I like the campus itself. It's truly beautiful; it faces the lake and it is just a god-sent to wake up to every morning. The cool thing about Loyola is that there's always something to do. Whether it's events in your residence hall, events on campus, or just studying for your major, I feel like it is pretty hard to be bored on this campus. I'm giving it three stars because I personally find it to be challenging here, but only because my major (which is Nursing!) is pretty difficult! It is definitely more oriented around academics and less around the party scene. If you want to go to a place where you will actually get stuff done and not just drink your problems away at the bar, then here's the place. Other than that, the campus gives off a fun vibe, but people here know how to buckle down and do well.

Loyola Chicago is perfect for someone looking for a college experience in a world class city. The student body is really down to earth and academically focused. That being said, there are plenty of opportunities to party and explore Chicago. I absolutely love Loyola. I truly found my home here and have made life long friends. The school of business is challenging but the professors are engaging and Schreiber Center is beautiful. Loyola is expensive, but I find it to be worth every penny. Loyola also has a great reputation in Chicago. Overall, the school provides a traditional college experience in a big city!

Mertz Hall is where most of the freshmen live. It's a good place to meet new people and make some friends during your first year of college. There's a kitchen on the main floor next to the laundry room and the lounge area- it's kept in pretty decent shape but not many people use anything other than the microwave. The floor bathrooms can get kinda gross though so make sure you bring shower shoes! Fordham Hall is one of the best dorms. It's like an apartment- a kitchen (no microwave), a bathroom, a small walk-in closet, and nice big windows. But of course, all of the dorms are very expensive. I would strongly recommend living off campus asap because it saves a ton of money.
