Rack up points and redeem them for prizes and merchandice at the PACKport Finale, Splatterball, on September 26 in the Res Quad. Some events are PACKplus events where you can ear bonus points for participation. Pay attention to Residential Life on Facebook and Twitter to see how you can earn PACKplus points!
