What's your favorite thing about Loyola?
The personalized education that each student experiences. No two students will have the same journey. Each student is valued for their uniqueness. That sort of quality can only be experienced in a community as strong and close-knit as Loyola's.
What's your best piece of advice to a prospective student?
Spend some time on campus! Sign-up for an info session and a tour, but mostly, make sure to leave some room for casual interactions. Engage with current students, staff, and faculty. Ask them why they chose that school and if they would recommend it. Ask them what their favorite and least favorite thing about the school is. Also, make sure to explore the surroundings of a school. Its location has a huge impact on a student’s day-to-day.
