Loyola University New Orleans Reviews
Loyola University is an amazing place to be part of. The community, peers, and educators instantly become a very present and helpful part of your life. The sense of community and belonging in this school is absolutely wonderful. Perhaps, Loyola is extremely resourceful and owns many different connections that facilitate your changes of gaining experience within your field in many ways. Additionally, Loyola's educators aren't just full time professors, but are active workers within the fields that they teach. Loyola is a place that you will not regret to be part of. I certainly do not!
Transferred to Loyola after my freshman year at a much larger school with an international reputation (considered among the "ivy league plus" schools), and found the environment at Loyola to be the complete opposite in the best way possible. Classes are small, faculty members are extremely knowledgeable and attentive, classmates are congenial and supportive, and the general environment on campus is much more supportive of the individual. There is extremely helpful and useful counseling center on campus with no limits to visits (a huge plus where my past school at wait times were weeks long and visits were numerated), it's not necessarily close to downtown but getting to downtown couldn't be simpler with a $1.25 streetcar ride being the easiest way to get there, and it is in an incredible area of town in which to be a student.
I love Loyola!!! After finishing my freshman year i can safely say it was one of the best years of my life, they are the embodiment of all that a liberal arts college should be! The faculty are patient and extremely proficient in teaching their fields. All of the jazz and music therapy faculty not only began to give the skills and knowledge needed for my career, but have given my peers and I ample opportunity to explore and experience internships, volunteer, and work opportunities in the city of New Orleans. Campus life is great, everybody on campus is inspired and motivated towards their own goals and are always seeking to collaborate and learn from others. The school itself reflects the city of New Orleans, it is individualistic, diverse, and is a safe place to explore different career paths and multiple forms of artistic expression. Couldn't have asked for a better first year of college!
