Wolves on the Prowl: Loyola's National Day of Community Service

 

In the Jesuit tradition, Loyola University New Orleans strives to develop individuals who dedicate their lives to service for others. Each year, hundreds of alumni and students participate in Loyola's National Day of Community Service, Wolves on the Prowl. Through our mission as a Jesuit Catholic university, we prepare our students to lead meaningful lives with and for others and to work for a more just world.  Wolves on the Prowl is a way for alumni to live out our mission by serving the communities they live in.

Join the Loyola community in your area this November for Wolves on the Prowl.
