What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
Do not take a class at 8:30 offered at the Water Tower Campus!One of the classes I would highly recommend is Human Values in Literature with Mr. Fruhauff. Overall, try to have an open mind about courses and balance out your schedule so that it fits your needs. Do not try to do too much in one semester but do try to get involved in extra curriculars. You will not regret it.

Sign up for the earliest orientation because you will register for classes there. If you are the earliest group, you have first pick on the best classes, professors, and times. Socially, you will be plunged into a community with tons of people you don't know, but be open, be friendly, and maybe some of the people in that group will one day become your closest friends. Also, the professors are there to offer you help, so take it. Get to know your professors and don't be afraid to ask questions or for help when you need it. The professors are very friendly and are always willing to help you. Apply early to Loyola and you might be able to get more financial aid as the scholarships are on a first come-first serve basis.

spend some time on campus before comitting to loyola. there is a certain and unmistakable environment on this campus that may not be suitable for everyone. there is no doubt, however, that the education you receive here will leave you prepared for the next step.
Jason from Chicago, IL
Take lots of CORE classes freshman year, so if you change your major later, your classes will still count!
Claire from Chicago, IL
Don't be afraid to approach Professors. It may be intimidating at first but the few heart stopping moments are worth valuable time with any Professor. Another tip, if the University offers a list of resources that are on campus, utilize them. They want you to succeed as much as you do.
Zoe from Chicago, IL
Apply as soon as you possibly can if you think you might want to go to Loyola, this will help you get the most aid since scholarships are on a first come, first serve basis. Also, if you plan to attempt to get into the nursing program spots fill up quickly, so the sooner you apply the better. But you should keep one thought in mind academically, it is easy to get into Loyola but hard to stay. Loyola will continuously challenge you in order to bring out your best, however it will not be easy!

AP classes really help in the long, even if they are annoying and the tests sometimes evil. Also, don't be afraid when visiting to ask questions. If you see a student just walking around, 9 times out of 10 he or she would be more than happy to talk to you (this way you're not just getting the perspectives of students who work for admissions-not that they are different from the rest of the student body). Also, take an overnight and attend class-this will help you see what really happens. Oh and apply early as it can make a difference in the financial aid dept.
Joel from IL
I would tell students to take advantage of all that Loyola has to offer. They offer a lot and it is up to us to find these opportunities.
