College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I did not have a meal plan but I did try it when I could, but not enough to say details.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: the aspects and everything is great, very rigorous and competitive. Workload for the nursing program is insane but do-able.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: like anywhere else they are those amazing professors and classes that grade you what you earn fairly and others who are just bad, overall it's pretty good though.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Theres a good variety of majors you can choose from.

College Sophomore

Majors: Did not do internships while at this school.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: When asking for off campus housing it is very difficult for them to accept the fact that you won't be giving them that amount of money and they make the whole process more difficult than it should be.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life is pretty big but they do not ask you twice to join, the greeks seem to have several fun events

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of different activities available within a short distance. The availability for public transportation makes it easier to go to a lot of different places.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am going to have an internship because my major requires me to have one before graduation. Not only will it help me gain experience, but it might also help me get a job out of the internship.

3 College Junior

Majors: The admission into the program that I am in right now was not hard. I just had to fill out an internal school transfer form.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics are very good and hold a high standard for students as well

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a wide variety of quality level between professors and the quality of courses that go along with them. I have had both really good courses and professors and at the same time have had not such good courses or professors. There is a lot of different options for some classes, however some have a very limited course number or professors teaching them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of great options for internships available. A lot of majors require an internship before graduating which helps gain experience for a future job and even may lead to a job from the internship.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of off campus dining near school. Anywhere from walking distance to a short ride on the el.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I like how the Halas athletic/recreation center is being renovated and expanded, making it better and easier for the amount of students that are using it.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: There can be a wider variety of options including more healthier options.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Because of its location, the university does its best to provide the appropriate services to keep students safe and to help them feel secure.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The rules established are very firm and it's hard to get around them unless you have help from someone who has access to the system.

5 College Senior

Academics: My major has a lot of opportunities for research and other programs to further ones education in and outside the classroom.

5 College Senior

Academics: The level of education is great and the school provides a lot of opportunities to learn and get involved in areas of interest.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: The food is good and plentiful but the options do not change that often so the same types of food are served throughout the year.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It tends to be typical city apartments and the availability depends on when you look for a place.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The girls on campus are typically better as a whole than I experienced in high school.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The housing is not anything special but it is nice and provides good amenities.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Due to the laws about greek housing there is not a big presence of greek life on campus and are more like social organizations that get involved in the community.

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.
