The school is very small, welcoming, and warm. It feels like home and the classes are not huge which makes it easier to learn. Most professors are always available and very open to helping students succeed.

Loyola New Orleans is an experience like no other. The people here are incredibly diverse and open-minded and the school is willing to help you get wherever you want to go.

Loyola is amazing. It's full of people for all the country, and it's in one of the greatest cities in the world. As a non-music major, I'm not in love with how much of the school are music majors, which seems to be about 50%. It's easy to fill like you don't belong when surrounded by musicians.
