WHAT YOU LEARN
By serving at Uptown Shepherd's Center, Loyola students can gain exposure to the senior population and come to have better understanding of them. Students will gain an appreciation for senior interests and capabilities, new insights regarding challenges seniors face in our society, the realization that age doesn't define a person. They may also gain exposure to gerontology as a possible career path.
