Loyola Online Community Coming Soon!

Have you been waiting for an accessible way to connect with your Loyola classmates? A platform to search for alumni? You won't have to wait much longer!

Beginning January 2018, alumni with have the ability to easily update their contact information with Loyola, search for classmates, and direct message fellow alumni through the Loyola Online Community. These are just a few of the features that will be available to members. Another great benefit is that enrollment is free! Virtual training sessions will take place in January and February 2018 to instruct alumni, faculty, and staff, in how to use the online community.

Starting in January, alumni will be able to register as new members. The online community will be implemented in stages, first with alumni, then with faculty and staff, and finally with graduating students. Once registered as a new user, we will verify user information and allow access to log-in with a username and password.

The Alumni Listing feature will allow alumni to search for other alumni. Members will have the ability to make information public or private on their profiles. It is up to the user what they wish to share with other members. By default, we will include the following information in the Alumni Listing search: first name, last name, maiden name (if applicable), city, state, primary major, and class year.

If you wish to completely remove yourself from the Alumni Listing search results, please submit an online request. For additional information, please contact the Office of Alumni Engagement at 504-861-5454 or send an email to alumni@loyno.edu

 

Loyola Online Community features include: 

  • Secure login with username and password   

  • Alumni with have the ability to easily update their contact information with Loyola. After a member logs in they will see the address and email Loyola has on file for them as their preferred information. If this is incorrect, or you move, you can easily update your information. 

  • When setting up their profile, alumni will have the ability to make some information public and other information private to other users. It is up to the user what they wish to share with the community. These setting can be changed at any time through the user profile. 

  • All alumni will be searchable to other alumni through the Alumni Listing, unless they ask to be removed. By default, we will included the following information: first name, last name, maiden name (if applicable), city, state, major and class year.

  • From the Alumni Listing, users are able to search and view a listing of alumni.

    If you would like to remove yourself completely from the search results before the launch of the Online Community, please do so here or by emailing alumni@loyno.edu. Members can change this at anytime through the Communication Preferences

  • From the results users can access additional information by clicking the member's name. Additional information, made available by the user's profile settings, will then appear. If information has been made private by the member, that information will not show up to other users. 


 

  • Members can message other members through the Alumni Listing. A pop-up window will display with some populated messaging. This information can be personlized. This message will then send to the preferred email address we have on file for the alumnus/a. 

  • Another great feature through the Online Community is that that users can easily update their communication preferences at any time.
