Loyola University Chicago Graduate Reviews

28 reviews
Loyola University Chicago is a beautiful school with two campuses. The main campus is right on lake Michigan and has a large quad. The graduate campus is in downtown Chicago right off the Magnificent Mile! My professors were good, and I feel like I got a lot out of my classes. However, it can be discouraging to feel like a number at such a large university. There wasn't much personal support, and it can be difficult to get the answers you need from admin and registrar.

Loyola University Chicago is an engaging institution in high education. Rigorous coursework emphasizes theoretical and empirical applications of social science methods and ideas. Loyola University’s proximity to the City of Chicago has allowed me, a student in sociology, to extend learning beyond the classroom. One of the most important aspects of my graduate career at Loyola University has been the opportunity to do social science research in a variety of different topic areas. Loyola’s center for social science research, the Center for Urban Research and Learning has been an important component of my training as a sociologist and as a researcher. I have had the opportunity to collaborate on a variety of projects with numerous community partners such as the Cook Country Court Systems. As a student, I am joyed when learning can be used as a tool to address social problems and explore solutions that are proximal to community needs.
I have had a good experience as far as in-class experiences, great professors and learning environments. Had some administrative issues, information being lost or communication problems.
