Loyola at a Glance

Loyola recognized nationally for campus fire safety

June 6, 2014

Loyola University New Orleans has been singled out nationally for its commitment to campus fire safety. The Princeton Review named Loyola among the top 23 colleges and universities in the nation with the highest fire safety scores. The rating is part of The Princeton Review’s Fire Safety Honor Roll 2014, which was recently released.

The rating, now in its eighth year, measures how well-prepared colleges and universities are to prevent or respond to campus fires. This year, The Princeton Review tallied scores ranging from 60 to 99 for 1,165 schools. Loyola, along with the other top-rated schools on the honor roll, scored a 99—the highest score possible.

“We salute these schools for their outstanding fire prevention programs. From installing fire alarm systems and smoke detectors to equipping a high percentage of their residence hall rooms with sprinkler systems, these schools demonstrate an exemplary commitment to safeguarding the lives of their students living on campus,” Robert Franek, the company’s senior vice president and publisher, said in a press release from The Princeton Review.
