Why Loyola?

Founded in 1852, Loyola has a long history of academic excellence. Students who attend will be challenged intellectually and encouraged to build a worldview that will guide their actions long after they graduate – here, students are not told what to think, but rather taught how to think critically, create a system of values, and how to apply these values in their daily life. This educational philosophy is embodied in our motto “Strong Truths Well Lived.” The goal of a Loyola education is to prepare students not only for a career, but to equip our students for life.

What's your favorite thing about Loyola?

Loyola has a gorgeous, calm campus located less than an hour from Washington D.C. that provides a great environment for study, and the fact that most students live on campus for their full degree program means that international students who attend will get a really authentic, traditional residential U.S. college experience. With stellar educational offerings, modern facilities, and fantastic placement after graduation, Loyola has a lot to offer students from all over the world!
