Iggy Talks is based after Ted Talks, the global conference that brings together brilliant minds to discuss world issues, ideas and discoveries. It is an opportunity for students to begin talking to students about issues and experiences larger than ourselves, experiences meant to uplift us and motivate us.
Residential Life at Loyola is consistently looking for student feedback and finding ways to improve our services, facilities, and relationships with our residents.
The facilities internship position was created to provide students with a better quality facilities experience. Often times, students were unsure if their work orders were received and being addressed. Also, students would not report facilities concerns because they would just “live with it.” In line with Residential Life interest in providing a positive environment for each of our students, the facilities interns were positioned to improve the student experience.
