What I love most about Loyola: The passion that lives in each student, faculty and staff member here is contagious. There is a something especially sweet about this our campus - rooted in the passions of others - that permeates across campus that underscores the value of helping others carry out their dreams while simultaneously pursuing one’s own desires. Students here have ample opportunities to reflect on life's big questions, have conversations that inspire creativity, participate in experiences that challenge folks to reach higher and a campus within a magical city – achieving and living out your wildest dreams at Loyola is a reality for so many students here. I love it!

I spent every summer on campus working for the Orientation program, and summertime in Chicago is unlike anywhere else.
