| Love this school! It's been three years and as I now prepare for graduation I can't help but to think about how much I'll miss this place. Nowhere else would I have been as challenged intellectually as I have been here. Students are generally positive, optimistic, and supportive people. Professors are some of the best people I have ever met as well, but this is by design. I always ask around about which courses to take and who the best professors are. I haven't run into many unkind people here. I lived on campus three years so far and have never witnessed a fight- which speaks volumes in today's world.This place has a very 'gentle' feel compared to other universities, but how could it not? The fountains, lake Michigan, and church bells have a way of keeping things tranquil on campus. I'll miss the wonderful intellectual discourse, watching the campus leaves change color each fall, building snowmen on the quad, watching those same trees bloom each spring, and staying up way too late with great friends and watching the sunrise over lake Michigan. Ahh, LUC, I miss you already. Farewell, you have truly lived up to the phrase 'alma mater'- my nurturing mother. |

| As a prospective student is was very easy to disregard the negative opinions and say college is what you make of it. |
Most transfer students are unhappy, they describe the student body as close minded, not out going and snobbish. The kids at LUC believe they are better than everyone else. When asked about any stereotypes on LUC, answers include; smart, party school, cool kids, preps, prestige etc. How Modest right? The truth is that LUC will accept anyone that is willing to pay, (80% acceptance rate), has a total of two student bars (no dance floors), most students live in their dorm rooms, and personality-wise, if they aren't socially awkward they are liars with low self esteem.
The Dorms at LUC have insane restrictions. Quiet hours at 10, you have to register guests to get them past the gate keepers, you are limited to 2 guests a night and they can't stay past 1 am. This is the mindset of Loyola, you can't have a traditional college experience IE partying, hanging out with a group of friends etc.I previously attended the University of Iowa and to be honest I wish I was still at the University of Iowa. Don't disregard me as a cry baby that can't fit in. Iowa is one of the 10 best party schools in the nation, and besides the out of state tuition I did perfectly fine. To the prospective students, if you still don't believe me, I can't really blame you. I read LUC's reviews, I made the same mistake and I am transferring next semester.

| Oh Loyola...|
I transferred from the University of Iowa to the sheltered bubble that is loyola. You know how people tend to use filler words such as "like" or "you know" or "um" to describe something? When I describe Loyola I find that I cannot come up with any other words other than "introverted" "sheltered" "boring" "socially awkward" "um" "uhhh" "lame". Truth be told college is what you make it, when I was at Iowa it was not hard to find a fun time. Students at Loyola spend almost all of their time studying in their dorms. It is Hard to find fun, the city of Chicago is great but it is simply not enough. IF you want your college experience to consist of studying and getting a degree then by all means go to Loyola. IF you feel college should be more than just academics, IF you feel like college is an opportunity to grow, IF you feel like college is an opportunity to have fun DO NOT GO TO LOYOLA.
