Majors: A portfolio submission is required to be considered into the program. It seems if you have a portfolio that is going in the right direction of the major and you are serious about this major, you get in. Scholarships are awarded to outstanding portfolios.

Health & Safety: Everything is typically fine if you just make sure you stay cautious and use common knowledge. Police will respond pretty to thing s--whether it be stolen items or robbery on campus at 1am--Ive never experienced it firsthand, so I don't know if most calls lead to successful captures.

Local Atmosphere: New Orleans, I would say, is more of a city thing, but it is never far from the rural and small life--with smaller cities such as Houma and Thibodaux (which holds Nicholls) about an hours drive away. Tulane is our neighbor school, with LSU , UL/ULM and many other schools not too far away. Plenty of social Networks.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It can go good or bad, just depends on your situation.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It makes getting to class and work easier instead of going through the hassle of coming from off-campus and dealing with traffic.

Campus Strictness: Lenient enough to allow visitation in the dorms (of course, with student ID), and to let students have organized protests, but strict enough in academic policies and parking. Drug use, like marijuana and coke, is still a common thing, and I don't think rules against it are enforced enough. Because we are next to bars, underage drinking is inevitable, but the university police is cracking down now on underage drinking.

Diversity: Loyola University New Orleans treasures diversity, providing equal treatment for all. We all learn from the diversity of each other, whether we are international students, richer students, poorer students, liberal students, conservative students, or any particular religion. We accept one another and respect each other's political standing and beliefs.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got a scholarship when I first came here for being a transfer student, which was great.

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.
