MEANINGFUL Impact Our students are passionate, entrepreneurial, and driven.

Whether they know exactly what they want to do or they’re still figuring it out, there’s a fire within them urging them toward innovation. And that’s why they choose Loyola—because here, you build that fire into something real. Something meaningful. And something yours.

That you’re among those who have it, those who want to do something innovative, create something meaningful—and inspire others toward their own greatness.

And here, that’s what you’ll do. Read on to find out how.

ASHLEY SHABANKAREH ’10 COLLEGE OF MUSIC AND FINE ARTS

WHERE Director of programs for the Preservation Hall Foundation, serves on the boards of the Loyola University Young Alumni Pack and the Music and Culture Coalition of New Orleans H OW S H E G O T T H E R E Double-majored in music education and music industry studies; became vice president of the Student Government Association; got involved as a krewe leader and in Sigma Alpha Iota, NAfME (National Association for Music Education), and Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society; graduated an accomplished musician; used her position with Preservation Hall to coordinate free music lessons for children and secure financial resources for aging musicians

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in both the music

education and music industry studies programs at Loyola.

Through their small class sizes, they were able to encourage me to try out all facets of the industry, introducing internship opportunities along the way. I don’t think I would have ended up in the career I am in now without my education from Loyola.

I asked Loyola if I could develop a curriculum for a

program that I would actually work on with students and measure the outcomes. I applied for the Magis grant.

I wrote grant proposals to the Women’s Resource Center and Music Industry Department. In total, I got $1,300. And Electric Girls was born.

With such a small, creative atmosphere, you’re really encouraged to push yourself, try new things, and collaborate with others on many levels. So not only do I leverage the skillsets imposed but also the relationships afforded to me as a student and alumnus. So many Loyola grads are willing to help give you a leg up or a helping hand; all you have to do is ask!

Student Profile

ANNALISA SEGA, SENIOR

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES, BIOLOGY

WHERE Conducting summer research at Yale Cardiovascular Research Center as a recipient of the American Heart Association Founders Affiliate Undergraduate Student Summer Research Fellowship H OW S H E G O T T H E R E Volunteered for March of Dimes starting at age 7; became a part of March of Dimes’ National Youth Council as a freshman at Loyola; almost attended school to be a physician’s assistant; decided on Loyola instead; discovered the passion to be a surgeon; pursued research in molecular signaling and blood-brain barriers in preterm babies

At Loyola, I decided I wanted to be a doctor because I knew I was smart enough. Loyola was the only normal undergraduate program I applied to. All of the other schools were five-year master’s programs— fast tracks to a physician assistant degree. It turns out that Loyola was a great decision because here I decided I no longer wanted to be a PA.

COLLEGE OF BUSINESS, ECONOMICS

WHERE A national Venture for America fellow, where he will learn how to build businesses while making an impact on the world and the community H OW H E G O T T H E R E Majored in economics; excelled at Loyola as a student leader and through mentorships around campus; made his mark as an intern at The Rock Hill Department of Housing and Neighborhood Services, Northwestern Mutual, the New Orleans Mayor’s Office, and currently Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses program

I came to Loyola University New Orleans with the

intentions of being ‘my own man.’ I quickly realized that this was not the right attitude. I learned that we are called a ‘wolf pack’ for a reason. It’s important to build relationships, and I depend upon my peers and community to motivate me along the way. With this holistic support, I

was able to grow as a leader, make great decisions, and learn more about myself and what I hope to be in the future.
