What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Know yourself well enough to choose a school that makes you happy. Don't buy into what others say or feel about a place, and don't worry too much about a school's reputation. Ultimately, college anywhere is what you make of it. Know what you want out of college--whether it is friends for life, a good education, a better understanding of the world--and consider that the most when making your decision.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

the facilities kind of suck, administration is somewhat detached...cost wayyy too much

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You have to let your son or daughter go with their own gut feeling, not yours. They should feel comfortable there, see potential is making new friends, and picking a program that is strong and offers them lots of opportunities beyond the classroom. If someone does not go with their own feelings but just settles for something, they will not be as happy as if they pushed themselves a bit into a new environment and learn to live on their own. As a shy girl who moved 6 hours away from home to a school where I did not know anyone even from my own city going there, there was no better way to learn to live on my own, grow bolder, and make closer friendships than ever before. Sometimes you just have to take a risk.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is open to having smaller classes, getting to know everyone, being a little artsy/funky, and open to having fun with friends but still able to balance getting their work done every once and a while

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How laid back everyone is, how friendly and open to new things people are, the ability to go out any night of the week and have a blast with your friends, as well getting a good education

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It's a small, private school that is geared toward the benefit of the students. The teachers at Loyola tend to push the students very hard and as a result many students succeed. In addition, the majority of students are very focused and for the most part very nice and approachable people.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When looking at colleges parents and students should look at when they want a private school or a public school. They should look at the size and cost of the school and whether or not the school offers what the perspective students wants out of his or her college career.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Since I am a music student I use the practice rooms in the music building very often and at times they are very crowded which makes it impossible for me to practice. In my opinion the school should install more practice rooms with better pianos.

Describe the students at your school.

The most interesting and diverse group of people at one college. Really a great place to meet all walks of a liberal arts college student. I always hear music and see people with paint or charcoal all over their clothes, and everyone that I am around writes a great deal.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for its Jazz Studies, Music and Music Industries programs, but their Communications, English, Arts, Liberal Arts and Humanities, and Biology programs are great. The law school is also well known.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice is to be creative and adventerous. I went to a high school where 85% of my class mates went on the same state school. I decided to go to an amazing city to live on my own and go to a school with unconventional ways of learning. Also, choose a school that offers a great college experience with student activities and school organizations such as student run radio stations, newspapers, ensambles, work study, ect. Most importantly, GET INVOLVED. Get out there and start your experience while you're still learning. You might even make some money while doing what you love.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

try and plan a trip to the school, and one not through the school just alk around and ask questions, meet people. get to know the culture not created by the tours the school gives you, but from you experiencing the culture the school offers yourself.

What's unique about your campus?

the intemacy of the school. OI get to meet and see people on a daily bases. it's not to big where i meet new people everyday but not to small where I see the same people everyday.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

the lack of 24 hour open places for students to hangout or study at any time, rather than specific set times.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Diversity, Nightlife, Culture, a place where you can go out every night of the week so you must be focused on your work during the day so you can party at night.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do your research, talk to students besides the tour guide. Dont choose a school because your friends will be there. You will make new friends I promise. Once in college get involved, your activities are not drinking beer and watching football join a club, fraternity or intramural team. If you are passionate about a club or activity and your school does not have it start it. It is worth the effort. Have fun, but get your work done, you or someone is dishing out a large heap of money to help you suceed, dont let it go to waste. STUDY ABROAD!!!! It was the best time of my life and opened my eyes to so many things, and now i can speak and understand spanish. Lastly enjoy every minute of college because one day it will all be over.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

So you need to find the right college!? Well, here are a some things to think about. First, you want to research, and most definitely talk to alumni. Students just get too excited The fact of the matter is that only an alum will tell you the truth about the school. They've already paid for their education, and are living proof of how useful the knowledge they have attained is in their field of work. Truthfully, I talked to an alumni of my major once, and she said she felt slightly unprepared on her first day of teaching. Loyola is constantly bringing back alumni for that reason. They are always striving to improve their programs. Also, if you have hobbies outside of school, look into those sorts of things . For example, if you love to exercise, "Are there aerobics classes at the university?" "Is there even a gym?" Say I loved music, ( ;] ) I would do some research on guest performances, conductors, and even the venues in town. Is it far from home? Some students can't take the distance., and it's a very sensitive subject. Finally, you should ask yourself one question. Do you have what it takes? ;)

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known just how much I was going to like it. I had been told by my mentor that it was the best place to go for my major, but that didn't begin to describe how it really was. She told me about the dorms, and about the music program. I had no idea that there was so much to do in New Orleans. There are concerts almost every night, talented artists coming to play at the university, and so many environmental projects to take a part in. It's so hard to pick and choose.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag about the community. We are such a diverse group of students, professors, and people in the community. Here at the university, people are involved in so much community service, sports, and special projects related to their fields. As a Music Ed major, there are programs that go out to schools in need and assist teachers! There's just so much out here for every major. Everyone here really loves calling Loyola home. We evacuated recently, and it's so uplifting how much people worked together, and came right back to the school they love.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

No matter what your parents tell you, not matter how much it?s been drilled into you head that good grade and lots of extracurriculars will make you successful; it's not true. I?ve learned more about life and less about everything else in the time I?ve been here then all of my previous years. And what I take away from the experience is a network of friends closer to me than family, guys that I can rely on like brothers, and girls that have taught me that there?s more to relationships than.... well hopefully you get the picture. I'm a better person for being here; I'm currently in the Middle East on an internship making more money that most guys 10 years out of law school. Life is a series of decisions that happen to lead to a favorable conclusion, at least for me, don't let anyone else beside yourself make that decision for you.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You'll never remember class time, but you'll remember the time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So stay out late. Go out with your friends on a Tuesday when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend money you don't have. Drink till sunrise. The work never ends, but college does.
