The most important thing I could share about this school is that it is a real investment in education. The small class sizes, Jesuit values, and attentive staff will give you an education that other colleges lack. The environment at Loyola is excellent and if you are looking for a college with values than look no further than Loyola. The majority of students at Loyola seem to be natural leaders yet pressure of competitiveness found at other top ranking schools isn't there. Students are not put against each other or broken by being over worked, instead we are encouraged to enjoy learning, enjoy our social lives and ask our selves meaningfull questions that will allow us to grow as individuals. The only thing I would change is more school spirit, but with that being said you'll find that the Greyhounds are loyal to their athletics and dominate on most fields, courts, tracks and pools. Go Greyhounds!

I absolutely love Loyola University Maryland! It is the perfect size for me! All my professors know me very well and are thrilled to help their students. Being a liberal arts education allows students to take courses in many different fields and the jesuit value of Cura Personalis is really important here, it means care of the whole person. They are very accepting and are much more interested in making you grow in your own personal truths than forcing their views down your throat. The school puts a lot of money into it's late night program, every weekend there are a bunch of fun events and midnight breakfast which is free. I'd say compared to other small schools we have a lot more for students to do on the weekend. Being in Baltimore also has a lot of great perks. Loyola is located in a beautiful and safe neighborhood. Going downtown is pretty easy and I have grown to LOVE Baltimore! There is a lot to see, do, explore, and each neighborhood is very different from one another, architecturally and atmospherically. Plus, DC is easily accessible by the Marc train which is only $8 from Penn Station and it is a pretty quick train. Towson is just a couple minutes up the road and has a lot of appealing shops (the mall is huge), restaurants, entertainment. I really like how involved Loyola students are with Social Justice. There are a lot of very passionate students that organize events throughout the year regarding these topics. Students here tend to have a very work hard, play hard mentality. Professors tend to not give a ton of work but the work they do give is very thought provoking, time consuming, and challenging. Students study very hard but also know how to have a great time once they are done.

Overall, I could not be happier with my choice to attend Loyola.

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.
