Overall Experience: This school is a great school, but it is also small. If you don't like going out into the city for fun, probably not a great place.

Party Scene: People mainly go to the bars

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Party scene is huge. It's a giant bar school.

3 College Senior

Academics: Some of the teachers are amazing, others are absolutely awful. Registration process is terrible and incredibly stressful. Workload is completely dependent upon your major.

3 College Senior

Diversity: It could have much more diversity.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, my classroom experience has been absolutely enriching and excellent. I love the fact that I can walk up to a professor around campus and just talk about different topics. This approachability to my professors has allowed me to grow and to develop my ideas.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I believe that one of Loyola's strengths is the large number of resources for students in all the fields. I'm certain that if I use my resources I will accomplish anything I set my mind to.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Concerning sexual assaults, I feel like Loyola should put in more resources for victims. It's important for victims to feel supported through their healing process.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Loyola University Maryland's dorms are known for being the best! And after living in them for two years, I can tell you they really are amazing and spacious. It really makes living away from home a lot easier.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Loyola is known for their excellent athletics programs. I'm not a sporty person, but it's hard not to feel pride when the hounds win any event. GO HOUNDS!

Overall Experience: Loyola is definitely an excellent place to discover yourself. It provides students with a friendly environment and the necessary support for them to accomplish any goal they set for themselves.

Overall Experience: My schooling has been great... I am not looking for a college or to further my class experience.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have actually never had a bad professor at my school. Some professors can be super passionate about what they like so they talk all of the time and others like to joke around with students - it all depends on who you take. I always listen to the students who have taken upcoming professors in the past because that is definitely a deciding factor. A lot of the Communications professors have been in the Comm field for awhile so I trust what they say. I don't really like the 'core' classes that we need to take because I could have finished my degree in about half of the time I did without those classes. Class size at Loyola is usually around 25 which gives you enough space to know the teacher if you want to or just be a name on a piece of paper if that's what you prefer as well, just know that some professors won't keep it that way.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Career Center is definitely helpful on campus. They helped me correct my resume and I have received two internships since then. I am nervous about my future though because most of the companies at our Career Fairs are those in the accounting or sales fields which are not mine. Alumni network is alright I would say.. I would like to see it grow to have a base in New York City (I want to be in charge of that). I want to grow our network and host events for incoming students.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Whenever there is an incident on campus, it is reported and 9/10 times we get an email stating what has happened. Campus crime is a rarity but there is public access so sometimes outsiders come in. Personal safety is easy for me; I always feel safe on campus especially with our blue light system. If I were to ever feel unsafe walking home, I would call Campus Escort or Campus Police for a ride. I do feel safe on campus but wish we had more staff around at night hours on patrol.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms have always been a good thing for me. Freshman year I was put into a forced quad meaning I shared one room with three roommates and thankfully they turned into 3 of my best friends. The university over-accepted that year and so students over-admitted therefore I understand why we were put in that situation. I have lived in an on campus apartment since then and I love having a kitchen and a bathroom for me and my other roommates. The best options for freshmen are the freshmen dorms (Flannery, Hammerman and Butler). Sophomores for sure should live in Newman or Campion (close in proximity and Newman has Iggy's). Juniors tend to enjoy Newman as well but the other living areas like Seton and Southwell are good for Juniors as well because they are somewhat separate. Senior housing will always be a good thing - I would never want to live off of campus while in college.

4 College Senior

Athletics: School spirit and the Dog Pound are huge parts of Loyola! The FAC (our main athletic facility for NARPs) is the absolute best. It's difficult at times to get to Ridley, where the lacrosse and soccer teams play, but definitely worth it. Lacrosse is definitely the biggest sport on our campus so you never want to miss a game. Students are always involved from the facilities staff, to taking photos on the field to the student-run cheering section. The sometimes free Chick-Fil-A is always an added plus.

Overall Experience: Loyola's different because we're a campus smack in the middle of Baltimore. We have the campus and city feel all in one. Loyola is also obsessed with athletics so the basketball and especially lacrosse games are fun. I would choose it again 100% because I have grown so much while here - from leading retreats, leading our student body and leading myself through this path; there is always somewhere on this campus that every student fits.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus. Like every college loyola has the problem of students drinking but unlike many colleges Loyola deals with this problem in an incredible manner. There are endless amounts of activities other than drinking and partying and in the case of drinking the school has a great way of dealing with discipline and above all the health and wellness of the students

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Loyola's dorms are some of the best I saw in my entire college search. I believe they are closer to hotel rooms than the conventional dorm. They are incredibly roomy and provide many perks. They are exceptional in every aspect.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity athletics are great. Loyola competes at the NCAA Division I level, so it is the best of collegiate athletics.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Loyola is a home away from home for me. It has offered me so many opportunities to try new things and succeed like never before. I love it and am so glad I chose Loyola.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Other than three classes, I have really enjoyed my professors. They have been interesting and helpful. The classes are interesting and I definitely learn a lot. My favorite class was Microbes: the Good, the Bad, the Ugly. The professor was great and I fell in live with microbiology after that class.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have not gotten into applying for jobs and internships but from what I have heard and seen, people have been fine getting jobs. The Loyola degree seems to hold a lot of value.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is very good at Loyola. I stayed in Butler Hall which is an older building (my 50+ professor was the first class to have it) but it did the trick. I could control the A/C and heat which was not the case in the newer building, Flannery O'Conner. "Flan" was basically the quality of a hotel. It was very nice but as stated before you can't control the temperature so a fan was necessary.

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.
