A heritage of faith


Spiritual life has been the foundation of the Loras College community for over 180 years, enabling us to combine faith and reason in a way that positively guides us—academically, socially and in our service to others.

Straight Talk from a Duhawk

One of my most impactful experiences through Loras was a service trip to Vanceburg, Kentucky my first year. I applied for the trip without knowing any of the other students or the faculty member that would be going. I was nervous, but it turned into one of the best experiences of my time at Loras, and led to friendships with some of the people who are my closest friends now.
