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

definitely the professors. the professors at Loyola are not only top notch in their fields, they also actually interact with students beyond just he classroom. Harvard and Oxford are just some of the places your professors are educated from while at Loyola.

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

Find a place you love first. Go look at cities around your university and decide whether or not you like the city. Better yet, think of a city you love and look there for schools. This may even be your hometown! If you find yourself in a place that you love, it will be much easier to deal with the transition from home to a new place. Look at the places you'll be living, as often a bad living environment result in unnessecary stress and sometimes depression. Little things that are often overlooked can make your college experience worse than it should be, so make sure to pay attention to the often overlooked things.

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

-pictures of dorms, they're VERY bad for the most part, but they don't have pictures up on the website and it almost felt like they were trying to hide the situation of the dorms form the students -location of the school in location to larger stores (ie- grocery stores, malls, wal-mart). It's pretty far away to go, but you have to if you want basic groceries and the gas in New Orleans is expensive. There is a whole foods down the road, but those prices tend to be rather outrageous.

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

When searchin for a college don't be afraid to just apply to different places. You'll never know what financial aid they'll give. Tour all colleges and try to understand which environment feels right to you. Take into consideration all of the services a college offers because it tells you a lot about the college. Talk to students to attend the college to get a true insider's view. When in college, keep your priorities straight. Know how to balance yours classes. Don't be afraid to drop a class if you feel your load is too heavy. Have fun while you can because college only comes once in your life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who wants to get lost in people. You see the same people over and over again.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

This school is very family like. The campus and environment makes it feel like a second home and the professors and staff make that feeling even stronger. Everyone is very welcoming and involved. It is the perfect size for me and gives me the opportunity to really get to know the people and professors at my school.

Describe the students at your school.

They are very down to earth and welcoming people. They are always willing to help.

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

I would tell them to choose the college that offers them what they need. Not only in a educational sense, but also in character. Some schools offer the best academics and resources available, however they lack in character building. The right college is one in which you can feel as though your home and pursuing a dream rather than fulfilling a requirement. I chose my college, because it did offer what i wanted to study, but it also offered opportunities to help me achieve my dreams and become a more well rounded adult. This college has already helped me discover more about myself and the world around me in a single year. College isn't just another stepping stone to get to your future. I strongly believe that these are the times that shape us the most. Therefore, the best advice i could ever give is to choose the college that offers your dreams. Do not hesitate on your decision based on finance, distance or any other obstacles. Choose the best experience. The college that helps you earn the degrees you need to land the career you dreamed of and one that also helps you become confident in you.

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

FInding the right college is one of the most difficult choices for a student, however it is the student's decision in the end, and the parents shoudl support their child's decision no matter what. Having a parent chose a college for a student will cause problems and only bring a family a part in the event that something wrong happens. Parent's must trust their children as part of being in college is growing up. I suggest living on campus for at least a year to allow a student to grow and learn responsibility. Also, if a student does not like big colleges, then a major university would not be the best option because it is easier to get lost in the crowd. Personally I find classes with 20 students is the perfect size because teachers can focus on all of the students on an indiviidual basis.

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

I wish I would have known that it was not very easy so that I could better prepare myself. However, it has been a great experience and wish that more students would give it a chance because it is a private liberal school. Many people would have expected it to be a little more conservative since it is a Jesuit school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Although Loyola offers a few sports, not all of the major sports are offered. Therefore if you are looking to play Division 1 sports such as basketball, football and volleyball, Loyola is not the place for you. Loyola is focused on the everyday common person in my opinion and offers a variety of things that are fun and exciting. WE have an amazing Music program and intra-mural sports for those looking to just have fun.
