My review

The Good:

The diversity and overall sense of goodwill among the student body makes for a really comfortable and stimulating learning environment. The professors here are so accessible and always eager to help students. Loyola’s student population is a good size too- not too big, not too small, which also makes for smaller, intimate class sizes. Not to mention that it’s beautiful Uptown New Orleans location is in one of the country’s largest cultural capitals.

The Bad:

The school spirit as far as sports goes isn’t very high, which sort of has to do with the fact that we’re in the NAIA Division and that we don’t have a football team. It’s not that students don’t love the school, it’s just that sports are hardly a priority for anyone so turnout at games isn’t high for the most part.

Would I do it again?

Yes, Honestly, choosing to go to a Jesuit school in a city like New Orleans was the best decision I’ve ever made. Not only am I getting a top-notch education that covers a vast array of fields, but I’m in constant interaction with a campus community that genuinely cares for me and wants to see me succeed.
