2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There are many policies regarding students' academic and social lives. It is possible not to get caught with alcohol/drugs but if you are caught you will be punished. Surprisingly, they try not to label it as "punishment", but rather, "documentation."

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't begun looking at off-campus housing, but I know some students who have moved off campus. It's extremely close to campus.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek Life.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There aren't really parties. Many students go out to the bars.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms are better than others, but I generally like most of the buildings.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There's a lot of stuff to do, you just have to find the opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is not a lot of crime on campus, but it exists nearby. Students get email and texts alerts whenever there is crime near campus.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Loyola is known for its top lacrosse team. Other than that, Loyola is relatively unknown. The biggest gripe I have is that there is not a varsity baseball team. Like, seriously?! If there was one, club baseball would not be as competitive, and easier to get on the team. Also, there is not a baseball field anywhere near campus. This was very disappointing.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The fitness and aquatic center or the FAC is Loyola's pride as it is a brand new facility that contains numerous activities for students. The quad is the green space, even if it is a little small, it is still a great spot to hang out. The library is the place to go if you need to study or get a paper done quickly with absolute silence.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Being in Baltimore does not mean in the city of Baltimore. It is pretty difficult to get into the city without having to spend a ton of money. Cabs are essentially the only method to getting anywhere, as the bus is completely unreliable. The Inner Harbor is great, but getting there is a pain. I am hoping that this will be a complaint of the past, as I will be able to explore more now that I am older, and almost 21.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is very apparent. With many loyola police cars on campus and the surround area, I feel safe. On campus is safe, however once you move towards York road, it can become extremely dangerous. I have gotten emails of confirmed shootings, stabbings and mobile criminals. Nothing has ever happened on campus, but we have been warned by the security officers to stay alert while on York road.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Loyola just realized its meal plan and dining options were lacking, so they renovated the main dining hall last summer and installed a new meal plan. While this change has improved the campus dining immensely, it is still not that impressive. There is not much variety, and is not near the level of other universities. I'm hoping for an improved experience this semester.

College Junior

Overall Experience: Being a rising junior, I will find out most of the career opportunities this semester. What I can say is that I know there are many internship prospects available to all students, as some of my friends have already gotten an internship.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics at Loyola is superb. From understanding professors to the technology in the classrooms, Loyola's priority is academics and how to best offer it to the students. While the workload is demanding, every student can find time for relaxation and recreation.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Amazing dormitories. Easily the best college dorms I've ever seen.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: Loyola, being a Jesuit institution, does not offer fraternities or sororities to students, thus resulting in minimal parties. The only option left to students is to go to bars. While this can be fun, it is mostly a fruitless endeavor because half the student body is underage. I believe it will improve, however, as soon as I turn 21.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Overall, the experience at Loyola is dampened slightly due to the strictness level. Over reactions to minor offenses lead to unnecessary meetings and fines for undergraduates. Sometimes it seems that Loyola wants more money from its students, even after the huge $60,000 price tag.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It varies depending on the day, sometimes it's great and other times it's not. Free midnight breakfast is always a plus!

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Mainly white but there is some diversity

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Mainly preppy, depends on who you hang out with. There are many who aren't preppy if you find them.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's a nice area in Baltimore, nice to go on walks in the surrounding neighborhoods

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The food options are great but you need a car to get to them. Otherwise you're stuck on campus

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Love the housing. Rooms are big and nice

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got no scholarships and its a struggle to keep applying for aid.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

For freshmen everywhere, the first few weeks, maybe even semesters, of college life can be a daunting experience. Sharing a room with a total stranger, making a whole new circle of friends, and learning how to cope with professors and lecture classes can be enough to make anyone rethink the decision to go away to school. Fortunately for students at Loyola, these anxieties are quickly replaced by school pride and affection for the intelligent professors, gorgeous dormitories, and exciting nightlife. The opportunities at Loyola are endless. You can take part in student government groups and get hands-on experiences. If you're more of a sports star, there are intramural and club sports to join. And as Loyola students love to do, there's always a bar nearby for taking a break from the books.

Many students have found that, throughout their experiences at Loyola, it has truly become their second home right away. There are always plenty of events happening on campus, especially at the beginning of the year, and these events, such as the freshman party on the Quad and casino night, are a great way to make lifelong friends. There is truly something for everyone at Loyola, and the community and closeness of the students here make it easy for all students to find a place here.
