We will also be sending you messages in real time via the app. You will check-in for Wolf Pack Welcome at your first Krewe meeting.

Commuter Students: You will receive your welcome packet, including a hard copy of the schedule at your first Krewe Leader meeting. Make sure to download the Guidebook app to find your Krewe meeting location.

Masks: Loyola requires all individuals to wear a face mask covering their nose and mouth while indoors except when that individual is alone (e.g. personal residence hall rooms). This includes all activities during Wolf Pack Welcome. For more information on health and safety guidelines, click here.
