As a senior, I think I know Loyola pretty well. It doesn't a good job with academics, though many students struggle greatly with the workload. It's an expensive school, but the rigor prepares students for college. Some teachers and administrators are strict about unimportant rules (mainly concerning dress code), but it is mainly to maintain the dignified school appearance. As a Jesuit school, there's is a big focus on reflection and God, but many people of other beliefs thrive there too.

Overall, Loyola has taught me to be a women for others and to appreciate what I have. Through many highly encouraged service programs, I've pushed myself to step outside of my comfort zone and to step into others shoes. I definitely would choose this school because I not only learn more about myself but I learn about those who aren't usually represented in the real world.
