I am a music industry major at loyola and it was a great decision. However, if you're a science kid, it may not be your best bet. But if you are super artsy it's definitely the place for you. It's a great campus environment of creativity and support for those endeavors. I love the honors program because it is a small, tight knit community with cool class choices (cults and religions filled my religion req) and helpful advantages (special study spaces, people bring in free food to share, can check out books for a longer time, good community service opportunities). The music industry program is amazing and different from any other one I have experienced because it gives you a broad, universal view of the music industry and then you can apply it to your own goals by specializing by joining on campus companies and clubs to further your experience in that area, such as the on campus live sound company and recording company.

I wish there were options for smaller housing, as I'm an introvert who likes quiet space, and the large residence halls do get loud. The dorms are pretty average - they do their job, and that's about it. Free laundry!

Loyola is a good school that has an amazing Music Industry program. The classes that are required are all very interesting and are obviously very helpful and important. Besides the music program, I do not have many positive things to say. The school is very small and you see the same faces and have the things everyday, which to some might be really nice, but to me it didn't work. Also the food is not every good, I preferred Tulane's food since we can go to their campus. Also the school is not very spirited. For it being in New Orleans, you'd think that there at least be more variety to do, or some really fun cool clubs, but there isn't much to choose from. I will say that the people are really nice and the professors are great. They are very helpful and will do whatever the can to help you in whatever you need.
