Will my student organization be allowed to travel during the school year?

The university (e.g. SGA) will not approve or provide funding for any travel for individuals or student organizations (e.g. to attend conferences). Students are expected to remain in the New Orleans area during the Fall 2020 semester, refraining from unnecessary travel until we go home at Thanksgiving.

I am a member of Fraternity and Sorority Life. How will this affect me?

All in-person organization events and meetings are canceled. Per our student organization policy, registered student organizations are prohibited from hosting any in-person events during university online operations. Student Life and Ministry will work closely with national organizations and chapter advisors to assist in providing support to members during this time. For specific questions, please contact Dale O’Neill, PhD, Director of Student Life and Ministry via email at dmoneill@loyno.edu or by phone at 504.865.3622.

What about Immersion Programs and Summer Programs?

Currently, all university-related international travel is suspended. Student Life and Ministry will notify students when this restriction is lifted and Immersion programs continue.

Will Mass still be celebrated on campus?

Loyola will continue to offer a live streamed Mass from Ignatius Chapel on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. You can find the link to watch the Mass here. Currently, in-person attendees are limited to those pre-approved by a closed sign-up process.
