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

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.

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.
