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.

4 College Freshman

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

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We only have one good sport and that is Lacrosse. The other teams do not really compete well in the league. However, I do like to attend as many games as possible for sports like Basketball, Soccer, and Lacrosse. The school spirit is good as long as we are winning which isn't often.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Lacrosse is huge at Loyola. Student have ton of school spirit during the games at Ridley.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit is far from what you would expect from a D1 school. There is one group that cars and thats the Super Fans. Other than that no one really care which is sad, especially when your school is in the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Top 4. The FAC is super nice though.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Loyola athletics has many talented teams and players, and Loyola's name in sports is definitely on the rise. The men's basketball team recently made the NCAA tournament, and the men's lacrosse team brought home the NCAA championship. Basketball, soccer, and lacrosse are the most popular sports at Loyola, and we have some of the best athletes in the country. Our athletic program is very strong, and students are encouraged to attend games and support the athletes. 

There is no shortage of school spirit here. At every game, the bleachers are always packed with student superfans, and we have been called the best college fan section in the country. There is a sea of green at every sporting event, and it is so fun to join the Loyola community in supporting our student athletes at their games. Attending games is easy as well, because every student can get tickets with their student ID. Many students join in athletics through intramural teams. There are teams for anything from soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey to inner tube water polo, squash, and flag football. With the amazing FAC, there's no shortage of student recreation opportunities.
