While it does foster an amazing environment to really connect with your fellow peers, it does fall short in the connectivity between higher staffing and the students. Some of the staff are amazing though! It is a wonderful school if you are pursuing business.
Advocacy and inclusivity. While this school has made some progress over the years, it still has a long way to go.
I love the community build around Loyola and being involved with Baltimore City. I enjoy my peers and have a close relationship with my professors.
Loyola is a great private school that provides the safest campus, lots of activities, various food options on campus even Starbucks on campus, school-provided transportation(school Shuttles) to take you to different parts of campus, and lots of amenities such as an indoor pool and gym.
Nothing! great campus.
My first year at Loyola University Maryland was very much valuable to me due to the emphasis on community and resources. Talking to professors and seeking out advice was simple and accessible, and I was able to also pursue my own interests through extracurriculars. Overall, I felt very supported and look forward to taking advantage of the many opportunities present in the coming semesters.
I think as a prospective student, one should consider the size of the school, in terms of the student body. Though it's not like you will know every single person, meeting people does make the school seem smaller. This can be a plus but also may not be if you are the type of person who prefers a huge school where it would take more effort to be known.
The academics are great at Loyola, but specifically in the psychology department, there are too many students pursuing the major and there are enough classes and teachers available for psychology classes.
The living situation as freshman, the dorms aren't the best.
The Loyola University of Maryland is a small, close-knitted community that follows Ignatian values and is thriving with diversity and inclusivity. As an African American woman going to a PWI, I thought I would struggle with finding my identity and who I am, but Loyola has only supported me in doing that because of the many clubs and the institution of ALANA (African, Latinx, Asian, and Native American) coalition that supports and uplift people of color. The academics have challenged me to think far beyond myself and how can I apply the skills I have learned to areas of my life and put them into practice. My social life is thriving because there is constantly something to do and somewhere to go on campus to promote community within Loyola.
I did experience racism during my first year with my roommate, but Loyola de-escalated and solved the issue quickly and efficiently.
