"Both the faculty and the students make Loyola an extraordinary community. The friendly learning environment they create constitutes an exceptional opportunity to learn, to make friends, and to grow. At the social level, Loyola makes a very vibrant and lively community. With many different student groups that organize around issues of social justice, education is not limited to the brain alone but also to the empowerment of the whole person."
