Saturday, November 14, 2015

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. This year's event will take place on Saturday, November 14, 2015Through 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.

Alumni registration for Wolves on the Prowl will open soon. We will continue to update this page as chapter cities confirm their service site. For more information, contact Emily Aucoin, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations at 504-861-5870 or eaucoin@loyno.edu

Planned and led by Loyola’s Office of Alumni Relations, Mission and Ministry, Student Goverment Assocation, and the Alumni Association Community Service committee, Wolves on the Prowl pairs volunteers from the Loyola community with programs throughout the country that need help.
