Greetings from the Island, where the fall term is reaching its peak of glorious foliage and classes are beginning to prepare for fall term exams, multiple athletic teams are readying for playoff action, and the fall play just wrapped a highly successful run. This issue of Explore Loomis will enable you to explore a few of our academic programs in greater depth and provides you with tips on how to have a successful school visit. If you have not yet made plans to visit Loomis, we would strongly recommend doing so as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you on our beautiful campus!
