I choose Loyola because I really liked the campus, and I appreciated the students’ friendliness. I felt completely welcomed from the students and staff. I felt like the faculty and professors were really invested in growing you a as student. Also, Loyola has an excellent Communications and Music program, and those are the two fields I wanted to study.
I would tell a prospective student to do everything asked of them, and to make connections with their admissions counselor and financial aid advisors. I would also suggest the student research their chosen major.
My first visit was amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the tour guide, which I found out later, was a Loyola Ambassador. That experience inspired me to want to get involve with this program once I came to the school. I came for a regular visit the first time I toured the school.
I would say the best thing about Loyola is the environment and the small population. Everyone is friendly, and due to the school’s fairly small population, you feel like you are a part of a community. Everyone is familiar with each other, and you get to interact with your fellow students.
My favorite place on campus is Satchmo’s because it is a nice area to just go and relax. I also enjoy the events there, like “open mic nights” and the “poetry jams.” During the day, it is a cool place to eat and relax in between classes with friends.
I love Loyolapalooza! Loyolapalooza takes place in the Spring, and it is a concert. It showcases local talent, including student bands, and also has major artists come to perform. The show is amazing and so much fun!

Loyola has grown me in many ways. For one, I have grown in my faith from attending Loyola. I have always been a spiritual person, so the values and founding principles of the school encouraged me to be representative of those values. I love the fact that God is openly acknowledged and discussed on campus. Also, I believe Loyola has prepared me for the corporate world because I have been able to interact with people from all walks of life. This is very essential because I will have to engage with different types of people.
Loyola encourages community service. Every organization on campus fosters community service. Community service is also ingrained in the creed of the school. One of the largest organizations on campus, LUCAP, is a community service organization. This should stand as a testament of Loyola’s commitment to community service.
I participate in BSU, Black Student Union. This organization is the second largest organization on campus. I am also involved with Legal EU, which services local and student bands with intellectual property. The Production EU handles events and productions on campus and in the
