It is not worth the price. The campus is pretty but that is mostly it. There are some good professors but good luck getting into the classes if you are not an honor student or given early access due to a disability. For some reason, the campus is windier than the rest of the city. The students are nice and there is diversity, but the students tend self-segregate, so it is not that apparent. Pretty much everyone is a pre-med student, so if you enjoy dealing with pretentious masochists who incessantly whine every day about how difficult it is being a pre-med student then this school is for you! Moreover, you will have better luck getting academic advice from the internet or your partly-deaf grandmother than the advisors at this university. Also when visiting this school, be wary of the raving reviews that the tour guides tell you because, after all, they are getting paid to portray the school in a good light. Overall, you are better off going to an in-state school for half the price.

Great school to attend. Faculty and staff are willing to help you to succeed! The school is located in one of the finest neighborhood in Chicago. Faculty and staff are easily accessible. For out-of-state and international students, the school has different activities on campus to keep them busy. For students who like to advocate for causes such as social justices, the school also has an organization where students can volunteer their time.
I love the campus and everything about it. The professors are very well educated and I really enjoyed staying in class and seeing how they teach. Loyola cares about their students and want them to succeed in life. Also, the community is great! Everyone is so nice and it seemed very easy to make friends. The food was also pretty good and the dinning hall had a lot of options. The dorms are also a nice size and it felt like I was at home in the city of Chicago. I loved Loyola and hopefully I will get the opportunity to go there!
