From Loyola University Chicago

From the moment you step on campus, we make an impression. It might be the lakefront property, nationally ranked degree programs, our Jesuit mission, or our Rogers Park neighbors. But, we are not just that pretty campus. Loyola is downtown in the heart of Chicago. We also have a campus in Rome, Italy—and our degree programs bring our expertise and mission to you. Get to know us and our undergraduate, graduate, or adult education programs.
