Greyhounds have the largest heart of any dog
Joyful. Compassionate. Courageous. Persistent. Spirited. Devoted. Kind.
This is the kind of heart you will develop at Loyola. A heart that you also find in your peers, in your professors, and in Loyola's 62,000 alumni. A heart that makes you a forever Greyhound.
Dare to be you
With just over 4,000 undergraduates and a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio, Loyola University Maryland is big enough to be rich in opportunity and small enough for these opportunities to be accessible. Loyola makes it easy to embrace new challenges, feel comfortable taking risks, and connect to the experiences and resources you need to develop as a learner, leader, citizen, and professional.
Loyola students feel called and confident in trying new activities, sharing their talents, asking bold questions, and expressing ideas and opinions others might find controversial.
We cultivate an open, supportive, and accepting environment here, because such an environment is fundamental to our identity as a Jesuit institution. Only in a community like ours can students learn authentic lessons about who they are and the world they live in, open up new and unexpected pathways for themselves, and fully understand and experience what it means to be Jesuit educated.
