Thank You for Making Ramblers Rally Day a Success!
Ramblers Rally Daywas an incredible success thanks to the outpouring of support from alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends.
We exceeded our goal of securing 350 donors and $100,000. By the end of the day, 357 donors contributed more than $140,000 to support our current students in the classroom, on the playing field, in the theater, in their commitment to serving others and beyond. This is the highest number of online gifts ever received in one day in Loyola's history.

McGrath, SJ, spoke about the busyness of the world—the chatter and the noise—that can distract from the heart of what matters: the goodness.
