“A Duhawk is a paradox; it is a person who can reach enormous academic, athletic, service, faith, and social heights, yet is the most down-to-earth person you’ll ever have the good fortune of meeting.”

I’m proud to have been a part of the conference-winning Men’s Basketball team. I was involved in the Business Club, two internships and  the PeepTrade challenge.  A Duhawk is not fearful of adversary that might be bigger or better on paper, and one who gets excited when others get scared.

I am an RA (Resident Assistant) along with serving as marketing officer for L.I.S.A., Loras International Student Association.

A Duhawk is one who isn’t afraid of challenging others and speak their opinion even if it’s different.

I’ve been able to travel the world with my students for impactful J-term courses – from meeting with industry leaders in Silicon Valley to helping rebuild communities in Haiti. A Duhawk is a doer. We focus on experiential learning that extends well beyond the boundaries of the classroom.”

A Duhawk is determined to put forth their best effort in every aspect of life; academics, athletics, spirituality or service. In all the success they create for themselves, and others, Duhawks have a foundation for achievement rooted in the Loras community, and for that are forever grateful.
