Loyola was established in 1904 by Jesuit priests, firmly rooting the institution in the Jesuit beliefs of educating the whole person. Much of our colorful and distinguished history can be seen in those who call Loyola their alma mater: people who went on to become city leaders, teachers, scientists, attorneys, pharmacists, musicians, and business executives.
Here, students use creative thinking to influence the world, amid the unique and vibrant setting of New Orleans. Are you ready?

Our Jesuit Identity
As part of the Jesuit approach to education, you'll be asked to think critically, examine attitudes, challenge assumptions, and analyze motives. In other words, we'll help you shape your whole person. All of this builds your ability to make decisions based in freedom, love, and faith. This integral piece of the Loyola experience is especially visible in our liberal arts curriculum and our community service opportunities.
