What is your advice for a student looking to transfer to Loyola?
I always recommend that any student considering transferring to Loyola plans a visit and tour of campus, even if they have visited before as a high school student. A student who is transferring already knows what college is like in general, so they’re able to get a lot more specific information on what it’s really like to be a student at Loyola when they go out on tour and speak with our students.
What I recommend during your stay in Baltimore:
Close to campus, you can never go wrong with lunch at Miss Shirley’s after a morning visit! Walking and using the water taxi to explore Baltimore’s waterfront - Fort McHenry, Inner Harbor, Harbor East, Fells Point, Canton – are both great ways to get a taste of Baltimore’s different neighborhoods. A biscotti or cannoli in Little Italy can help keep you going until game time at Oriole Park or until the curtains go up at the current production at the Hippodrome Theater.
