5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very safe... I've never felt unsafe, nor have I heard of anything too serious around campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are friendly and easy-to-access; in just about one year (and 10 classes), I've had 9 excellent teachers, with one poor teacher. The courses are taught to the student - not just to the elite.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being at a small school, the networks and resources are pretty small, but the education seems quality.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are old, small and run-down, but the people here are great.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life around campus is non-existent, so it doesn't really affect the atmosphere around campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The men's soccer team is amongst the best NCAA Division 3 programs in the country, while other sports - like basketball, football and volleyball - are improving.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Loras is a quaint school in the middle of Dubuque. Its class sizes are small, and thus stronger student-teacher relationships are hatched, however the school is very small and the school is very old.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the people around me. I just feel that the school pressures you into doing activities that you aren't interested in. Yes I understand that trying new things is a good idea but when you try to make people feel bad for not joining it's pointless.Teachers I've had were all Great besides my college writing. She was very rude and never showed any interest in the students. i love my friends at Loras but some of the classes I am required to take are ridiculous and aren't my cup of tea. They will in no way help me with my future.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I do feel safe on campus, but sometimes the surrounding areas aren't the best and I would never walk around by myself.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed all of my classes in college. The small size is very convenient and I feel like I create a relationship with my professor just by being in class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have companies table outside to the cafeteria to get recruits. Alumni play a huge role in connecting students to jobs after graduation.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is decent on campus. I have enjoyed every place I have lived so far. The dorms are in decent shape and do a good job of bringing together community.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't a huge part on campus, but a decent amount of people are either in the fraternity or the sorority. It definitely isn't like the greek life at a state school.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics play a big part on campus and many people support the different sports. As we say here, "Duhawks supporting Duhawks."

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.
