Ashlin from Metairie, LA

Alliciyia from Zachary, LA
Loyola University-New Orleans is absolutely astonishing and amazing at what they do. No other words can describe what a great Jesuit university Loyola is. They truly fulfill what a true Jesuit university entitles.
Lily from New Orleans, LA
Loyola is a diverse and accepting community good for students who want to keep an open mind and learn from others. While music and mass com majors will find that they are especially spoiled with opportunities, there is more than enough for everyone here. Loyola strives to teach their students lessons that will be helpful in their careers, and in their personal and spiritual lives as well.
marisa from brecksville, oh
I originally found this college through lists that had been posted online of beautiful college dorms. I can't wait to start school here and enjoy the lush grass and beauty of the architecture all throughout the city.
Stephanie from Chagrin Falls, OH
Loyola is an amazing school. A lot of the professors are very experienced within their fields, and willing to help out. It's a lot of fun to be part of the pack.
