What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
-Check out the school website loyno.edu
- Visit the campus (But be sure to visit it while classes are in session, so you can get the feel of how campus life is during the year)
- Sit-in a class to experience the Jesuit education Loyola offers and remember Loyola does not force religion on you... but it does want you to have knowledge of different religions and cultures so that you are able to understand different people.
-Visit the City Park (This is a beautiful park across from the Loyola campus, that many students go to study or work-out)
-Ride the street car.
-Visit the campus gym.
-Most importantly ASK questions!
Zaina from Metairie, LA
Visit the school during the school year, not during the summer. Sure, the buildings are nice, but as in all colleges, thats not what you are really looking for. As a prospective student you need to pick a school that fits you best, and you may be able to tell instantly that the school you visit one random day is the one that is a perfect fit. Figure out what you want to do, and find a school that excels in that subject. If not, find a school that has several diverse opportunities for your major to be.
Brandon from Kenner, LA
I would definitely advise any prospective students to come visit; you can see what the people are like, how they actually use the campus, etc.

Also, don't be put off by the fact that it's a Jesuit school; religion is never pushed on anybody, not even in the religion courses themselves. It's mind opening and people are very down to earth, not uptight.
Make sure that you are willing to work hard and evaluate yourself. A large part of Loyola is looking inward and improving yourself. Not only are you encouraged academically, but spiritually whether you are Catholic or not. You must be open to criticism because it will be given; it is up to you how you take it.
Natalie from Hot Springs, AR
If money is a problem, it is not a problem here. Admissions will throw money at students and help you to get the best financial aid package available.
Alliciyia from Zachary, LA
If you like the close-knit community feeling and being able to make friends within the week of move-in day or being able to have a one-to-one teacher to student relationship or walking short distances to your classes or feeling at home and having countless opportunities available at your fingertips, Loyola University New Orleans is the right choice for you!
Lily from New Orleans, LA
Visit campus! Before visiting campus, I didn't think there was much of a chance I would attend the school, but I found that everyone there was incredibly kind - students, teachers, admissions officers, cafeteria workers, and the like. If you want a welcoming community that accepts all races, religions, sexualities, gender identities, etc. you will fit in perfectly at Loyola.

Dobt get caught up in the New Orleans scene and use the time you have wisely. Don't be afraid to ask for help, because there will always be someone there willin to help you.
Cheyenne from Covington, LA
Study hard and work hard and you shall succeed at Loyola.
