At Loyola, learning takes place both in and out of the classroom. Starting with Messina, a first-year living learning program, students have the opportunity to participate in small, seminar-style classes enriched by a variety of co-curricular activities that support the themes discussed in class. Other students take advantage of service-learning classes, while countless others choose to study abroad during their junior year. Some students participate in our Honors or ROTC programs. While Loyola’s curriculum is rigorous and faculty expectations are high, everyone is here to see you succeed. Faculty often go out of their way to make sure you understand the course materials, how it applies to everyday life, and how your coursework impacts the world. We make sure you have the experiences you need to succeed in life – not just in your profession.
