What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Loras is a small school offering many opportunities to get involved. Having a smaller campus allows close contact with professors. It is also very easy to get involved in almost anything desired.
Kristina from Sumner, IA
I love going to Loras. The professors are very knowledgeable and great at what they do, teaching! The only 'bad' thing about Loras is that it is not a very good campus for those with physical disabilities.
