I love Loras College! The education and environment is absolutely incredible. The professors are deeply invested in their students and the environment is filled with Duhawk pride! Although the food and housing could be updated/altered, everything else makes up for it. I am more than happy with my choice to attend Loras!

I have been here for less than a year but I am already blown away by how much I love the school! The community is so tight-knit and welcoming, which is a big perk of a small school. The professors genuinely care about you and do whatever it takes for you to succeed, even answering homework questions via email in the middle of the night. I would highly recommend checking out the school.
What do you think of when you hear purple and gold? That's right DUHAWKS! Our student body bleeds purple and gold. No one holds more school spirit than the students of Loras College. Although Loras may not be a division one athletic school, you can always catch our students supporting one another. Our schools motto is "Duhawks support Duhawks". This year, our men's soccer team was in the NCAA championship. Despite Kansas City may be six hours away, that did not stop our fans from attending the game. Loras' student unity truly sticks out, which makes it such a desirable institution.
