Loyola University Maryland Reviews
Review Loyola University Maryland
I loved the size and academic opportunities, as well as the extracurriculars. The size was perfect because it is nearly impossible to walk across campus without seeing someone you know and saying "hi"; however, I meet new people all the time! Loyola has really strong academics, with professors who take the time to get to know each individual student and are constantly available for extra help. The school also hosts activity fairs each semester, and it's really easy and fun to get involved in whatever you want!
The most important thing I could share about this school is that it is a real investment in education. The small class sizes, Jesuit values, and attentive staff will give you an education that other colleges lack. The environment at Loyola is excellent and if you are looking for a college with values than look no further than Loyola. The majority of students at Loyola seem to be natural leaders yet pressure of competitiveness found at other top ranking schools isn't there. Students are not put against each other or broken by being over worked, instead we are encouraged to enjoy learning, enjoy our social lives and ask our selves meaningfull questions that will allow us to grow as individuals. The only thing I would change is more school spirit, but with that being said you'll find that the Greyhounds are loyal to their athletics and dominate on most fields, courts, tracks and pools. Go Greyhounds!
School spirit and the Dog Pound are huge parts of Loyola! The FAC (our main athletic facility for NARPs) is the absolute best. It's difficult at times to get to Ridley, where the lacrosse and soccer teams play, but definitely worth it. Lacrosse is definitely the biggest sport on our campus so you never want to miss a game. Students are always involved from the facilities staff, to taking photos on the field to the student-run cheering section. The sometimes free Chick-Fil-A is always an added plus.
