Loyola University Chicago Reviews
Its a great school with a great environment! Very liberal and super environmentally friendly! Not much of party scene but thats ok because everyone here is for the education and that seems to be the main focus even on the weekends. Right off the el stop so you've got access to all of the city, which is super fun to explore, especially all the cool hip places! A very green environment for an urban campus and the lake is beautiful year round! It can get cold in the winter but its worth the amazing education you will receive here.
Personally, I enjoy the hospitality that many of the faculty and staff create for new/transfer students. While not much can be said about the individual students themselves, there is a relatively safe and comfortable atmosphere among the students and campuses in general. Many of the professors are very flexible with their schedule and provide much needed assistance any day of the week. Much of the extracurricular activities, professional sports teams, clubs, student-led organizations, and fraternities/sororities are involved extensively in the Jesuit philosophy of selflessness, compassion, and service. The university provides a considerable amount of financial aid to its students and heavily prioritizes the education and well-being of all of its members. Additionally, the university offers hundreds of majors and minors, along with several graduate degree opportunities, offering the finest equipment and resources for their schools of Law, Communication, Business, and Medicine.
Loyola is a beautiful campus right on the lake of one of the most energetic cities in America! This location allows for so many incredible opportunities for research programs and internships, and the academics at this school definitely prepare students for a future in the real world as they are receiving so much real world experience even as an undergrad.
