Duhawks & Friends — THANK YOU for your support and spirit!

Loras College's 2nd annual Duhawk Day was held on Thursday, May 22, 2014. A sea of purple and gold spirit spread across social media and the day was a celebration of the many reasons we all love Loras College.

Duhawk Day was celebrated in 17 events across the country with more than 400 attendees and thousands of individuals participating through social media and informal gatherings. In the 175 years of Loras history, there has never been a day which has generated this much spirit and ignited so many donations to support our students.


On a Mission
The word legacy originates from Old French, meaning "a body of people sent on a mission." For this College, the body of people began with one man, Bishop Mathias Loras, who settled in Dubuque and quickly founded what was then called St. Raphael's Seminary. The seminary became a center of spiritual and vocational formation of young men and a place of instruction and mentoring by clerical teachers. MORE >>
Catholic Social Teaching Competition
This spring marked the 5th year of Loras College's Catholic Social Teaching (CST) Business Case Competition, created by Professor of Accounting Karen Sturm. For the competition, teams of students select a contemporary business problem, decision, or dilemma which can be a real-world case or a typical business issue set in a real-world company, involving an ethical issue, not a legal issue.
