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!
I transferred to Loyola University in my Junior year of college to pursue a degree in music industry studies. Choosing to transfer to Loyola was one of the best decisions of my life. Living in the city of New Orleans is already a great way to study music, but being able to study music at Loyola University in New Orleans is a formidable combination for the aspiring musician. The teachers in the music department are of the highest quality. I would highly recommend this institution to anyone looking to study music or anything else the university may offer.
