This summer, Loyola’s incoming students won’t be able to tour Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus or try out on-campus dining halls during their orientation experience, due to it being entirely online. Instead, they will participate in activities such as Zoom sessions with fellow incoming Ramblers and a virtual tour of campus.
Leslie Doan, an incoming first-year from Chicago, said the Facebook group helped her connect with other students and make a few friends.
“I actually felt really welcomed,” Doan, 17, said.
Doan, who said her orientation week ran from June 15-18, said she’s attended two online webinars. Although sometimes her questions weren’t answered, she said one of her favorite experiences was the use of Kahoot! — an online learning platform which uses interactive multiple-choice quizzes as learning games — during the Rambler Resources for Academic Success webinar June 16.
