Make the most of your summer

Short and sweet: enrolling in Loyola’s Summer Session means you’ll complete your degree program faster. It’s worth keeping an eye on the session schedule to see if you can fit some classes in during your break.

The summer schedule containing course information and times is published online in November through the university's Loyola Online Records Access (LORA) system.

Explore the Big Easy

Nothing’s better than summertime in New Orleans. Riding the streetcar down St. Charles on lazy Sundays, long walks through Audubon Park, snow-balls to take the edge off the heat . . . and of course – at least a couple crawfish boils to look forward to.

If you want to see the city turn into something special, you’ll be around for Jazz Fest and Essence Fest, and if you want to see the French Quarter at it’s friendliest and weirdest, you can join the Red Dress Run. Or, if food is your thing, there are the Oyster and Creole Tomato festivals.

New Orleans is always magical. But summertime is when we come out to play, and it’s worth being around for. And whether you’re local or visiting, Loyola is the perfect hub for your summer adventures.

Jam Sessions
