What Students Are Saying

4.14 Average Rating
The community at Loyola College is very family like. The size is not big, so it is not overwheliming for freshman, and people are generally friendly. Class sizes aree small, so teachers are always available to their students during their office hours. For upcoming freeshman, all I can say is that the school is very welcoming and you will enjoy the people here.
Ricardo from Silver Spring, MD
Be honest in your application essay - be you. Don't write about the typical this person inspires me... I went on a great trip to... Write about what YOU are passionate about. Write about what makes you different, what makes you unique. Also, I would highly recommend submitting a resume, because it is getting very competitive to get into Loyola. Finally, I highly suggest an interview. You want them to know who you really are, not just a name on the thousands of applications they read. What really helped me was the interview - the guy who was interviewing me told me that I was exactly the type of student Loyola was looking for, and it encouraged me throughout the entire college process.

Be prepared to work your first semester. It is nothing like your most difficult course in high school, it is harder. Do not be afraid to reach out for help if you need it the first year.
Kiersten
-Get involved. There are tons of clubs, activities, and community service opportunities, you are bound to find some that interest you.
-Don't forget to leave time for your schoolwork. Although it is important to get out of your room and do stuff, you need to know when to do your schoolwork.
-Go out on a limb, try something new, something you've always wanted to do but couldn't in high school.
Stefanie from Brooklyn, NY
Decide if a core curriculum is what you really want to do. Also, the great amount of attention paid by professors here is not really offered at other schools.
Amanda from Barrington, NJ
Engage yourself in a lot of community service, work hard to keep your grades up, and show genuine interest in the school.
Julie from Glen Rock, NJ
Come see the campus and talk to our students! The second you meet the students on campus you are bound to fall in love with the school.
Samantha from NJ
Don't listen to every review you read. Come here and visit at different points in the year. Find clubs you would join and contact their leaders.
Stephanie from West Warwick, RI
Be prepared for not so much of a culture shock, Loyola is trying but there isn't that much culture. Baltimore is very cultured but you have to leave the Loyola bubble!
Tamarah from Bloomfield, CT
I think that my number one tip for a prospective student is to not be nervous. College is a whole new experience that every incoming freshmen has never experienced before. Everyone is on the same boat. The more you open yourself up to stepping out of ones comfort zone the more you get to learn about yourself and the world around you. Another huge tip that I would give every prospective student is to get involved. There is not an easier and more efficient way to meet more students, faculty. staff and administrators than by getting involved in different, events, committees, clubs, etc. on campus.
