4.0

WHAT I LIKED

The location of the school is perfect. It is on the north side of the city, right on the water. You get the city feel with an escape to nature when needed. The student center is an active hub that promotes events, student organizations, and even private study spaces.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Depending on your area of study, classes fill up very quickly and priority is given to student-athletes and honors students.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I’m a commuter and I meet someone new every day. The teachers and staff will go above and beyond to make the students here feel comfortable as possible.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I have not noticed a flaw at Loyola. I’m happy that I picked this school.

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

The school provided many opportunities for students to reach out for help. There is a good atmosphere of people with a beautiful view that is relaxing. Though it is tough considering the number of credit hours required to graduate professors can be considerate and do understand when around finals and midterms.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is very busy in the dining halls and Damen and not many seats and tables. There is more homework writing/essay-wise. With covid, professors will tend to cancel a class more often without much notice.
