What I like most about Loyola: I love how everyone at Loyolafrom students to staff and facultymake this place such a warm and welcoming environment that one feels that they are among family members. As a graduate from a Jesuit institution, I would say that the Jesuit love and spirit is definitely felt and expressed here. One never feels alone in their walk at Loyola, as we have such a great and diverse community making this place a sanctuary not only for education but for personal and spiritual growth as well. I truly love how Loyola’s Jesuit values, curriculum, and powerful influence on developing people holistically is centered around diversity, inclusivity, and faith.

Loyola has taught me to pursue my passions in everything I do.
