Peosta Siblings Find Loras College is Right for Them

It's great to be a Duhawk! Just ask the Ney family—this fall, all four of the siblings from Peosta, Iowa, will be attending Loras. The siblings found that, despite their individual academic and co-curricular interests, Loras was the best fit for all of them.

Loras College has a strong tradition of both legacy students and students who are the first in the family to attend college. The Ney family story is a great example of the academic and co-curricular diversity Loras offers, providing opportunities for each of the siblings to pursue their unique interests, and remain close to home—and each other.
