    What I love about Loyola University New Orleans is that it is a school that is inclusive of every single person. The school wants the very best for their students. At Loyola University there is a club or organization for each individual based on what kind of person he or she is and the things that he or she enjoys. Whatever the students need, Loyola makes sure that they have it!
    Loyola is an alright school. From the year I've had since I first attended the main issues at the start was the finances. Thankfully, I was able to cover the worst of it, but this is an expensive school overall. The food was just decent, only gripe was how limited in variety the food choices were and how certain options were reoccurring too often (breakfast always consisted of the same choices every day and the lunch & dinner choices were mostly the same foods everyday with some difference every-so-often) The dorm freshman building was terrible. It was a small room intended for two people, but as someone particularly keen on space, there was little breathing room between me and the other person as I just had enough room for a little twin-sized bed and hardly enough room for my own desk. Though, my roommate had to leave just as they showed up because they barely had much financial support, and the person had come on military benefits, however that proved mostly useless on their end.
