As an international student that had never lived in the USA before starting college, I feel as though Loyola was an excellent choice for me. Everyone (the students, the professors, the athletics coordinations/coaches) is so friendly, and due to Loyola's size, after the first few weeks of school you can't walk across campus without seeing a close friend! Despite the high acceptance rate, the academics are challenging yet interesting, and therefore worthwhile. Loyola's core curriculum, although intimidating at first, is extremely valuable in ensuring every student's education is well rounded (plus it helps to break up the classes for your major, which certainly helps me to stay focused by doing something different). Overall, I love Loyola, and am so happy with my decision to become a Greyhound!

I found Loyola University Maryland to be a bit too small and insular for me. Student life seemed to revolve heavily around extracurricular activities, though I found my Honors courses to be challenging and I loved the professors in the French Department. I did not enjoy college very much. Luckily, Loyola had one of the strongest study abroad programs at the time and I used that as an opportunity to study abroad two semesters in a row, plus a summer course away in the Caribbean, which were unforgettable experiences!
I loved the jesuit tradition that is enforced at this school. By having a core curriculum, it helps students to become well rounded people. You do not just take classes that are for your major. You get to take classes that you probably would never take and likely, most people end up really enjoying those classes, and even majoring in that field (which is what happened to me). The small classroom allows you to form close relationships with your professor that sets you up to succeed even more!
