President Fr. Gregory M. Goethals, SJ ’73 was joined by Loyola Board Chairman Rick Caruso, Vice President for Advancement Lela Diaz, donors, alumni and many other members of the Loyola community as they dug into the historic 1901 Venice Boulevard soil. The evening kicked off the rebuilding of Xavier Center, the enhancement of Hayden Circle and the creating of a Veterans’ Wall of Honor, saluting past and present Cubs serving our country.

The 1901 Venice Boulevard Project is scheduled for completion in late 2020. For more information, please click here for Loyola’s press release that highlights this historic event.
