Class of 2015 go "Into the Streets"

Loyola press release - August 22, 2011

First-year students at Loyola University New Orleans will go “Into the Streets” on Thursday, Aug. 25 for a day of service within the greater New Orleans community.

Loyola’s Class of 2015, along with faculty and staff, will volunteer 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 Department.

“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.

Students, faculty and staff will meet in the St. Charles Room, located in the Danna Student Center, on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. for breakfast, to check in and receive work site assignments. Participants will then gather in the Residential Quad for a short welcome and blessing by Kurt Bindewald, director of University Ministry, before loading onto buses at 9:30 a.m. and embarking to their different service projects.
