Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know anything about the off campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are all pretty nice, but the lottery is kind of unfair.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are a lot of different options, but the quality of the food could be much better.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of interesting clubs and people to get to know on campus. The academics are really great and I would most likely apply to my school again if I had the chance to do it all over.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students are all friendly and outgoing, but can be somewhat stuck up in certain situations.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life at Loyola University

5 College Sophomore

Academics: My major includes a lot of literary work. Communication and Writing with a minor in English is a hefty load. However, I look forward to the challenge. If I get to do work with editing and publishing, I know I will fully enjoy my schedule. I plan on pursuing a career in the publishing field and this curriculum will help me get the best training possible. The Apprentice House, which is the student-run publication house on campus is opening spots on staff next year and I hope to obtain a place as a member. It is exactly like the fieldwork I plan on doing and aside from giving me the experience, it will also be a great thing to put on my resume for future job and internship applications.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The is a wide range of possibilities for majors and minors offered to students and the professors that teach them can be very helpful if the student engages them. It can be a great thing to ask a professor for help and build a foundation and have that educator as a resource for future references. They can open doors for you that would otherwise stay locked. The curriculum, though rigorous is doable if the student studies and works hard. There are many resources on campus to go to for help and that ranges on a wide spectrum as well. For instance, the writing center doesn't only help with revising papers, it will help you start the paper, brainstorm, and organize. There are so many little places to find on campus that will provide a quiet place to study. There is no end to the possibilities the school offers for help on homework and projects to the support you get for the hard work. The challenge is real, but not impossible.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in a double suite, which is two room's connected by a bathroom. The idea is to create a friendly atmosphere with your "suitemates." There wasn't an abundance of space, but there was an adequate amount for two people to live comfortably. There was an easy, friendly, neighborly feel about the building which provided a good living situation. Other than this there were other dorms which were only one-room with two beds and the floor shared a communal bathroom. Other halls were suites and apartments, which upperclassmen use most of the time. There is more space, and there is a sitting room, and a full kitchen. Much more convenient and the students are much more independent in that, they can cook and clean for themselves.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: My school has zero toleration for alcohol or drugs on campus. It promotes healthy lifestyles and encourages students to abide by the rules of the school. If a students is caught with either alcohol or drugs, proper action is taken.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The student life varies based on social life, interests, dress codes, and other things. There are many couples seen around campus. You will also see many groups of students, who will either be hanging out at Starbucks or having a study session at the library. The dress code changes with the weather, ranging from skirts and shorts in the winter to jeans and sweats in the winter. the student body at Loyola is casual and in my opinion, what a normal class on campus looks like.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I was in a dorm room for my school year, but I have never heard of complaints and from what I have seen, the off-campus housing seems pleasant.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: My friends and I never had trouble finding a place to eat outside of campus. We were never unsatisfied when we went out to the Inner Harbor or to the movies and out to eat afterward. It was always a great time, and we never felt that service or options were unfair or negative in any way. Getting off campus was easy and inexpensive. Usually, just a short cab ride away. Some places offered discounts because we were students and some accepted Evergreen, which is our student account and we could pay with that. Overall, off-campus dining was never an unpleasant experience.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police is easily accessed and quick to respond. There are also emergency posts located all throughout the campus. I have never had a problem and have never had to, or felt that I had to call campus police while walking alone on campus. I feel entirely safe while walking at night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining hall was called Boulder Café. It wasn't the best place on campus and often it was crowded. The food wasn't always satisfactory but one meal plan entitled you to the entire buffet, so you never left hungry. Besides the Café, there was the Reading room, which sold yogurt and cereal, oatmeal, waffles, sandwiches and plenty more. When kids had to grab and go this was the hot spot. Last, was a place called Iggy's which was a dining hall on the other side of campus. You could use a meal plan or declining dollars and get an entrée, a side, dessert and a drink. There was also a market in Iggy's and in one of the student dorms where students could use declining to buy ice cream, Gatorade, mac and cheese and much more. Overall, the dining options were very flexible and satisfying.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The year that I spent at Loyola University Maryland has been the most challenging, enjoyable, and enlightening experience of my life. The Ignatius Scholarship Program was one of my favorite memories, I met so many new people and it was the first time I had ever been on my own, but I was still under someone's wing. The Directors cared about us, expected us to do our best. Even though they expected us to be capable of doing the work, they never left us without help. I owe so much to the Program and I am thankful that I was admitted into it. The rest of the year was amazing, though full of work, I loved every minute of it. I wouldn't change my decision if I could go back and do it a hundred times.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My major is Interdisciplinary with Communication and Writing with a minor in English. It took me until the end of my first year to find out about this major. I had been talking with my writing professor and it was she who advised me on this particular program. This can be considered a large workload because of all the different subjects included in the program. However, this is the kind of work I plan on doing in the future in my career. I enjoy this work and I hope to be able to join the staff on my school's Apprentice House. This is the student-run publication house on campus and the work they do all year-round is the kind that I hope to make a career out of. As the new school year comes around there should be openings for new members, hopefully there will be a spot for me. All I can offer for admission would be to be honest and open to possibilities, and be ready to work. You have to be enthusiastic about the job, that proved to be beneficial to me when I spoke with one of the directors.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The program consists of a lot of reading and writing, which is to be expected. The professors will be very helpful to you and they will make themselves available to offer any further assistant needed. However, they also are not afraid to demand the most from you and challenge you. They know you can handle it but they will push you to realize it as well. Internships and job opportunities are available to students, mostly just juniors and seniors but the school encourages students to become informed as soon as possible. I very much enjoy my program at school, the work is hard at times but very rewarding all the time.

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.
