    Administration & Policies: The guidance department at Loyola is really strong. We are required to see our councillors twice a week in a classroom setting, and so when they write letters of recommendation for us, they actually know us very well. In this class with the councillors, we usually cover topics like mental health, bullying and college. Attendance and tardy JUGs usually depend on the teacher.

    Extracurriculars: There is a lot of focus on the athletic department at Loyola, and so joining clubs isn't as popular or encouraged. From what I've seen, the cultural clubs usually get the most attention, and a lot of the other clubs I've never even heard of.

    Overall Experience: I love Loyola, and highly recommend it to anyone. Only thing to consider is the lack of diversity at Loyola. But it's a private, Jesuit school in a mostly white, Irish Catholic neighborhood so keep that in mind.

    Teachers: Love my teachers. Only thing is that I wish they would be more approachable because sometimes I cannot find them for help.

    Resources & Facilities: We need a new auditorium! It's currently tiny/non-existent. The building is either too hot or two cold but that is a sign that it works well. Guidance counselors are always there to help.
