5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love school here because of the community and relationships formed.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The student involvement with varsity sports is very high. Almost 50% of the school are student athletes or are part of an athletic team as a student-coach, manager, etc. For a lot of games we get a wide base of students to com and support their friends on the team.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience has been remarkable! The teachers are very accommodating with me and my permanent post concussion symptoms. I have had a great experience with the community here as well and everything they have to offer on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Dubuque is not the safest town by any means, but I feel comfortable walking on campus at any time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many options for classes to take, sometimes it is difficult to get in the class you want, but if it is required, it is assured you will get into the classes you need. The classes are all very good and informative. As expected, some are less interesting than others, but the professors usually go above and beyond and out of their way to make class engaging to the students. The professors really care about their students are easily accessible be it by office hours or by email. They try to learn everyone's names, and even after completing the course, if they see you around campus, they make an effort to say hello. The student to faculty ratio is 12 to 1 here on campus, which makes class sizes fairly small. Personally, I enjoy the small class sizes because it allows the professors the opportunity to individualize their teaching and really get to know the students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In a survey put out by the school in 2014, 100% of the class responded, and something like 95% or more of them had jobs within a year related to their degree or were enrolled in graduate school. The Center for Experiential Learning does an excellent job of helping students get internships, and if those internships are unpaid, getting scholarships so the students receive some compensation other than just credit or experience.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Beckman, which is traditionally the first year residence hall of choice. We leave our doors open a lot so that we can socialize with other people on our floor. I have a roommate and I have heard very few complaints about the random assigning of roommates (which we did). Having a community bathroom is not the worst, although the showers are a little small. I can't complain though, because the bathrooms get cleaned for us, and I don't mind that at all. Housing is a bit expensive, but I think that's been on the rise for awhile now.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We only have one sorority and one fraternity on campus. Greek life isn't very big here.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not a part of intermurals or sports in general. However, I do think that the facilities are very up to date and easily accessible to those that want to use them. Many students support our teams, both varsity and intermurals.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose Loras if I had the opportunity to do it all over again. Everyone on campus is so welcoming and makes Loras feel like a second home. I actually miss school when I'm gone on breaks. We have an awesome Launch into Loras Program that happens a few days before school starts which really helps the new students get involved and meeting new people right away.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: They do a pretty good job. We're constantly being reminded of the rules and guidelines of campus, and lots of tips for staying safe.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really love being at Loras. I have enjoyed every minute here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a 97% rate of either getting into grad school or getting a job in your field. That leaves me feeling pretty comfortable.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It really depends on where you end up. Freshman year in Beckman was a lot of fun, especially as a guy. everything after that is pretty satifactory.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Pretty sad. The Fraternity here is pretty minuscule, and the sorority does alrght, but they aren't super active on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The reason I say this, even though our football team is pretty terrible, and almost every team is mediocre, but our soccer team is one the best in the entire country. Its always great watching them play.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The greatest thing I think about Loras is the community that we find ourselves in. It is nearly impossible to go a day and not talk to someone on campus. The classroom environment is just as welcoming and diverse as the extracurricular events. It truly has been a great experience.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our security staff are some of the best people you'll ever meet, but I wouldn't count on them in an active situation.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm so glad to be at Loras. It is a great school with great people everywhere. The thing that sticks out is how much people care about each other. It's like it's a big family.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a very strong alumni network, especially in Iowa and in Chicago.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I haven't been on campus for very long, but what I have seen has been good.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not an athlete, but our soccer programs are both great. The workout facilities are fantastic, and the school has an indoor track and an indoor pool.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Loras is a great school. I'm glad that I'm here because everyone there is friendly and wants you to succeed, from admissions to the professors to Campus Dining, even. Great environment.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is very great. You never hear about any campus crimes. I always feel comfortable if I have to walk across campus, even if it is later in the night. There are security throughout campus and that also brings a good amount of safety.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The way that Loras has their classes is amazing. What is nice is that the class sizes are small, so the professor knows you by name and they know how to help you learn and what your struggles can be. The quality of courses and classes are so nice because they are always high quality.
