What I like most about Loyola: I love that Loyola is the “best of both worlds” in several ways. Students have all the camaraderie of a traditional college campus while also living in one of the greatest cities in the world. They receive a rigorous, holistic education that encourages philosophical thought, and are also required to engage in professional training through internships and field experience. Finally, I love that Loyola is a Jesuit, Catholic institution that encourages students to grow their Catholic faith while also welcoming and celebrating our students from a wide range of faith backgrounds, cultures, and nationalities. 

Loyola’s values helped me realize that I can use science as a tool for social justice.
