The Manresa Scholars Program is housed in Loyola Hall, where students will experience an engaging academic and social environment. Within Loyola, students have access to live-in Manresa Tutors and Resident Assistants, a Study Commons, seminar rooms, and the St. Ignatius of Loyola Chapel, where Resident Housemaster Rev. Lito Salazar, S.J. holds weekly Mass. During the fall semester, every Manresa Scholar takes a Manresa Seminar, which is taught by a Manresa professor. Examples of course offerings include “Mind-Body Connection: Introduction to Behavior Health,” “Lost Interlocutor: Philosophy of Human Nature” and “Finch, Seed, and Storm: Adventures in Contemporary Evolution.” This professor also serves as the student’s academic advisor and mentor throughout the adjustment to college academics.

Additional program highlights include service-learning events such as Bronx park clean-ups and tutoring at a local Catholic elementary school, spiritual events such as Jesuit spirituality-inspired yoga in Our Lady’s Chapel, educational programs such as tutor-led midterm review sessions, and social excursions to Manhattan for kayaking or to explore Central Park.
