What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
loyola has a gorgeous campus,, and is in a quiet, diverse area of a great city. being a relatively expensive, private institution, however, means that the make-up of the university is not nearly as diverse. the small size and great reputation will ensure that you receive an extremely personal and through education.
Jason from Chicago, IL
loyola university is a wonderful school to attend. class sizes are fairly small to medium which allows teachers and students to interact. when i graduate from loyola, i know it will be a name that will easily get me a job.
