Loyola University Chicago Reviews
Review Loyola University Chicago
I love the rich student diversity on campus. I am constantly in awe of the students that I am surrounded by in my classes everyday as they all come from different backgrounds and contribute to the diversity on campus. Loyola's campus is also gorgeous! Taking a stroll around campus during the fall or summer time immediately puts me in a better mood. One thing that disappoints me about LUC, however, is the financial aid office because they are not accessible or helpful to students.
I'm currently a senior at LUC and I have definitely enjoyed my four years here. There is a lot to do because you're so close to the city. I will say that there are not many parties (mostly just run by fraternities), so turning 21 and going to the bars made me enjoy the city a bit more. The campus is beautiful, despite the area around it being not so great. The classes aren't too hard, but they are challenging enough where you don't feel like it's too easy. I enjoyed my time here, even though my wallet has been emptied!
I like the campus itself. It's truly beautiful; it faces the lake and it is just a god-sent to wake up to every morning. The cool thing about Loyola is that there's always something to do. Whether it's events in your residence hall, events on campus, or just studying for your major, I feel like it is pretty hard to be bored on this campus. I'm giving it three stars because I personally find it to be challenging here, but only because my major (which is Nursing!) is pretty difficult! It is definitely more oriented around academics and less around the party scene. If you want to go to a place where you will actually get stuff done and not just drink your problems away at the bar, then here's the place. Other than that, the campus gives off a fun vibe, but people here know how to buckle down and do well.
