Loras Legacy Symposium Part V: Faculty & Staff Presentations

The Loras College Legacy Symposium is an annual event that showcases the spectacular work done by students and faculty over the past academic year. Featuring presentations of student research, service presentations, creative performances and more, the all-day showcase celebrates the achievements of Duhawks.
