"Loyola is a wonderful school for someone who wants to be a part of "Big City Life" while still getting a rigorous education. The professors at Loyola are dedicated and very knowledgeable. As a social work major I did have mostly adjunct professors, but I believed this added immensely to my education since they were still working within the field. We often had the opportunity to discuss case studies as they were occurring. The honors program is also something to consider when enrolling as it has a heightened level of academics as well as a strong sense of community. The campus is on the North side of the city so you are not right downtown. This makes for a nice residential feeling. However, depending on your major, you may also have classes at the downtown campus, which is easily accessible by train, bus, or a Loyola provided shuttle."

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015
"As a student with an eclectic interest in history, Loyola offered me more class options than I could take advantage of in an undergraduate history program. For students interested in modern Eastern European history I'd recommend any class taught by Dr. M.S., For those interested in Russian history I'd recommend any class by Dr. M. K. Those unafraid of being challenged and interested in English and Norse history should check out classes by Dr. T.. For Latin American history, Dr. D.B.r is an accomplished historian and author. For a more cerebral and thoughtful approach, Mr. B.L. teaches an excellent course in Classical Greek studies. It's very important to take note of the dates when registration opens and to be prepared to quickly choose which classes you wish to enroll in. Loyola has a wide selection of courses but the best classes fill up fast, so keep on your toes!"

"Loyola University Chicago is a great school. One of its greatest assets is its location in Chicago. The main campus is in a residential area on the North side of Chicago right on Lake Michigan. One of the things I loved the most about Loyola was the student diversity. I worked with interfaith ministries and it was great to have so many students from different countries and religions working together."

"Loyola has one of the mos beautiful campuses I have ever seen. Beautiful view of the lake from the information commons. There is a pretty big green movement on campus with a lot of the buildings being environmentally friendly and the production of biosoap on campus. There is a great variety of courses to take to fulfill art core. I thoroughly enjoyed the majority of the courses needed to fulfill my major. Very few complaints on staff."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"I really loved the Psychology, Spanish, Polish Studies and Honors Programs at Loyola University Chicago! The interdisciplinary approach was fantastic, and I felt challenged but always learning something new about the content and about myself as a student. I have to admit, I did not utilize the career counseling services. I had a mentor in the Psychology program who was amazing at helping me with the next steps in my career. Also, I had some issues with the financial aid office. I would pay by sending checks to the school, and they were lost on many occasions. This was very frustrating. I really loved that there were so many student clubs on campus, especially cultural clubs. I also felt like the University had a lot of great connections with local businesses, which allowed students to explore the city and gain more knowledge through work or internship opportunities!"

"Loyola University Chicago represents an engaged, intelligent and active community that made for a memorable experience both inside and outside the classroom. With strong connections to the vibrant city of Chicago, many of our professors were practicing professionals; and with the city outside our doorstep, we were able to build impactful professional (and personal) connections from the get-go. As a result of this differentiated college experience, I was ultimately able to secure a full-time job in my field before graduation, midst the recession. LUC graduates are highly sought after by Chicago employers in particular as thought-provoking, collaborative and engaged professionals ‰ÛÓ and I owe a lot of my professional success to this tremendous academic institution."

"Loyola Chicago is a great school. With any school you reap what you sow, and the more you put into it, the more get in return. One of the great assets of the university is the city itself. Chicago is filled with countless opportunities for employment, internships, networking, and cultural activities. There are so many opportunities and experiences for students to take advantage of."

"Loyola has an excellent faculty that are focused on your success if you engage them. The campus is a very relaxing and beautiful place on the lake which never seems crowded as most students are commuters who do not stick around after class. If you start your degree at Loyola there are equal opportunities to make friendships as any other university; however, transfer students will need to work extra hard to find their clique."
