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!

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!
Loyola has a very diverse and accepting community, so people from around the world and different backgrounds can connect. Some courses that are required are not necessarily worth the amount of tuition there. Professors with tenure tend to lack teaching you the necessary skills to not only pass their class but to understand the content. There are also professors who belittle students based on the fact that they do not learn on the same spectrum as others. But then there are so many amazing professors and advisors who will find the potential within a student and uplift them to the stars of success. They make you not only feel at home but they guide you to where you're meant to be in the world as you go into adulthood.
