3 College Senior

Nightlife: Its basically a dry campus because of how small it is and how strict the rules are. There are frat parties at John Hopkins but they are not the safest. We are mostly a bar school, which gets expensive.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are plenty of places to go out!

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Even though Loyola lacks the traditional party atmosphere that most colleges have (frat parties, etc.), it is still a very fun school that is very easy to have a lot of fun at. The local bars receive the most campus attention and are favorite weekend spots, but it's even more fun to go exploring in Baltimore to bars and clubs downtown. It's really easy to get around with cabs that are always lined up outside of campus and Uber cars if your parents are willing to pay for that.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't go out to bars or clubs; I don't enjoy a party atmosphere

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: On campus night life is very loud and revolves only on drinking.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There are always plenty of things to do in and around Loyola and Baltimore at night. Being that Loyola has no fraternities or sororities, many students choose to go out in the city and some areas closer to campus. Loyola is primarily a bar school—where students choose to party and drink at a bar as opposed to in the dorms—and many students frequent the bars on nearby York Road. There are small parties that occur on campus, but most students choose to go out or go to parties at Johns Hopkins fraternities.

There is a group on campus called Options, which offers alternatives to partying and going out in the city. This group puts together trips, such as visits to Hershey Park, New York City, bowling, sledding, etc., depending on the season. These trips are open to all students and are a lot of fun. The school also offers a late night option on Friday and Saturday nights called Midnight Breakfast. This is a favorite campus-wide event, where a free breakfast is offered to all students in Boulder Garden Café, one of the main dining halls. This is a great option for all students to get a midnight snack and have somewhere to hang out with their friends on the weekends.
