Welcome to the Loyola Student Life Timeline Project!
This timeline was created for Loyola University Chicago’s 150th anniversary and explores Loyola’s history through the lens of student life.
For 150 years, students from a variety of backgrounds have found academic opportunities at Loyola, formed clubs and organizations, and interacted with their peers and with the changing world around them. Every decade has had its challenges and successes, and each generation of students has honored Loyola’s mission of social justice by getting involved and making a difference.
This project was developed by the Sesquicentennial Scholars, a team of graduate students working in conjunction with the Loyola University Archives & Special Collections and the Women and Leadership Archives, with support from the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities.
