3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is pretty friendly in general. The ratio of guys to girls is extremely low however because the student population is made up of only about 30% boys.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are way more girls than guys. The girls range from the crazy party girl sloots to glued-to-their-books study-on-the-weekend type. The guys are generally laid back and easy to talk to most of the time.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

GQ is definitely not knocking down the doors to get to Loyola's guys, and you won't see the girls on the cover of Cosmopolitan. Still, the campus overall is a fairly attractive one. The problem is that for most of the year, Loyola students hide their most attractive features with scarves, gloves, and long underwear. You would think that any piece of uncovered flesh would immediately turn to ice and fall off, which could theoretically happen in Chicago's frigid winter. The trick is to get people out of their cold weather clothes. Then they're hot. The best part about students is that they all come from different social and economic backgrounds, making it very likely you'll find someone to curl up by the fire and drink hot cocoa with on a cold night.

Students are not at Loyola because they wanted to have fun while at college. The University does not have the academic prestige of Harvard, nor does it challenge the party reputation of places like Indiana University. Loyola is somewhere in between. Students find a way to blend academic prowess with having a good time. Most students do not go around looking to get laid, but people can let themselves go when the right party arises.

Social Scene
There's room for everyone, but finding a niche can be a daunting task. The general maxim applies: Anyone looking for friends will find them, it just takes some time. Some of the dorms are more social than others, though the social scene really is a combination of effort and interest.
Hookups or Relationships?
The first month or so of school will be your chance to get to know more people than you ever knew existed in the world. That said, there will be a lot of people out there looking for that special someone. Once the school year really gets rolling, however, many students begin to focus more and more on their studies, and relationships fall to the wayside. For girls, the numbers are certainly against you; all the guys may be taken by mid-November. Around finals time, everyone gets a little bit frustrated, so that may just be your lucky time of year.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Loyola is not a party school by any means, but that doesn't mean that students don't like to go out. Exhibit A to this hypothesis is Thursday night at Hamilton's Pub. The otherwise only reasonably busy establishment becomes packed wall-to-wall with students, particularly freshmen, sophomores, and all those upperclassmen who are not yet sick of pushing their way through this human meat market. Hamilton's can be a lot of fun on any night, and an unhealthy amount of people meet their significant others there. If the bar is just not your style, it is perfectly possible to meet people around campus. Some students just roll out of bed and go to class in their pajamas, but a large percentage of students dress to the nines. There are few better ways to get to know that hot girl in your biology lab than to invite her over for a pre-exam cram session. Also, most Loyola dorms are coed, so great guys and girls could be little more than a floor away from you.
Dress Code
NCAA Division I sports may not be popular at Loyola, but the student body is a fairly athletic one all the same. You see a lot of sporty looking people walking around, wearing baseball hats, soccer jerseys, and exercise pants. At the Water Tower Campus, students mostly dress business casual, with khakis, button-down shirts, blouses, and skirts being standard. At the Lake Shore Campus, people like to look nice while staying comfortable. Most kids are gigantic fans of blue jeans, polo shirts, and hooded sweatshirts. Around finals time, this all changes, and slippers and sweat pants come into fashion.
