5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I consider my self so lucky to be accepted to an institution as wonderful as Loyola. I have experienced challenging classes that pushed me academically to achieve greatness. I attended classes with teachers who are passionate about their work and encourage their students to find a similar passion in their own lives. I have found that Loyola University Maryland is a unique school, because the school dearly cares for the wellness of its students. The past May, I was preparing for my finals when the Baltimore Riots broke out. It was a tough time for everyone. The city of Baltimore was on lock down, and curfew was implemented. It was during my freshman year, at a time I could not have felt more vulnerable and scared. The university is located in the suburbs of Baltimore, close enough to the riots to be alarmed. Loyola's reaction to the riots was inspirational. They launched a campaign across campus called "One Baltimore" and encouraged students to recall why Baltimore is a special city and that the riots do not define all those who make up the city. Additionally there were student and faculty organized peaceful protests to the riots, including a silent march through the city where participants held banners that said "One Baltimore" and "We Support Peace". The Baltimore riots will go down in history and I lived, survived, and learned from them due to the support of my school.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school has been a very positive one. I have only become more interested in my major and my classes, and I have come out of my shell enough to make friends and join clubs. Living on campus has also been a very good experience. I have learned to be independent and to manage my time. Loyola University Maryland is pretty small geographically and by number of students. The class sizes are small which make it easier to learn and to socialize. The teachers at Loyola are helpful and understanding. I haven't heard yet of a teacher who does not know each of their students by name. The dorms are also beautiful and spacious, and I could not see myself living anywhere else.

Campus Housing: there is alot of space in rooms.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing good around that is affordable

Administration: No room to do anything so everyone goes out to have fun

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of options but not much for vegans.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are excellent and have plenty of space.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is plenty of options to choose from when finding off-campus housing.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are no parties on campus so many students go to bars or other colleges.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is plenty of diverse foods on york road to sample.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The administration are good at enforcing the rules.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did receive financial aid but not as much as I had hoped for.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Most students I know who live off campus enjoy the freedom that comes with it but not the price that needs to be paid for that freedom.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't much to choose from. Mostly Chinese restaurants with rude delivery drivers, who hold food hostage unless they are tipped. other options include chain restaurants such as Popeyes and McDonalds. For anything from that Towson is the way to go, and no where delivers from Towson so you have to find your way there to pick up

1 College Senior

Party Scene: There is no party scene, just bars. If you want to party usually you need to make friends with Towson students of Hopkins students or follow the party pages on Instagram. Once you are 21 plus you can start to venture out to downtown Baltimore.

3 College Senior

Administration: Campus police is almost never helpful and take absolutely forever to respond and that is even with me being an RA and calling for policy violation assistance. The administration as a whole seems to only regard individuals on the Student Government Association as important in terms of listening to the voice of the student population. With that being said, it seems as though students of color are not regarded as highly as other students. Things get done, but eventually it seems.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: I received great aid going into my freshmen year, and although I lost work-study my second year I became an RA and was scared my aid would be reduced but it was not which was very appreciated and many individuals at other schools could not speak the same for their schools

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Since the new switch over of the meal plan the food choices and dinning options on campus has depleted since my freshman year.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Housing on campus at times seems like living in an hotel for a whole school year. Our environmental service personnel are great with keeping the dorms clean as well as students living up to cleanliness in respect to how beautiful they found the living spaces upon arrival

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

For freshmen everywhere, the first few weeks, maybe even semesters, of college life can be a daunting experience. Sharing a room with a total stranger, making a whole new circle of friends, and learning how to cope with professors and lecture classes can be enough to make anyone rethink the decision to go away to school. Fortunately for students at Loyola, these anxieties are quickly replaced by school pride and affection for the intelligent professors, gorgeous dormitories, and exciting nightlife. The opportunities at Loyola are endless. You can take part in student government groups and get hands-on experiences. If you're more of a sports star, there are intramural and club sports to join. And as Loyola students love to do, there's always a bar nearby for taking a break from the books.

Many students have found that, throughout their experiences at Loyola, it has truly become their second home right away. There are always plenty of events happening on campus, especially at the beginning of the year, and these events, such as the freshman party on the Quad and casino night, are a great way to make lifelong friends. There is truly something for everyone at Loyola, and the community and closeness of the students here make it easy for all students to find a place here.
