Loras College Reviews
A pretty good small college with great academics and nice people. The party scene is ok, but not bad. People mainly go to bars in the dubuque area, house parties (which aren't really fun), or even travel to the university of Iowa to party.
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!
Excellent school. Professors were engaging and actually care about students. All sorts of activities on campus to get involved in. The students are wonderful and easy to get along with.
It has been a great experience! Loras is a very welcoming college and has lots of activities and opportunities to get involved.
The people here are very welcoming. There are a variety of resources to meet learning needs. Broad range of extracurricular activities. Teaching geared toward being both a good student and a good citizen.
Loras College has some really great professors that actually want to help you progress as a student and see you succeed as a professional.
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.
I love the class sizes and how the professors really want to get to know the students. The campus is beautiful and the student life is great!
My first year is going great! Love the classes and love the professors. The only problem is the hills but other than that it is perfect.
Loras College is a small, tight knit community. You see friendly faces everywhere you go and everyone is willing to lend a hand. There are many resources for students to reach out to when it comes to school work. There's people in the library to help you with writing a paper, there are student instructors to help you in challenging classes, and there are endless amounts of people to help you with everyday problems as well. Another plus is that the class sizes are small so you get a more personalized education and the opportunity for you to get to know your professor and vice versa.
Loras College was the perfect fit for me. It was small enough that my professors knew me by first and last name, yet big enough that I wasn't seeing the same people on campus every day. I had so many obtainable opportunities at Loras that I wouldn't have gotten other places. The people at Loras genuinely care about every single student. I had an amazing experience here and would do it over again tomorrow.
Loras College is a great College. The teachers here really care about the students. They are here to help at all costs. The school is also ran by great administration and it keeps getting better each year. The Athletics are also great and the coaches do a great job with all of student athletes.
I love Loras College. Everyone here is very close with each other and the environment is always really positive. My professors are very supportive and understanding. They have helped me through so much. The only thing I would like to see change is the food program at Loras.
I love being a Loras College Duhawk. The campus is beautiful and the people are very friendly. The professors are very knowledgeable and always happy to help you with any problems or questions you may have. It's located in a very scenic area along the Mississippi river with a lot of opportunity for internships and employment.
Loras College offers students a chance to obtain a liberal arts education in classrooms full of diversity. The classes can be challenging but do not make you feel too overwhelmed. With many students coming to Loras from around the country, you are able to interact with many different cultures and backgrounds. With the smaller class sizes, you are able to create better relationships with your professors which helps quite a bit if you are struggling in a class. They always have their doors open and having a chance for a one-on-one interaction helps you fully understand the information being taught.
The Community is amazing. Everyone is super nice and welcoming. There is always an activity going on on campus or in the community that you can participate in.
I loved Loras so much, it was my home. However, when it comes to student conduct, they are absolutely terrible. One student can act aggressive and violent towards another student without getting in trouble. This is all because the student who posed a threat to their peers is a legacy, and have parents who are generous donors. The school talks about fairness and equality when in reality, they just do what they have to do to keep the money coming in.
Loras College is not a widely recognized college in terms of academics, and i dont expect it to be, but if you are an international student, this is not the college for you. Xenophobia has some underlying permanence in this college and it is hard for you to connect with others that arent outsiders like you. Day after day i question my decision and think of transferring, but i lack the resources. Dont make the same mistake i have made. If you are an american student you will have the time of your life however. I hope this helps because i wish someone had told me this before coming...
I like the fact that it is a small school and you can get lots of help from teachers/professors so there is a lot of resources. I'm not a fan of the discrimination level here.
Very safe... I've never felt unsafe, nor have I heard of anything too serious around campus.
