5 College Freshman

Academics: The faculty are extremely dedicated to this university. They are experienced teachers with field experience who are there to help you grow as a person. Office hours are always available and professors are accessible not only for students who need help, but also guidance outside of the classroom and class material. Professors check attendance, but students find themselves wanting to go to class all the time because of the good relationships that they establish with their professors. Classes are very small and professors usually know all of the students personally. The workload is heavy, but it is manageable for the typical Loyola student (who is very driven)

The academics at Loyola are above and beyond a typical college education. Loyola has a core program in which all students are required to participate. This program is a great opportunity for Loyola to create well-rounded, worldly students who are intelligent citizens. The subjects required in the core program include history, theology, literature, foreign language, sociology, science, and art. These classes are extremely helpful in giving students at Loyola a balanced education, as is fitting with the values that Loyola is based on.

The classes at Loyola are noted for being very small, generally around 20 students per class. There are some TAs here, and the professors are very attentive and intelligent as well. They are also very eager to teach and easy to communicate with.

Tips to Succeed
  • Go to your professors' office hours.
  • Save the number of the first cab that does not cheat you out of money and picks you up on time, and always call this one.
  • Use the Writing Center.
  • Use www.ratemyprofessor.com.
Did You Know?
  • First-year students can register for a "First Year Program," which falls under one of three categories-Alpha, Collegium, and FE 100. These are just like regular semester-long courses, but they meet for an extra day a week for discussions or group excursions.
  • Loyola College has academic mentor teams to guide incoming freshmen through the sometimes tough transition into college life. Junior and senior volunteers are paired with freshmen to answer questions about class registration, choosing a major, and campus life.
  • The unique thing about Loyola is that the College sends grade reports to parents of freshmen who have less than a C in a course. All Loyola students are bound to the Honor Code, which stresses student integrity.
