3 College Sophomore

Academics: Loyola is very supportive and helpful to creating specific majors for each person.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a lot of study areas and the academics are strenuous but worth it. I have learned a lot already even in just one year.

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.

4 College Junior

Academics: I'm an accounting major and it has it's pros and cons. The job placement for the major is AMAZING with the average student making $40K+ right out of college, but the courses and teachers are extremely difficult.

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.
