Review Loyola University New Orleans
Loyola University in New Orleans is composed of a diverse student body, all of whom are passionate about social justice issues. The community at this college is very small and tight-knit, you will recognize a friendly face almost everywhere on campus. What sealed my decision in attending this university is the intimacy of small lecture courses, and a maneuverable campus. While larger state schools can make one feel lost in a crowd of thousands, Loyola's staff makes an effort to get to know each of their students. Since the lecture classes are smaller than typical university's, it stimulates effective discussion and debate. Moreover, the campus is very easy to navigate, which also makes for a comforting environment. Lastly, I think the college could benefit from providing a wider range of food selections for its students. Since many do not own a car to drive to local eateries, it would be beneficial for the school to provide more food vendors.
Loyola was where I really saw myself grow as a soloist and an orchestral musician. Even on my time off from classes I received volunteer and career opportunities. Helping with the Viola section while volunteering to play with the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra under Dr. Jean Montes was a great learning experience for me and the students I worked with. Playing in ensemble 504 was another way for me to excel and visualize how the orchestral world operated. While in school we played some of the best and professional pieces of the classical world. I also was given the opportunity to perform with Mrs. Nadja Solerno Sonnemberg and Mark O’Connor, which was both educational and thrilling. Both musicians were very inspirational and it was a great honor to perform with them. Overall Loyola wasn’t easy but I’m glad to say that the experience I had was very life changing and hope that I can utilize what I’ve learned to further my career in music.
I love Loyola. It is welcoming, academically challenging and a beautiful campus. It's located in a great part of New Orleans and it's easy to get off campus for a job, event or party. There are dozens of cheap and really good restaurants around, plus shopping on Magazine Street or relaxing in Audubon Park. The students are happy, intelligent and socially conscious while the layout of the school promotes safety since it's so well lit and visible. It takes about 5 minutes to get from one side of campus to the other, so getting to class from the dorms or parking garages is easy. The classes are interesting and it's easy to register for the classes you want, since advisors will always help you select classes that fit your schedule and interests. There is plenty of green space around campus and at the park across the street so it's easy to get away from city life if need be.
