4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is very pricy, but it is very close to everything.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Its super easy to find any place that tailers to you taste. You're in Chicago!

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are lenient about a veriety of things but strick on others.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My experience went by smoothly. They were very helpful.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most of the partys happen in frat houses a few streets down or in bars.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Its pretty great food. There arent that many healthy options on campus, but you can find those walking 2 minutes from campus.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a commuter student so I wouldnt know much about housing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I dont know much about off-campus housing because I am too young to get that experience yet.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Living in Chicago, we have a variety of options. It is great being able to get any kind of food I want within minutes! It is perfect!

3 College Freshman

Administration: It is not bad, they are strict about things that should be regulated. The only complaint I have is the overnight visitor regulations for freshman. They are a hassle and it makes me not want to have my friends come visit. I could understand being strict first semester, but second semester should be a bit easier to have friends over.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The merit scholarships are great! But the other options for scholarships were very specific and I could not apply for any of them. I wish they hada few more general scholarships available, or at least some for the School of Communication!

College Freshman

Party Scene: I dont really go out to parties, I tend to hang out with friends and watch movies and make food. And most importantly, explore the beautiful city i live in!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's overall great. Some of the dining halls food can get repetitive and boring. But the food courts and cafes are great! I love visiting all of our cafes on campus, and the employees are all so nice!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. The dorm experience is great! It is a bit too expensive, but I expected nothing less from going to a school in Chicago. Honestly, the dorms available are all great and I have nothing bad to say about them! Freshman dorms are typical in the way that they are designed. But when you get to be a sophomore and upperclassman, all of the dorms are apartment style which is really great!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It seems there are a lot of apartments nearby for students. They all have up signs and they are very close to CTA and the school.

Administration: I feel like all the rules they take serious need to be that way. It makes for a safer campus and helps protect the students.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places within walking distance but there are also unlimited amounts of online delivery restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration oversight on campus is not very visible to average students.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process is extremely easy and they will work with almost everyone to give financial aid however they never give the amount that you need.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Loyola's students are quick to point out the school's faults. There is little sugar-coating in their appraisal of the school as a financial mess that is so rife with incompetence that it is hard to accomplish even the simplest administrative tasks without putting up a fight. That said, most Loyolans love their school. They see its faults as nothing more than additional challenges they must face on their way to graduation. The majority of students would prefer to look past all the talk of budget cuts and program eliminations they hear during the course of their academic careers and focus on the positives. Loyola offers a quality education for those who are willing to work at it.

Are the administrative problems at Loyola disruptive to a student's studies? Definitely. Should this scare you away from Chicago's Jesuit institution? No. Loyola is starting to come slowly out of its period of financial distress. Fewer cutbacks are expected as incoming class sizes grow in size. Outside of the classroom, the University is actually growing and improving by the day. Most of the buildings around campus are slowly being renovated; the University has a feeling of newness to it, and this is a good thing for freshmen just out of high school. Not only do you get a new beginning, but you get new facilities to make that start in. Many students who have graduated recently look at the campus improvements with jealousy, wishing they had been given the opportunity to make use of them. Students may be split on their feelings about Loyola, but it appears that the University is in the process of rebuilding itself anew. It is up to young scholars to follow suit.
