First in the PACK

First in the PACK is a mentoring program that supports first year, first generation students’ transition from high school to Loyola. First in the PACK is a campus-wide network of faculty, staff and students who create a community of support as they support first-year students through adjustment challenges and teach them how to navigate Loyola’s resources. 

We define first generation students as students whose parents did not graduate from a bachelor's degree program. 

First-year, first generation students who are coming to Loyola this August 2019 will be invited to apply later this spring.

We have selected our mentors for the 2018-2019 year, but will start the recruitment process for Fall 2019 this spring.
