5 College Freshman

Facilities: The library and fitness center are both awesome facilities, very clean and new. When the weather is nice, everyone tans and sits on the grass in the quad, which is really fun. People have barbecues outside of their residence halls and there are obviously people who do the typical college thing and play frisbee.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The FAC is one of the best in the country, and students love to meet there and work out together. It's not uncommon to see a bunch of your classmates/friends there. Loyola students are all really involved, and people all seem to know each other and get along.

The Fitness and Aquatic Center, commonly known as the FAC, is a gorgeous facility that Loyola is very proud of. It is very popular among students and faculty alike. There's a rock-climbing wall, a weight-lifting room, a few pools, a sauna, an indoor track, workout rooms for different fitness classes, and racquetball, basketball, and floor hockey courts. You can take any class that interests you, including yoga, Pilates, body pump, and water aerobics. During the first few weeks of each semester, the FAC offers these classes for free. This is a great time to try out many classes and decide which ones you like best. It is also a fun time to try out all that the FAC has to offer and make friends along the way— because everyone is there to work out, have fun, and meet new people, especially in these first few weeks. The pool at the FAC is also well known as one of the pools that Michael Phelps uses to train. Many students hope to see him one day while they are working out.

The campus itself is beautiful. The student center is a great place to do homework, chat with friends, or grab a coffee and something to eat. Boulder Garden Café in the student center is very popular among the students and has comfortable and abundant seating. There is also a sushi restaurant, Starbucks, and Red Mango located in this building. Students also love to sit on the porch of the humanities building, and in the nice weather the Quad is a popular place to sit and hang out with friends or do homework.

Favorite Things To Do
There is not very much to do on campus at Loyola-which seems to be the top student complaint. Going to the FAC to work out seems to be one of the most popular social activities. The only other real on-campus option is going to get food in one of the dining halls with your friends.
