What is your favorite thing about Loyola?

I love that Loyola is truly focused on making your experience personalized and unique to you. You’ll have countless opportunities to pursue classes that interest you, join clubs and organizations that fit your interests, and look for internships that meet your specific career goals. No two students will have the exact same experience here at Loyola. On top of that, I also love how dedicated our professors are to making sure their students succeed both in and outside of the classroom. Our professors have your best interests in mind, and that is reflected in all that they do.

What is your best piece of advice for a prospective student? 

I always encourage students to get on-campus and visit as many schools as possible. This is the best way to help envision yourself on a college campus – seeing it in-person, having conversations with current students, and getting a sense of the overall feel of campus. If you’re not able to make it in-person, many schools will have virtual opportunities and workshops for you to explore. Whether you can check out a school in-person or through a virtual tour, it’s so important to get familiar with the schools you’re interested in and decide if it’s a good fit for you.
