Loyola University Maryland Reviews

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.

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!
