About Us

CSO provides commuter students a safe and inclusive environment where students can engage and connect with each other to foster a deeper sense of belonging and connection to the Loyola community. We offer a variety of programming throughout the semester for commuter students to engage in, make connections, and make the most of their time on campus.
