3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Baltimore is nice if you choose to explore it, the campus can be boring if you do not step out. public transportation is bad so you need a car

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Baltimore is an awesome city. Loyola is in a part of Baltimore that can be kind of dangerous, but it is an EXTREMELY safe campus and students never feel unsafe walking around at school. Getting to the downtown and "more exciting" parts of Baltimore are easy with cabs, which are usually pretty inexpensive. Baltimore is an underrated, awesome city with lots to do. There are bars and clubs, yes, but there are also great places to get dinner with friends, go to museums, shop, and see sporting events.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The best part about Loyola is that it is in Baltimore. Baltimore is a great city for young adults to live, thrive and grow up in due to its many attractions and eateries. Many students that attend Loyola for undergraduate stay here to explore more of the city after graduation.

View all previous student authors

Loyola is located in a nice area, but if you go a few streets over, you are somewhere you would not want to be alone at night. The Inner Harbor is a nice area to visit both during the day and night, and there are restaurants as well as shops lining the waterfront.

There is always plenty to do in the city of Baltimore, whether it be taking the Collegetown shuttle to Towson, going to the mall or out to dinner, taking a cab to the nearby bars, attending concerts and movies, or going to the other schools in the area, such as Johns Hopkins, Goucher, and Notre Dame. The city atmosphere is nice, and there is always a lot to do in the area and in Baltimore.
