What attracted you to Loyola:

All of my professors at Loyola have set very high standards for students. This kind of atmosphere allows students to gain a deep knowledge of the subject matter and makes for great class discussions.

My parents have always been my biggest inspiration. My Mom is an elementary school principal and my Dad has worked for the University of Wisconsin for many years.
