The Loyola University family is large and diverse, and you can be sure there are other alumni who share your particular interests! An Affinity Group is defined as a community of alumni who are drawn together based on common interests and shared experiences during their time at Loyola. The group assists in furthering the University’s engagement efforts, while reconnecting with other alumni!
Loyola University Black Alumni Board
This dedicated group of alumni includes many class years, majors, and backgrounds! The group puts on multiple events throughout the year including the annual African American Alumni Jingle Mingle, The End of the Year Celebration for graduating seniors, a Black History Month service event, and more! They have built a strong partnership with the Black Cultural Center (BCC) and the African Student Alliance (ASA) here at Loyola.
Loyola University Latino Alumni Board
Loyola’s Latino population stays closely knit after graduation and continues to support current Loyola students in many ways. They offer multiple programs throughout the year including a Hispanic Heritage Month event, a Churros and Chocolate night, and more! The group has created a partnership with LASO (Latin American Student Organization) to connect the current students and alumni, all while having a great time enjoying each other’s company and networks.
Loyola University Rugby Alumni
The men and women’s Rugby teams are known for their comradery at Loyola, and this doesn’t end after you graduate! The Rugby Alumni group has created a Rugby Endowed Scholarship and puts on events throughout the year to raise money to benefit students for years to come. The group works closely with the current team to support the organization where they can, all while gathering as a group for fun and networking throughout the year!
