| This was the best decision of my life to attend Loyola University Maryland for undergrad. The reason i love it so much is because they actually separate their English and Writing departments, which meant that i had the freedom to be a Writing major without having to take a bunch of english literature courses. |
It's also important to know that this is a friendly campus, but it's also a campus where everyone may know your business before they even get to know you. It's like a small town pretty much. If you are looking to date someone who attends Loyola as well, just know that everyone is going to know about you and be all in your business (which is why i made sure my bf does NOT go to my school lol)
Also the faculty and professors are great, especially in the writing department. They are very helpful, show concern for the students, and make it known that they are here to help us succeed in any way possible. They are almost never late for office hours.
Although this school is predominantly white the students here are so friendly. Nobody looks at me oddly because I am African American. I feel just as good and accepted as the next person here. So if you are a minority i would recommend Loyola University Maryland to you as well because you will rarely feel like an outcast because of your race. Also Loyola University Maryland has an ALANA program which sponsors groups like the Black Student Association, the Asian Cultural Alliance, the Caribbean Students Union, and ALAS. I have made some of my best friends here. I'm a graduating senior and i'm very sad to leave because they became a second family to me.

| I love Loyola a lot of students do go out on the weekends to bars and clubs in the area which can get a little expensive. The students and faculty are incredibly friendly, and really do come together to support each other and attend school events such as lacrosse games, relay for life and the fall and spring concerts. |

| Loyola is strong academically, and quite challenging. The faculty are intelligent, inspired, and clearly have a passion for teaching. They are available and accessible, and welcome students for one-on-one assistance and discussions. If you are doing poorly in a class, the professor will almost always make him/herself available outside of class to discuss opportunities for improvement. I went to a public high school and schoolwork was always a breeze for me; I was challenged at Loyola.|
As for the social life, emphasis is on drinking, but there are plenty of opportunities (clubs, organizations, volunteer opportunities) for students who don't wish to partake in those activities. I've read a lot of reviews about students drinking 5 nights a week; this was not my experience at all. Everyone I knew mostly reserved partying for the weekends, and worked during the week to keep up with their courses.
The campus itself is gorgeous, and offers all of the amenities of a city in the comfort of a residential neighborhood. Some of Baltimore's best neighborhoods and attractions are just a short cab ride away.As for the social scene, it can be cliquey, yet there are always people who gravitate toward each other. There is someone for everyone on campus, and friends you make usually remain throughout your years there.
