4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: i mean were close to rogers park

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Everyone is amazing and not cliquey at all. Nothing like a state school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: No one is very interested in sports, but everyone works out on their own.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone truly cares if you do well and are enjoying your time at Loyola. There are many options and ways to get involved. It is challenging but manageable.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: The campus is safe when you stay within the quad and main classroom area, but it cannot be completely as it is in the middle of Chicago.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: They always have something going on, but I never find out about it in time to plan around for it.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: All of my professors are easy to get along with and seem to care about what they're doing with really small class sizes.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The dorming situation isn't awful, but the process to get the housing is the absolute worst and never fair.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Our school doesn't place a heavy significance on Greek life, but it's definitely there. They just do their own thing on campus.

4 College Student

Athletics: Our school gym is awesome and easy to go to, I'm not entirely sure about the status of equipment for actual athletes, though, because I am not involved.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The school is awesome and in a great area, there are just a lot of formalities with the core requirements that seem excessive at times.

Health & Safety: There are always campus safety cars patrolling the area and there are plenty of blue emergency lights around that are there for you to access if you feel that you are in danger.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like Loyola is a good name to have on your diploma. It carries weight with it and definitely gives you a boost and they themselves help you out to find a job according to some students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some professors are just unnecessarily hard for no reason. We also have to take classes that serve no purpose to our majors like Theology and Philosophy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is a college dorm, not a luxury hotel. It gets you through the year and provides a nice space to be.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not too big here. They are "there" and when people see them it is more of a, "Oh geez, here come sorority girls" etc.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We lack school spirit. I attended every single men's and women's basketball game because of another organization that I was in and students do not always show up. So it can be disappointing at times.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone here is so nice and welcoming. It is a great school besides the fact that it is very expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's not really worth the price you pay

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Alpha Delta Pi is my home!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't really know much about it

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the opportunities that Loyola gives me but it's very expensive school to go to.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I live just a block and a half off campus and I feel comfortable walking to and from my house to campus. I have never encountered a problem of safety on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors have been very interesting, I have learned a lot. They have been accessible to me and have worked with me if I needed to skip a class due to traveling for a volleyball game. The professors I have had so far have been flexible in working with me and my volleyball schedule.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I am a member of the mens volleyball team so I have first hand experience with the athletic facilities. I have visited many schools and the athletic department at LUC is far above any others in the country. Mens volleyball does not attract a lot of students, but we do have good crowds that attend our games.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
