    I definitely think Loyola delivers. Being a private institution, it is nice to see our tuition being used for things like progression in environmental sustainability, access to more technology, improved dorms and recreational spaces, and free passes to use public transportation. Especially because Loyola also offers a lot of scholarships, I think you definitely get everything you'd ever want in a college for what you pay.

    Loyola does offer a lot of resources for students. Your Loyola ID can give you access to free CTA rides, the information commons to study, and a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. It's a little more expensive but there are a lot of opportunities for a Loyola student.

    It is definitely an expensive school since it is private. However some of the classrooms and dorm rooms could use some maintenance.

    expensive school with great scholarships make it justifiable but not a bargain. i think it's worth it though and won't transfer to cheaper uic.

    This school is shockingly expensive, but that's because it's a private school and Loyola has to pay for many things including maintenance, professors and other expenses. However, Loyola does give a lot back to the community and provide quite a lot of financial aid to students to make it more affordable. Also, Loyola is considered a Baby Ivy school, so you're really paying for a genuine education.
