3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm itself is lovely. My roommates and I have our own bathroom and lots of room on the floor and for all of our stuff. However, housing here is TERRIBLY expensive and my roommates and I are already looking into apartments for next year.

Greek Life: There are only a few fraternities and sororities on campus and neither appear to play a big role in the outcome of the social atmosphere. Since we are located in Chicago, there are no true "houses". Simply brownstones around the corner of campus. And, as I've mentioned before, there isn't much partying going on here so Greek life isn't that big of a deal.

Athletics: The school spirit here in terms of athletics is seriously lacking. At LUC, people are more motivated by the spirit of their heart rather than the score from a football team. I think this is a cool feature because there are a million schools you can go to and find that "school spirit". I think LUC as an institution just needs to accept that it will never play with the big boys.

Overall Experience: The best part about my school is the location. Living in Chicago has been such an amazing experience and I couldn't ask for a better city to explore or to learn from. It always has so much to offer. The college itself has been a good experience thus far. My professors seem very intelligent, motivated, and kind, yet the night life here is almost non-existent. It could be simply I don't know where to go yet, but for the past four weekends, the campus on a Friday night has been near silent. That being said, people here don't necessarily need alcohol to occupy them like they would at other schools because there is such an amazing city in our backyards! As time goes on, I feel like I will begin to feel at home more and find that stuff to do on a Friday night. But for now, I'm simply enjoying what I have at hand and thinking positive.

Overall Experience: I like my professors and even have a very liberal one. This is new to me and fell quite good about it. I feel the professors are the top in their field and very willing to share the knowledge.

Health & Safety: Now after this question on this survey, I will think about safety more. I feel fortunate that I feel normally safe. I do see campus police polling the area quite often and perhaps the overall attitude of the student is that we feel safe.

Campus Housing: As a freshman and sophomore at Loyola University, you really do not have much choice of living on campus, you have to. I turned in a choice for where my ideal housing would be but it was received past the deadline. Why? I am unsure as I applied a month in advance. However, I am satisfied with living in this dorm with a couple roommates. Move in was easy and they have this down to a science for the start of the school year. Cost? It is included in the $63000.00 tutition.

Greek Life: I really do not participate in the Greek life activities. However, it is pretty big on the campus as far I can tell. Greek students are perceived the same as non-Greeks and I have never really looked at it before this question on this survey for college funding. I suppose I could say the Greek's and the non-Greeks all pay the same abundant tuition.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Student involvement highly recommended and participated in. The year is so new to rate team performance, however, fan support is high. School spirit is top rated and a lot of fun. Everyone enjoys the pep.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: ************************LOYOLA**********************************

My overall experience so far is that it is completely new to all of us freshman there. Overall, I find the students to be friendly, outgoing and we all have the same objective. To graduate and live as overly productive members of society. It's a nice place to live and learn.

Overall Experience: My first impressions of the school are good so far.

Campus Housing: I'm a transfer, and like other transfers, I live in the Sovereign which is an off-campus apt. building. It is very isolated.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: No greek housing, I don't really mind because i am not a fan of greek life. i am not interested in it

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I haven't been to any games yet as most sports haven't started their season.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have only been in school for about 2 and a half weeks now, but I love it. This is a Jesuit school, and even though I am not religious, I feel as though my professors have a goal in mind when teaching me. Through my education here, I am learning to be a more well-rounded individual and more involved with the world around me.

Overall Experience: From what I've read the graduate programs in psychology are very impressive. Numerous student reviews of the program have also concurred with the high regard and reputation that this university maintains.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are good for the student experience in limited quantities.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: This school doesn't have a ton of parties, but it is proximally located to other schools with more parties.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Every professor that I have ever had is extremely knowledgable and passionate about their area of expertise.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of religious diversity, as well as political diversity, but economic and racial diversity is almost nonexistent.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs are not used by everyone, but I know that in greek life it is present.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: It seems as though we have a lot of things for health and safety. I feel safe around campus. But going to the wellness center if you aren't feeling well will not help you at all. I have only been there twice, so I'm hoping that this is not the experience everybody has, but the workers do not seem to have a desire or ability to help you.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: My housing so far has been fairly good. They have not been spectacular rooms, but I also do not have anything to complain about. It has been a good experience.

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.
