Update: Loyola will suspend campus reopening and continue online learning for the fall semester. Find more information on Loyola's coronavirus website.


Loyola offers rigorous programs grounded in the liberal arts, focused primarily on developing students as well-rounded scholars and leaders who are distinctly prepared to succeed in every aspect of their lives. Upholding the Jesuit value of academic excellence, our curriculum further challenges students to understand the ethical dimensions of personal and professional life, and to examine their own values, attitudes, and beliefs.

Why the liberal arts?

An education grounded in the liberal arts leads to an intellectual fearlessness, achieved through the development and enhancement of competence, character, and community. What’s more, it provides students the foundation they need for any and every opportunity they will encounter—at Loyola and beyond.
