Loyola at a Glance

Loyola alumni poised to increase university support for fifth year in a row

July 19, 2013

By renewing support or giving for the first time, Loyola alumni and friends show the world the value of Loyola’s Jesuit education—an education inspired by St. Ignatius Loyola's vision to teach students to pursue truth, wisdom and virtue and to work for a more just world. Alumni participation is directly tied to the university’s national rankings on leading lists such as those produced by U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review and others.

"Loyola is facing some recruiting and budgetary challenges right now. The people who know Loyola best—the graduates—continue to vote with their gifts and affirm that a Loyola education is a worthwhile investment. In challenging times, one’s friends and family step up. We are seeing this at Loyola," said Vice President of Institutional Advancement William Bishop.

Gifts made by July 31 help deserving students and count to this important milestone. Approximately one-third of Loyola students are first-generation college students. Loyola continuously seeks to make college a reality for students who are the first in their family to go to college, lowering financial barriers to entry through financial aid. Gifts to Loyola help make college a reality for many of these students.

For more information on gifts made before July 31, visit the Loyola Giving website.
