Loyola is a great school if your into partying and doing well in school. If your not into one then your going to have a hard time. The business school is not the best but their music program is fantastic. The internet in New Orleans is bad and it is even worse on campus. Expect to lose internet weekly if not daily. Public transportation is completely unreliable in the town, but the roads are almost worse with pot holes everywhere. Would recommend living off campus as the living situation is a lot better. There are many housing options within walking distance so suffering on campus is not worth it in my opinion. Most of the teachers really care about their students. I love the school but wish that kids partied a little less

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

Loyola is unique because as stated in the previous answer, it offers so many opportunities for students to "plug-in" on campus. There is an organization for everybody and if your interests aren't represented, you can start your own organization very easily. Students on this campus come from very diverse socio-economic, religious, ethnic, and racial backgrounds. This creates somewhat of a melting pot and a campus that represents what the world is actually like.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If someone is closed-minded, intolerant, and solely focused on academics, they should not attend Loyola University New Orleans. Loyola is a very open-minded and liberal school, with a high tolerance for diversity and differing-opinions. The philosophy at Loyola is centered around Ignatian values, focusing on building a "well-rounded" individual, so someone who isn't interested in involving themseleves in service, extra-curricular activities, etc. should not attend here.

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

I would tell myself to focus on critical thinking skills and prepare myself to be ready for lots of writing.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Loyola is an accepting, vibrant and diverse campus, highly reflective of the culture of New Orleans and focused on enabling students to discover and improve themselves while completing their education.

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

Take this last year of high school slowly. After high school, your world flips upside down and you can never go back to the routinely comfort of high school. Take advantage of the relationships you formed with your teachers and friends; learn life lessons, not only school lessons from your teachers, as they have already completed college and have valuable advice. It is okay if your plan does not work out; they rarely do. That does not mean that you will not achieve your dreams, you just have to get a little bit more creative and pursue them from a different path. Keep your options open. College is much more about exploring yourself and your relationships with other people and the world than it is about making your career. Be open-minded and willing to accept random and new opportunities.

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

The school is extremely expensive; it seems ridiculous that anyone would pay $43,000+ for a year's worth of learning.

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

Enjoy it enjoy it enjoy it! Make sure you stay on top of your school work because it will catch up with you, but enjoy it. Get as much financial assistance as you can especially if your family does not have much to contribute. You do not want to end up in mountains of debt. Really look at what major is going to get you a job or jump-start towards a career. Because in the end, this is preparation to work and survive in the real world.

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

Stay in the financial aid staff's face. The school is very costly and you do not want to end up in to deep. The course load is not going to be unbelievable hard but you will have to work. Socially youll find you group of friends usually within your major. If you're really into sports this is not the school for you. Fraternities and sororities are a big deal however.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would come prepared with a bucket of water and scream, "Pay Attention!” I entered High School as a straight-A student and by the time my senior year rolled around, I was barely able to graduate. My high school days were spent doodling on my notepad, text messaging under my sweater and keeping up to date with all of the latest drama that roamed the halls. I somehow managed to sit in a desk for four years and learn close to nothing. As soon as I entered college, reality hit. I felt four years behind everyone else. I was missing the building blocks to my education and couldn’t pass even the simplest of classes. Now, five years later, I am a straight A-student but I cannot even begin to express how hard it has been to play catch up. As a high school senior, I wish I had understood that people and drama will come and go in life, but your education, or lack of, will stay with you forever.

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

It gets better. But, as it gets better, it also gets harder. The more you learn, the more problems you discover. The more problems, the less you feel capable of making a difference. Don't let this cheat you out of becoming the strong-willed, compassionate person you want to be. Allow your professors to inspire you, your peers to challenge you, your coursework to expand your worldview. Get involved in the rebuilding of New Orleans, dedicate your free time to serving the greater good instead of yourself. Read outside of the classroom, ask questions when you don't understand something. Don't waste time with the television or social networking, as these days are passing more quickly than you realize. Be appreciative of the opportunity you have to attend such a great school, as many people don't. Know that it's ok to be unsure of where you are going and that every decision made is an experience. Your first job out of college probably won't be the one that shapes your career, and the economy will get better. It all gets better, even you.

What's unique about your campus?

Loyola focuses on not on educating its students, but transforming them into compassionate adults who value social justice. My professors incoporated Jesuit principles into lessons in every discipline and my peers challenged me to be a better student.

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

The worst thing at Loyola is the availability for financial aid come the sophomore year. Being shocked with a huge tuition bill is very stress-inducing and Loyola needs to do a better job of preparing financial aid packages as well as scholarship opportunities for those who need it the most.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Loyola is not for someone who is scared of being vulnerable. It takes a lot of courage to venture out into the crazy city of New Orleans and being a college student at Loyola, you have to be able to want to explore the city and create opportunities wherever possible. Someone who is narrow-minded or ignorant towards all humans having rights should also refrain from this school. It has a very open and liberal atmosphere to it and someone who is uncomfortable with that should not disturb the peace and tranquility established here.

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

If I could give my highschool self advice it would be this: Concentrate on the basics. I would tell myself to do more independent studying instead of relying on just what my teachers tell me. I would also have done alot more volunteer work and tried to join more clubs and make friends with lots of types of people. I've discovered that in college you really do have to buckle down and study. In highschool you can get by doing a minimum amount of work but in college you really need to spend a couple of hours a day studying. I would tell myself to not be so nervous, work hard and look forward for the great things to come in college.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the price it cost to attend.
