    I had a great experience at Loyola. The people are great (surround yourself with people you want to be around!), the facilities are top notch, the food choices are good if you make an effort to look around and the atmosphere is always positive and conducive to learning. The academics at Loyola are rigorous and you must stay on top of your game to earn a competitive GPA. Loyola students work hard and play hard!
    The only downside to Loyola is that the school is expensive and the majority of "parties" are off-campus bars/clubs which can also become an expense.
    Diversity at Loyola is solid...could be better but the dedicated and newly expanded multicultural center is a melting pot for people of all different minority races.

    I’m a freshman and was between here and a larger more well known school. I picked Loyola due to the speech and language program and small class sizes. The campus is beautiful but the area around us is bad. I didn’t let that sway my decision because security are fantastic and most of the colleges I looked at were in bad neighborhoods. What I’m unhappy about is that the student body is so cliquey! Worse than my HS! Yes, the students are friendly but they find their friends in the first week or two and than your left with no one.Social life is off campus at the bars - get a fake ID. They try to have events but some of them are lame. I wish they had shuttles to go to the mall or target once a month. It’s def an Uber school. I like my classes and my professors, but the social life is the negative. My roommate stinks and told me she doesn’t want to be friends with me, my RA is nice , but hasn’t planned one event. I’m considering transferring which is a big bummer.
    Although Loyola's academics are absolutely top-notch, It's hard to stay on track academically when nothing you do helps socially, yes that includes clubs which are limited to a bland extension of high school. Some feel like extra courses. Loyola's reputation for being cliquey is no joke. Lots of mean-spirited people. Diversity is somewhat present but very separate overall. If you ENROLL here you will notice it and it is very hard to fit in. I was attracted to Loyola for the supposed solid values such as "Strong Truths Well Lived" and "Serve in a diverse and changing world". Unfortunately, after going through almost my whole college experience I can honestly say that this is not what the majority of Loyola students fully stand by. If you think independently, save yourself the time. Exclusivity is embedded in the culture here and unfortunately it is here to stay. Too many left out are faced with the choice of adapting or transferring.
