Celebration of Student Scholars
The University's Celebration of Student Scholars event is usually held in the Loyola Science Center Atrium. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions on in-person activities this year, we will give our seniors and graduate students the opportunity to present their research/scholarly projects in a virtual format.
Faculty and students have been notified by email regarding the registration process. If you have any questions, regarding this years virtual event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
