Information for Parents
The college decision process can be overwhelming for students and their families. We want you to know that we're here to help. At Loyola, the parents and family members of our students are an extension of our campus community. We're here to help guide you through every step of the college admission process.
Please review this important information about our Rome Center campus, including how to help your student prepare for Rome, health and safety information, medical insurance requirements, visit info, and answers to other frequently asked questions. If you have additional questions about the Rome Start program, please contact Anna Carlson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We invite you to join out our Loyola University Chicago Parents Facebook page, which is exclusively for parents of current and future Loyola students. Network with Loyola staff members to get answers to your questions and connect with other Loyola parents.
Here's what several parents have to say about how their students have changed at Loyola:
"Since Allison has been attending Loyola, she has had a big change in the general way she looks at life. Her confidence level is more projected, she's very interested in what other people are doing, and everything that she does is growing much faster than we could have ever imagined."
—Paul Hammond, father of Allison
"I've noticed a huge transformation in Zack, in his attitude about life and his ability to focus and work toward his goals. I think in high school, a lot of boys have certain ideas of what college life is going to be like, and there's a huge temptation to fall into some of those patterns. Having an alternate road for him to take by becoming involved in the dorm government and his volunteer activities has allowed him to see a bigger picture and choose a different path. And, he’s been able to achieve his potential in the classroom as well as outside the classroom."
—Candis Morrison, mother of Zack
"We've seen some real transformation in Dan. He's more self-assured, more self-confident. There are little things, like learning the "El" system in Chicago and being able to carry on some deeper conversations—just some maturity that has really been noticeable in the one year that he’s been here. We're very, very happy with that."
—Steven Neubauer, father of Dan
