5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Loyola was one of my top choices, and I'm so glad that I decided to go here. I've made some lifelong friends, and I've loved every minute that I've spent on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had primarily great experiences with my professors and courses. There have been two or three that were a little out there, but they were more than willing to meet with me during their office hours and explain how their grading processes went or even just to help me with my homework or studying for their class.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Loyola has a really great reputation, and the alumni networking that's available is really valuable.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm an Accounting major, and so far, I haven't experienced too much difficulty in my classes as I'm a freshman. However, Loyola requires a lot of classes to complete the core, which means that you can be taking general courses into your senior year.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Loyola offers great academics. Our business school is fantastic, as are our science and speech pathology programs.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Loyola is absolutely beautiful. There are so many green spaces and lawns to hang out on a nice day, and the buildings are all well kept and updated. The dorms are huge and some of the best in the country, and Loyola's athletic facilities are really great.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Baltimore is absolutely amazing. If you want to do something, odds are Baltimore has it. There's so many museums, restaurants, and touristy places to go to. Baltimore is home to many professional sports teams and Loyola often offers discounted prices on tickets to games.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The ratio of boys to girls is way off, and there are a lot more girls than there are guys which is kind of unfortunate. The majority of guys here are pretty good looking and very preppy. Vineyard vines is basically the uniform of the majority of Loyola students.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There's not really any crime on campus, just an occasional drunk kid being dumb. It's not really smart to walk around the area surrounding campus at night, as it can be a little dangerous and there are the occasional muggings. Loyola Police definitely have a presence on campus, but it's not overwhelming and they're never threatening. Loyola has the Blue Light System, which is seen at basically every campus in the country nowadays, but I always feel very safe on campus. The school isn't physically closed off from the surrounding area, but outside people never really venture onto campus except for the one time that a Domino's delivery guy made a wrong turn and ending up driving around the quad.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The majority of the students go to the lacrosse games, but none of the other sports get the turnout that it does. Our athletic facilities are great, Michael Phelps even comes to train in our pool sometimes. The FAC is really nice and updated, although it can be a little difficult to find the workout machine that you're looking for during peak gym hours.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's so many options for off-campus dining. You're right in the middle of Baltimore, so you can either take a cab or Uber or the Collegetown Shuttle and Charm City Circulator down to the Inner Harbor and around the city.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Strictness really depends on your RA. Some will turn a blind eye if they catch you drinking while others will write you up if they find a beer can in your room. Visitation in dorms is really easy, especially if it's another Loyola student.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Loyola is 100% a bar school. Your fake ID is your lifeline here, and students usually go out 2-3 nights a week at the bars on York Road, the Towson bars, or bars downtown. If bars aren't your thing, there's not really much to do unless you go to the Hopkins or Towson frats, which are kind of sketchy. Some teams, like lacrosse and rugby, have house parties from time to time, but they fill up quickly and run out of alcohol just as fast. Loyola has a very work hard play hard mentality, and if you don't drink, chances are you'll be sitting in your dorm room every weekend.

Scholarships: I got next to nothing for financial aid, which was expected since I come from a predominantly white middle-class area and both of my parents attended college. However, Loyola did give me a great scholarship package which really helped alleviate the huge financial burden of the school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food at Loyola is kind of a hit or miss. Boulder stinks, but Iggy's is definitely worth the ten minute walk if you live on the other side of campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Loyola has the best housing out of any of the schools I visited. The dorms are spacious, and you get the opportunity to live in huge, fully furnished apartments, something that's not offered at many schools.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I would imagine there are things to do once you turn 21, but I have not heard of much happening on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I know people at this school who do not work as hard as me, and have scholarships or financial aid. I have consistently maintained good grades, and deserve to not be paying full tuition. Before coming to Loyola I tried to get some sort of financial aid but they denied my requests.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Compared to other schools, the food is not terrible. Sometimes the meat isn't cooked properly. The pizza is often greasy. Starbucks, Cold Spring Sushi, and the smoothie place are the best options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing options are fair; as a freshman you may live in a double or suite-style living. The apartments are spacious; however, they are not thoroughly cleaned. The proximity to classes is fair as well.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of freedom with off campus housing.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Cheesecake factory is the place to go.

Administration: Campus isn't too strict, just be careful.

Party Scene: Not bad could be better.

Scholarships: Could be better but they try their best in order to allocate there resources.

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.
