3 College Freshman

Diversity: Good could be better but Loyola is doing a lot to try to make it more inclusive.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus is majority white. There are minorities and we seem to all know each other. I have never experience racism (I am African-american) BUT I know that it has happened. Majority of students are friendly and people are visibly socializing and talking to people of different ethnicity.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Loyola is working to make the campus a little more diverse each year. As of now, however, the campus is not very diverse. Most Loyola students come from a family comfortably seated in the upper-middle class or higher. A large percentage of the student body is Catholic, but all religions are accepted on campus, and students of other religions feel welcomed here. Although church attendance is encouraged and popular, it is by no means required, and many students either practice different religions or have no religious affiliation at all. 

As far as political views go, there is not a lot of political distinction at Loyola. Politics is not incredibly popular among the students, and all political views are accepted. All sexual orientations are accepted on campus, as well. Spectrum, a group on campus that welcomes those of different sexual orientations, provides a safety base and a place to feel supported for their differences. Overall, Loyola prides itself on its values and sense of community and acceptance to all students, no matter their family background, heritage, political views, religion, or sexual orientation. The students at this school live out these values and are very accepting of each other. Most anyone can easily fit in here.

Gay Pride
Loyola has Spectrum, which is a program to help educate students about homosexuality that simultaneously gives gay students an outlet to meet others of the same orientation. There is no blatant discrimination against gay students, though there seem to be few on campus.
Political Activity
The typical Loyola student is not very active in politics. If you want to voice your opinion and be surrounded by more enlightened students, you must enroll in politics-based courses-that way, you will meet students of similar interests. Most Loyola students prefer to stick in the Loyola bubble-going to bars and going to class. That's about it.
Economic Status
Loyola students are privileged-oftentimes over-privileged.
Most Common Religions
The majority of students are Catholic, as the school's religious affiliation is Roman Catholic. However, there are students practicing other religions as well, the largest of which is probably Protestant. About 3 percent of students claim to have no religious preference.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Loyola has a gay and lesbian support group, Spectrum, which offers information and counseling. All information is kept confidential. There is also the African Student Union, Asian Student Association, and the Hispanic Club, among others.
