Loyola Marymount University Top Questions

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Mila

There are many social clubs, honor society affiliations, as well as outreach programs.

Corinne

A lot of people are apart of fraternities and sororities as well as service organizations.

Aya

Many people on this campus, girls and guys alike, are a part of the Greek Life here. Greek Life is definitely a huge part of the campus, as you'll see many people wearing their shirts or sweatshirts, or carrying around their bags that represent the frat or sorority that they are a part of. Because sports are not a huge part of our school and our sports teams are not that great, sports is not a priority here at the school, and many people could probably care less about it. Basketball is our big sport, but I don't think there's too much buzz around sports on the campus. There are volunteer organizations on this campus, some exclusive, some open to everyone, so many people are involved with service. If it's possible, people do leave their doors open.

The most popular thing as of right now seems to be the sororities and fraternities, since freshman were recently encouraged to join. There is honestly a party every weekend.

There are so many different things to get involved in at LMU. Greek life is big on campus. There are constantly sorority/fraternity events going on. Also service organizations are pretty popular. In my dorm, every one leaves their doors open and are very social. We always hang out or eat lunch in each others rooms. There are parties every weekend, but it is easy to not party too. A lot of students party and a lot don't. Regardless, we are in LA and there is always tons of stuff to do, both on and off campus. Many weekends people go to the Grove, 3rd streeet promenade, the movies etc. It is not rare to make an In-n-Out run at 2am for a late night craving. If you yell down your hall that you are going, you are likely to get many takers to come as well. Unfortunately, most things off campus, you do have to bike or drive to, there is not a lot of stuff to do walking distance.

At LMU, the most popular student groups are sororities/fraternities and service organizations. Though sororities and fraternities exist primarily for socializing, they also provide opportunities for leadership and philanthropy. The service organizations are very well organized and have a strong presence on campus as well. As a freshman, I joined a feminist service organization called Marians. In it I was able to volunteer at battered women's shelters, help educate the student body about women's health issues such as breast cancer and heart disease, and meet many interesting young women with values similar to mine.

We have it all! Athletics, Service, Greek Life, Spiritual Life, etc. It depends on the students interest. For me, I love the service community the most. Our patron saint, Ignatius of Loyola, is the model of service and love.

Joe

There are a lot of groups on campus. They range from different ethnic clubs to major oriented clubs. Popular ones I can think of off the top of my head are Mane Entertainment and ASLMU. Those are the people who organize a lot of the events that are held on campus. Many of these are events are fun and FREE (with free food). Not a lot of people show up to the events, but if you do it's usually a good time. It all comes down to yourself, once again, and really just trying new things.

Greek Life is pretty big, but at the same time small. Only 20% of the student body involved, but a big percentage of non-commuters. We also have service organizations which are great to join. And there are tons and tons of clubs to join from. Cultural clubs have yearly events. We also celebrate black history month. Lots of great different things to join!

Jim

You need to get involved in various clubs, organizations beyond academics. Living on camopus the firt 2 years is a huge advantage to meeting people.

Shelby

Greek life seems to be everywhere, even though there are not official greek houses. Student dorm doors might be left open, but the people that live there are always in the room if it is. LMU is very safe. 24 hour escorts, security-public safety, cameras everywhere, etc. Library is open very late. There is ALWAYS something to do here, whether it be during the day or the middle of the night, you WILL find something. Live on-campus, so much easier. Although you can party more off-campus, you would be at LMU for an education and that is what will keep you there. Stay focused!
