Health & Safety: Safety on campus is fine. There are always police patrolling and looking out for students. Unfortunately, there are quite a few assaults and robberies that happen nearby campus. It happens almost too often.

Overall Experience: Classes are small which allows you to gain a personal relationship with your professor. They have weekly office hours for you to drop by unannounced. All my music professors are experts and professionals in their fields and have a lot of valuable information and experience to share.

Overall Experience: I'm not too familiar with internships at this school because I haven't had one yet. However, I do know that out of my friends that have had one, it's a great experience. The school is very helpful and hots many internship job fairs.

Campus Housing: Beiver and Buddig are scary looking. They are not a pleasant place to live in. Carrolton is not too bad and Cabra is the best option. Housing is very expensive and you are required to live on campus your first 2 years. You are also required to have a meal plan while living on campus which is also very expensive.

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek life on campus. There are a few sororities and fraternities, but it's not a huge deal. If your'e in one, then your'e in one. You don't have to dedicate your whole life to it. We also do not have any Greek housing.

Athletics: The athletics at my school remind me of high school athletics. Our teams perform very well, but there aren't many people who attend games. Though we are a very small school, so there aren't many people here to begin with. Athletics are just not a huge part of this school. We mainly focus on our liberal arts.

Overall Experience: I love how open and friendly my peers and faculty are. This school is very diverse and has students from all over the world. I enjoy how small it is because I have had the opportunity to make many close friends and not just acquaintances. I also enjoy how your professors want to get to know you and are willing to go that extra mile to help you. However, this school is terrible when it comes to financial aid. Although they do give a decent initial offer, they are most likely to take any and all aid away after a few semesters.

Diversity: Loyola despite being a Jesuit instution doesn't possess a very religous student population. While some students do come to Loyola becasue it is a religous school, most just want to attend because it is a good school. The student population is diverse when it comes to political belifes and sexual orientation, but it falls short on ethnic/racial diversity and ecnomic backgorund. Loyola students tend to be middle class and while diversity is present, Loyola is predominetly white.

Academics: My workload during finals was ridiculous, but typically it was pretty moderate. Certian professors assign more work than others, but as long as you do your assigned work and study you should do wonderfully.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: You have be smart. Loyola is in New Orleans and on top of that in one of the richest areas of New Orleans which makes it a target. Most crime that affects Loyola students occurs off campus and later in the night. The victims are also typically alone and women. We're told to travle in groups for a reason. Tulane recieves a good bit of on campus crime, but their dorms are not as secure as ours. Never go somewhere by yourself at night, especially if you're a woman. It's just too risky. Pepper spray is owned by literally every female on campus. Being smart and responsible at Loyola is not advised it's required.

Overall Experience: I love Loyola. The classes and professors are great and they've both encouraged me to explore topics I woudn't have previously considered finding intrest in. The classes are small. My largest class had about 75 people in it, but that's because it was an intro class and a class size that big is extremely rare. Classes tyrpically have about 18-30 people in them. The smalleness is great becasue it really allows for you to get to know the other students. All my professors know me by name.

Overall Experience: The attitude of most Loyola students, particuarly those within my Mass Communication field, is to graduate and then get a job. The majority of Loyola students are extremely driven and the Mass Comm. department is well connected and works extremely hard to make sure it's students are employed rather that be by an internship or actual job.

Campus Housing: Do not come to Loyola if nice spacious clean dorms are important to you. If you're not too uptight then you'll be fine, but Biever, the Freshman dorm, will take some getting used too. The bathrooms are communal and the cleaning ladies don't really clean so it's up to you and your floor mates to keep the bathroom area clean. Socially, Biever has been the best thing ever. The extremely close proximites makes everyone get to know everyone else. I've made good friends just while brushing my teeth. It's great.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Loyola is in New Orleans afterall so if the Greeks want to throw a party it doesn't really sway people. We're already in the midst of party central. If you're a Greek nobody looks at you differently. The general non-Greek attitude towards Greeks is, "Oh you're into that? Cool." We all coexist and as far as Greek housing goes, I have no idea.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The average loyola student just naturally has some sort of shcool spirit, but athletics aren't really a huge part of Loyola life. Games against our rival, Tulane, now those are well intended, but otherwise when it comes to normal games everyone has soemthing else they could be doing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I honestly love Loyola. Not only do you recieve the amazing experience of being in they city of New Orleans, but you also get to experince the great things that makes Loyola unique. Loyola is a world unto it's own. It has a wonderful diversity of thought, opinion, and lifestly and the students are generally friendly, open-minded, and willingly to help. The enthusiasm my professors display while teaching motivates me to be intrested in the topic at hand. It really is a great shcool. I really feel like I've found my home at Loyola.

Health & Safety: The only major crime that occurs on campus is theft. I feel that campus is safe and that everyone, including staff and students, are looking out for one another.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The variety of course offerings is amazing for such a small college. Professors are experts in their fields.

Campus Housing: Residence halls need to be renovated. Room selection process can be a great hassle.

View student contributors

Loyola Univeristy New Orleans is a unique school because it is acccepting of all kinds of people from different backgrounds, beliefs, and much more. The professors care about the students they teach, and while they will not hold your hand, they will help anyone who seeks assistance. Show yourself off by getting involved. If there is one thing you should do, it's networking, and the only way to network is to get to know different professional staff members and fellow classmates.

One of the most extraordinary aspects of Loyola is how it teaches students the Jesuit values through exciting religion and philosophy classes and by encouraging students to ask questions and be curious. Loyola teaches students how to create a balance between work, school, and personal time. This institution does not simply teach but helps students refine their current skills and find new ones and encourages everyone, professors included, to try something different. There is something for everyone, and that is what makes Loyola stand out from most universities because it has so much to offer.
