Aspiring to be at the helm of a major student organization here at Loyola? Take a look at these graduating seniors for inspiration — these Loyolans have given countless hours to their respective clubs and organizations, contributing
to the university community as a whole. Photo Editor Zach Zimmerman asked each of these seniors what they feel has been their biggest accomplishment at their organizations and what legacy they hope to leave upon their departure.

with the university to increase the student voice [at] Loyola.”

will serve as a place to connect with God as well as a place to build our
community.”
