Loras Traditions

Victory Bell

Legend is the bell hung on Mount. St. Bernard’s Seminary (Loras’ predecessor) and recovered after the Civil War. First-year students ring the bell upon enrolling in school, and seniors ring it after their last class, signifying another victory.

Launch into Loras

Start your college experience by moving in before returning students and getting to know your classmates. Your time will be filled with activities to help orient you to campus, build relationships, and have fun!

Late Night Cafe

Come from 9 to 10 p.m. to get breakfast food, relax from finals stress, and hang with other Duhawks. A few of your favorite faculty and staff members will serve in the stations. We always have favorites on the menu!

Painting the Hill

Every October, before homecoming, students paint the hill with a message to the community. This tradition has been photographed since the early 1950s and remains one of the most recognized and beloved traditions for students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

In the wintertime, students and local families enjoy sledding down the hill using sleds—or cafeteria trays in the not-so-distant past.

Duhawk Day

Wear your favorite purple and gold on one of the best days of the year! Across the globe, Duhawks celebrate, unite, and support the place we all love, Loras College. Mark your calendar for Duhawk Day every March.

The Loras Legacy Symposium showcases your academic achievements. This special day is for everyone to celebrate and share scholarly accomplishments through presentations, poster sessions, and a film festival.
