What I like most about Loyola: The huge amount of diversity on campus with students from many different countries, cultures and religious backgrounds. I really appreciate Loyola’s commitment to diversity and global awareness, which is a huge part of the Jesuit mission. I also love that Loyola’s two international centers, located in Rome, Italy and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam offer so many students the opportunity to study abroad easily and affordably. Students really get an international experience at Loyola!

What I like most about Loyola: The care and concern that the entire school takes to make sure its students are successful. There is a sense of inclusivity amongst everyone on campus which allows for students, and other members of the Loyola community to do and be their best. There is something here for every student. Being an institution founded in the Jesuit beliefs, has given Loyola a strong and solid foundation for its community to continue to grow in their faith, while also embracing and encouraging its students to grow in their knowledge of other faiths, nationalities, and cultures. Having campuses in Rome, and Ho Chi Minh City, further demonstrates Loyola’s belief in the importance of diversity and global awareness.
