to the Stritch School of Medicine
Seven “DREAMers” Officially Join the Class of 2018
On August 4, the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine will welcome its Class of 2018, 160 students who will spend the next four years working to achieve their dream—to become physicians. Adding to this historic day is the presence of seven “DREAMers” in the class.
This welcome comes nearly two years after Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine became the first medical school to amend its admissions policies to include qualified students who have received Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status. Join us to welcome these students and learn more about how this day was made possible by the Stritch School of Medicine, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, and the Illinois Finance Authority.
The Stritch School of Medicine is a closed campus. To attend the event, or for media inquiries, please contact Evie Polsley at 708.417.5100. Also, please have your media credentials displayed on your vehicle’s dashboard when entering the Health Sciences Campus. For a parking map, click here.
