"Loyola University Maryland provides a lot of great learning opportunities for prospective business students, and they definitely cater their needs of their business students as well. Because I was not in the Business school, I did feel as though my needs as a creative were considered secondary. However, the Writing program did have many knowledgable and encouraging professors that helped my creative writing greatly. The main appeal of going to Loyola is their study abroad programs. In the second half of my Junior year, I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Beijing for five months. My time in Beijing taught me a lot about myself, and a lot about the world that I hadn't previously known. Living in Beijing was one of the absolute best experiences in my life, and without Loyola, I would have never had that experience. Loyola gave me a good foundation, but I definitely still felt the need to attend graduate school to be fully prepared for my desired career."

"I loved this program as it gave me so much opportunity for classroom experience while learning the theories and philosophy behind the processes. I felt immensely prepared for the teaching profession based on the curriculum as well as the classroom placements throughout and the year long student teaching opportunity. My last year I had my financial aid pulled as my older brother was graduated from his university and they were not very helpful in finding supplementary grants or monetary opportunities, so therefore I had to take out massive loans for my final year as I was beginning my senior year and student teaching within the next two weeks."

"Loyola University Maryland was a great school to attend. The best part about my experience was the classes I took and the advantages I had being located in a major city. I was easily able to take a taxi ride from my school to the train station and take the train home. As far as the classes went Im glad I was able to take a variety of classes to help me decide on my major, since I went into college undecided. The faculty was, for the most part, really nice and helpful. Some of my favorite classes I took werent even in my major. I took some really great art classes, in which I was able to go to a huge art museum. I also took some great History and English classes as well. In my field of study I was able to complete some really great projects that, after graduation, I was able to some potential employers on job interviews. I would say the one regret I had was not taking advantage of the schools study abroad program. I know they offer classes in some really great locations. However, I did have a great year staying in Baltimore with my friends. Loyola has a lot of activities to offer around the Baltimore area that I was able to take advantage of. Overall it was a great experience!"

"Loyola University Maryland is a Jesuit institution that creates an excellent environment for academic success, personal growth, and connection with the community. Loyola creates a positive learning experience where class sizes are relatively small compared to big universities. Professors know students by name and are genuinely invested in the quality of work and the development of each student. The "Study," Writing Center, and Library staff are extremely helpful and provide support whenever you need it. Loyola has a great athletic department, service opportunities, and additional organizations spanning a variety of interests. The Evergreen Campus is beautiful and it takes less than 10 minutes to walk to class! I absolutely loved my experience at Loyola and continue now as a graduate student. Loyola is a special place and I hope you learn to love it as I do!"

"Loyola University Maryland is a great college with a beautiful campus and lively student body. I am forever grateful for the core curriculum and Jesuit influence that emphasizes "care for the whole person." We were required to take philosophy, theology, science, and math no matter our program or desired degree--which I believed help foster a holistic outlook to life itself. The professors are friendly, and more often than not, foster a real relationship with students. It's a fun campus, in an interesting part of Baltimore. The students are involved and take pride in whatever program they are taking part in (TCSJ, Campus Ministry, Resident Assistants, OAE, etc.). The Humanities Building is the most recognizable and relaxing part of campus--here is where I took most of my Writing classes, and where I subsequently found out what my calling would be--screenwriting. I made excellent connections and valuable peer feedback in my field of study. Overall, it's a place for intellectuals who know how to have fun."

"Plenty to do in the Baltimore area, especially after turning 21. Close to Washington DC and Philly. Majority of students from the Northeast, A friendly community where everyone knows everyone. Most students typically live in nice on-campus apartments all four years which is unique and also less stressful."

"Loyola University Maryland was an excellent place to attend for an undergraduate degree. The campus is beautiful, and I had an amazing time there. The Center for Community Service and Justice provided wonderful opportunities to participate in weekly service and immersion programs. I highly recommend Loyola Maryland!"

  • Degree: Mechanical Engineering
"Loyola University Maryland was a fantastic school with a rigorous curriculum and many opportunities, however, those opportunities were not as significant/relevant for the engineering field as I would have liked. This review will focus on my degree program: BS in Mechanical Engineering. Within engineering schools I make a distinction, those that teach "theoretical engineering" and those that teach "hands-on/practical engineering". Loyola was part of the former. Although I loved my education and was able to have unique opportunities such as studying abroad, amount other things, for my engineering education most of the learning was course work. Little time was spend in major research labs or performing "job like" experimentation (this of course, a result of their limited research budget). I would have liked to have seen more of an emphasis on this. In their defense, an exception can be made as it regards the Capstone(or senior year) project. I felt this was a very hands on and practical experience which forced me to incorporate in real life what I had learned in the last few years. All this aside, the campus life was awesome, housing is one of the best in the nation, the teachers are very notably highly capable (with the exception of a few bad apples), it is well respected, and, most importantly, (and i know they clichly always emphasize this) the core curriculum that forces you to be exposed to different fields of study will most definitely turn you into a more complete person and well rounded thinker. I would definitely recommend Loyola."

"Overall, the best part about studying Biology at Loyola Maryland was the faculty. My professors were invested in me and my success. They were there to help with course material, advising, and recommending possible careers. The best piece of advice I can give is to reach out and get to know your professors; they once stood where you will be and they want to share their knowledge and passion with you. If you show your eagerness to learn and show your commitment to the class the will help you in every way possible! Loved my all around experience!"

"I liked many of my professors in the school counseling program, but overall I felt like it was a money-making program rather than an actual career preparation program. The job market for school counseling is incredibly competitive, and the program did nothing to prepare me for that."

"Loyola maintains a very professional and warm environment with a high academic standard. They also maintain a strong adherence to Jesuit values. As a graduate student, there are many opportunities available and organizations to join. Teachers and staff are pleasant and usually readily available to provide support and answer questions. The level of education I am receiving is interesting, involving and intellectually stimulating."

"The Program is designed to prepare students to enter the field of counseling fully prepared to meet the challenges they will face. The professors are responsive to student concerns and when appropriate will make the necessary adjustments to better support the students needs. The Columbia Campus has many resources and is centrally located for students to access it from various surrounding communities. How, the location is a challenge for individuals using public transportation."

"The Executive Fellows MBA program is fabulous - its mid level career professionals who are working and going to school full-time and need what they're doing in the classroom to be immediately applicable to what they're doing. Everything I learned I was able to put to use in some way, if only to broaden my understanding of the inter-connectivity of larger leadership and business systems"

"Currently pursuing the Masters program in Counseling Psychology. The environment is not very diverse, but plenty of diversity can be found in Baltimore City. Aura of community service and adhering to Jesuit values which is beneficial, but as a private school is VERY expensive. Lack of information passed onto students for pursuing licensure which can be frustrating. Professors are excellent and experts in their respective fields; I can only think of one professor I would not ever want to take again. Individual would need to take the information presented and seek out opportunities for underprivileged consumers; not a lot of diversity within the program itself or the undergraduate student body."

"I am confident that the education and training I have received from Loyola have set me up to succeed in the field of psychology. Politics can be frustrating in this program, as with any doctoral program, but Loyola's cohorts certainly feels more welcoming and "family like" than any other competitive program."
