The Welcome Pack: Student Success Center

Subject line: Success on Your Terms

At Loyola, we care about your success. That’s why the Pan-American Life Student Success Center is one of the busiest offices on campus. Last fall, we had more than 5,000 visits for our services. In the short video below, Loyola alumnus Zontre City ‘21 will give you a quick tour of all the resources available to you. 

Support for You

We’ll help you navigate all aspects of your college experience to define success on your terms. Within the Success Center, you’ll find different departments to help you access the resources you need. We encourage every student to make use of our services, early and often. 

Academic Advising and Success Coaching: You’ll meet with your advisor-coach regularly to set and make progress towards meaningful goals for your first year as a member of the Wolf Pack. Expect to hear from your advisor-coach no later than the first week of class!

Career Development Center: The Career Development Center is here to assist you from day one as you prepare for a successful life after graduation. We’ll help first-year and transfer students begin exploring and planning to pursue future internship opportunities that will help you acquire the skills needed to successfully pursue your chosen profession. 

Writing and Learning Services: At OWLS, you’ll receive one-on-one tutoring sessions with one of our many trained peer tutors. Whether you need some extra guidance and encouragement in math, someone to practice Spanish with, or another pair of eyes to read over your essay, we’re here for you! 

Accessible Education: The Office for Accessible Education (OAE) is here to help with a smooth transition from modifications to accommodations for students who have an IEP or 504 plan in high school. You can schedule an appointment with your Accessibility Counselor to help you determine what accommodations you need to access course materials, programs, dining, and housing. 

TRIO-Student Support Services (SSS): TRIO-Student Support Services (SSS) is a program funded through the U.S. Department of Education that serves first-generation college students, students with disabilities, and low-income students. Participants have access to support services to help with coursework, career exploration, financial literacy, and skills development.
