All events have been cancelled for the 2020-21 academic year

You don’t want to miss out on our upcoming Loras Scholarship Day event. There is limited availability and spots are filling up fast.

This event welcomes students who want to strengthen their leadership skills during their college years, particularly through engagement with the campus and Dubuque communities. Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with current and future Loras College students. Programming for parents will deepen their knowledge of the opportunities available to their student through the Loras experience.

Below are detailed notes, reminders and an overview of the schedule. Hosting our event on a Sunday maximizes the number of participants that are able to attend. For your convenience, we have included a resource at the bottom of this site that includes a link to local Catholic Mass times as well as a comprehensive listing of worship opportunities for other faith traditions. Safe travels and we look forward to seeing you on campus!

If you need any additional details or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Group Project

During lunch, students will return to their small groups to critically and creatively reflect on what they have learned throughout the day.

Parent Panel (parents & guardians only)

Parents will have the opportunity to hear from parents of current Loras students.  The panel will provide plenty of time for questions and individual interaction.  This session is hosted by Student Development.
