Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living in Campion my freshmen year!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not a part, have no opinion.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Have not been to many games but the games I have been to were fun!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved most of my professors. My UCWR and UCLR professors were extremely passionate about the subject and their students. The professors that I find to be the best are the ones that always require you to meet with them once in the semester. It means they really care about who you are and your education.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Loyola is always having career and job fairs that are accessible to students it is just getting the motivation to go.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Loyola does a lot to keep students aware of the environment they are in. Loyola is continually providing students with information about crimes that are occurring. Loyola also offers a lot of support to students who have experienced any traumatic situations.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I loved my sophomore housing experience in an apartment style dorm.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have houses which sucks.

3 College Junior

Athletics: People enjoy going to the basket ball and volleyball games but I personally have never gone to any of them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like most of my professor. Sometimes the nursing professors can get irritating especially if they are not teaching a science related course.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the people, too many core classes, pricey

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Major's very competitive and not enough reach out

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Risk of robbery sometimes in day, more at night

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Not great forced to buy meal plan, rooms small

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: No greek housing, but the MGC greek life is great

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: No football team and students only go if we win

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Price of the school isn't equivalent to quality

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party so I'll talk about transportation. Public transportation is public transportation so it's awful in general. But the difference with Loyola is that it's very easy to access so if you want to go home to the suburbs or just commute daily to and from the city it can be done without a headache or heart attack. Having a U-pass really helps. It just stinks that you have to load your own money during official school breaks.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The core courses are really interesting. I really liked that we have to learn about environmental science and even dip our toes into philosophy. The English courses, however, aren't that good. It just feels like a repeat of your AP English courses in high school, which they most likely are.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's a private school on a certain side of the city, so when it comes to "diversity" in the broadest sense of the word, it's not that diverse. Sure, there are visible differences but that doesn't eclipse the fact that the school is a private Jesuit institution on the lake front.

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.
