“Wake Up The World!” - St. Ignatius Loyola

Loyola University draws from our famous New Orleans location and our vibrantly intellectual Jesuit tradition to give you a college experience that can’t be matched anywhere else in the world.

As you discover your strengths and talents, a Loyola education challenges you to develop both your head, and your heart so that you can make the world a better place.

A Message from the President of Loyola University New Orleans.

As an institution of higher education, one specifically committed to the Catholic and Jesuit tradition of living as women and men for and with others, Loyola University New Orleans stands in solidarity with students who exercise their freedom of expression and participate in peaceful protests against gun violence or any other matters of conscience. We join colleges and universities across the United States with our commitment to not penalize any applicant or admitted students who are disciplined by their high school for acts of peaceful, lawful protest and activism.

Alumni and student Successes

Emily Ramírez Hernández ’09

Emily Ramírez Hernández is the program coordinator for the New Orleans Citizen Diplomacy Council.

How She Got There: She majored in Latin American studies; became interested in the social issues introduced in her anthropology, history, and religious studies classes; studied abroad in Mexico City and Viña del Mar, Chile; came home to make a difference.

Today, I interact with people at my job from Ghana, Colombia, Russia, Tuvalu, Pakistan, Indonesia, Zimbabwe, Bulgaria, Afghanistan, and essentially every nation with which the U.S. government has a diplomatic relationship, and what I learned at Loyola allows me to have a better understanding of our global neighbors.

Shaawn Ali, '08

Dr. Shaawn Ali '08 is chief resident at a Miami hospital, finishing up medical school and a program that had him traveling around the Middle East practicing medicine.

How He Got There: He wanted to be involved in the local health care system, majored in pre-med psychology, conceived and conducted a study on campus with his faculty mentor, won first place overall in the social sciences category at the Louisiana Academy of Sciences, turned down an offer for a full-time position with the Saints to focus on his studies in medicine.

In an age of globalization and multiculturalism, I feel Loyola was able to give me a head start in meeting and learning about people from various backgrounds and beliefs. I feel this exposure has allowed me to relate better with people I come across on a daily basis in my medical practice.
