3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great places to eat, but not always close and available or great for a college budget.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There seems to be a lot of off campus housing available.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Uptown is kind of isolated and the streetcar only runs sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Beautiful, diverse and driven people.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus is generally lenient, but it is a college campus in New Orleans so I feel that should be expected.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Overall I wish the school had a stronger focus on athletics.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity makes the school. Simply compare it to Tulane.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The department chairs and advisors work with you.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The Poly-sci program is run quite well.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Kind of pointless at Loyola.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's NOLA, when it's not storming it's beautiful.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Connection is slow but one is usually available

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The verification process is hell. Loyola's no help

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love being a part of a sorority, but it doesn't affect your social life if you aren't apart of greek life.

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe. Emails go out when a crime is committed on or around Loyola/Tulane

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of concerts in New Orleans. Many bars, clubs, ect.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not strict at all. Freshman are allowed 24 hour visitation. People drink and smoke in their dorm often.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The street car is 1.50 but it takes about an hour to get downtown from Loyola. Taxis are not only expensive but they are hard to find and sometimes take up to an hour to come to pick you up.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am a psychology major. I love Loyolas psychology department. Every professor I had is very knowledgeable. Professors really get to know you because of the small class sizes. The workload isn't too bad, but there is a lot of studying to do.

Campus Housing: Last year I lived in Biever, the freshman dorm. I'm told it is the worst dorm on campus but I didn't find it to be too bad. Biever has one bathroom for the whole hall (about 40 people). It gets dirty on the weekends but other than that it's not too bad. There are about 6 showers per bathroom and I've never had to wait for a shower. All the freshman in one dorm makes is a great way to make friends. I loved having most all my friends in the same building. Dorm life is very expensive compared to living off campus. Living off campus is about half the price of living in a Loyola dorm. The dorms are conveniently close to classes. I wake up 5 minutes before my first class and make it there on time.

Computers: Printing in the library is a pain. Some computers print while others don't so it's kind of a guessing game that can get frustrating very quickly. Printing is free. There are no color printers on campus unless you are a design major. I recommend bringing your own printer. The wireless is very slow during finals and it seems to stop working at the most inconvenient times. Sometimes the internet is out for days at a time.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is great the majority of the year. Summers are very hot and humid but the extreme heat only lasts for about a month. You get used to the heat quickly.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a merit scholarship. I have not met one person at Loyola who is not on a scholarship of some kind.

Nightlife: Two bars a located very close to Loyola. About a 5 minute walk. Freshman tend to go out a lot, but it gets old fast. Greek life does have parties, but they're usually pretty lame unless it is a party your organization is holding just for your organization itself.

Diversity: Loyola is very diverse in ethnicity. Politically, most students seem to be very liberal and progressive.

Loyola Univeristy New Orleans is a unique school because it is acccepting of all kinds of people from different backgrounds, beliefs, and much more. The professors care about the students they teach, and while they will not hold your hand, they will help anyone who seeks assistance. Show yourself off by getting involved. If there is one thing you should do, it's networking, and the only way to network is to get to know different professional staff members and fellow classmates.

One of the most extraordinary aspects of Loyola is how it teaches students the Jesuit values through exciting religion and philosophy classes and by encouraging students to ask questions and be curious. Loyola teaches students how to create a balance between work, school, and personal time. This institution does not simply teach but helps students refine their current skills and find new ones and encourages everyone, professors included, to try something different. There is something for everyone, and that is what makes Loyola stand out from most universities because it has so much to offer.
