The Loyola Distinction

Gives new meaning to thinking globally, acting locally.

At Loyola University New Orleans, education goes beyond the physical walls of a classroom and lectures. That’s why we say the world is our classroom—we offer a myriad of unique opportunities that allow you to learn and thrive both in New Orleans and around the globe.

The hallmark of a Loyola education can be summed up in a simple phrase: We produce citizens of the world.

Our centers and institutes for everything from environmental and nonprofit communications to the Loyola Institute for Ministry offer you the chance to learn in a hands-on environment. Volunteer through the Loyola University Community Action Program and learn through giving back. Or, study abroad to immerse yourself in a culture different from your own.

  • A Loyola education encompasses a rich Jesuit tradition of educating the whole person - mind, body, and spirit.
  • Loyola seeks to prepare its students to be active participants on the global stage.
  • Rather than simply teaching our future graduates what to think, we teach them how to think.

These critical distinctions are at the very heart of what it means to receive a Jesuit education at Loyola.
