What do you think of when you hear purple and gold? That's right DUHAWKS! Our student body bleeds purple and gold. No one holds more school spirit than the students of Loras College. Although Loras may not be a division one athletic school, you can always catch our students supporting one another. Our schools motto is "Duhawks support Duhawks". This year, our men's soccer team was in the NCAA championship. Despite Kansas City may be six hours away, that did not stop our fans from attending the game. Loras' student unity truly sticks out, which makes it such a desirable institution.

Overall, the experience has been extraordinary. Everyday, I go to bed knowing that I made the right decision. Loras provides me with so much happiness. One thing that really sticks out about Loras is the environment. I attended several different visits. As I walked through the campus' at other schools I never felt welcome. The second I stepped onto Loras, I knew it was the school that I belonged at. I was welcomed immediately by some of the most friendly human beings I have ever met. If I was given the opportunity to choose another school, I wouldn't. There is no other school out there that offers quite the opportunities like Loras. Loras owns a place in my heart. I absolutely love being a Duhawk!

The quality is not the best of living, but it is easily to be overcome by the social atmosphere. For Freshman year I would highly recommend Beckman Hall. That hall is a great atmosphere for meeting other first years. The Visitation Complex is very laid back and has a great community! The RAs there are fantastic and usually always are. I highly recommend it, except that it is a decent walk to classes.
