Resources for Parents and Families

Parents and family members play an important role in our community at Loyola University New Orleans—you're part of the Wolf Pack, too! We want to make sure you have the information and resources you need to support your student.

Parents of the Pack

Parents of the Pack is a monthly email newsletter featuring a roundup of the most important information and updates from across the university. We share timely information about tutoring and career resources, ways your student can get involved, and anything else you need to help your student be successful.

Parents of Pack is a resource for anyone who provides an essential support system for Loyola students—parents, other family members, guardians, and more. Any other members of your household who wish to be added to this mailing list can subscribe here. If you have any questions, please reach out to
