What I like most about Loyola: At Loyola, it is impossible to escape the emphasis of social justice. Through every facet of the university from the academics to student life, the focus is 'how can what I'm doing impact others and the world around me'. Centering service and social justice changed how I view the world and is an influence I've kept with me through Loyola and beyond.

My acceptance to medical school is because Loyola helped me succeed as an undergraduate.
