Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Loyola's students are quick to point out the school's faults. There is little sugar-coating in their appraisal of the school as a financial mess that is so rife with incompetence that it is hard to accomplish even the simplest administrative tasks without putting up a fight. That said, most Loyolans love their school. They see its faults as nothing more than additional challenges they must face on their way to graduation. The majority of students would prefer to look past all the talk of budget cuts and program eliminations they hear during the course of their academic careers and focus on the positives. Loyola offers a quality education for those who are willing to work at it.

Are the administrative problems at Loyola disruptive to a student's studies? Definitely. Should this scare you away from Chicago's Jesuit institution? No. Loyola is starting to come slowly out of its period of financial distress. Fewer cutbacks are expected as incoming class sizes grow in size. Outside of the classroom, the University is actually growing and improving by the day. Most of the buildings around campus are slowly being renovated; the University has a feeling of newness to it, and this is a good thing for freshmen just out of high school. Not only do you get a new beginning, but you get new facilities to make that start in. Many students who have graduated recently look at the campus improvements with jealousy, wishing they had been given the opportunity to make use of them. Students may be split on their feelings about Loyola, but it appears that the University is in the process of rebuilding itself anew. It is up to young scholars to follow suit.
