Members of the Loyola University New Orleans community braved the New Orleans heat and humidity and went “Into the Streets” on Thursday for a day of service within the greater New Orleans community.

Approximately 420 students from Loyola’s Class of 2015, along with faculty and staff, volunteered for a number of projects, including home construction work with the St. Bernard Project, cleanup at City Park, and other volunteer opportunities through ARC of New Orleans and the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission.

“Into the Streets” has become a tradition during new student orientation as a way for incoming students to participate in Loyola’s Jesuit mission of service, bond with future classmates, and to connect students with the New Orleans community.
