As a recent graduate, I can firmly say that Loyola is where I became the person I wanted to be. It was through my Jesuit education at Loyola that I realized the importance of appreciating the pursuit of excellence, of learning from experience, of thinking critically and communicating effectively, and most importantly, of finding God in all things.
In the four years you will spend at Loyola, you will come across individuals from all over the nation and all over the world, giving rise to class discussion that is diverse, communal, and global. The community is all the more welcoming and supportive of everyone’s endeavors, and the professors and students are passionate about what they do, which I believe is the driving force of this campus. Whether your passion involves studying the biodiversity of the wetlands or studying the effects of magical realism in modern day writing, Loyola looks to accompany you in your own personal journey of finding out who you are.
I believe Loyola embodies what New Orleans represents: acceptance, warmth, inclusiveness, diversity, and opportunity.
My best advice is to visit our campus, and speak to our students and professors. Speak to them about your goals and your passions and you will just as easily find them speaking to you about their own. Everyone has a story and I believe Loyola places emphasis on each and every student’s story. As an admissions counselor, there is nothing more rewarding than playing a small part in having Loyola become a part of that story.
So, visit our campus and our city! Trust me, both Loyola and New Orleans are an easy place to fall in love with and call home.
