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.
Love the support and the opportunities Loras has provided me with. They have provided me with the opportunity to study abroad and discover new areas of interest in my education and in hobbies. Their Activities Board is fantastic to help students de-stress and get out of their rooms weekly, and give new chances to experience new things.
