Hundreds of alumni and students of Loyola University New Orleans participate each year in Loyola’s National Day of Community Service, Wolves on the Prowl.
Planned and led by Loyola’s Office of Alumni Engagement, Mission and Ministry, and the Student Government Association, Wolves on the Prowl pairs volunteers from the Loyola community with programs throughout the country that need help.
In New Orleans, volunteers spruced up the playground at KIPP Central City Primary School on Thalia Street.
