Athletics and Recreation

Watching or playing: It's easy to be an active Rambler

Stay active, enjoy friendly competition, and get involved in the community. At Loyola, there's no shortage of opportunities to get moving on our campuses. We've got Division I teams, intramural sports, playing fields, a rock-climbing wall, ropes courses, dance studios, an 18-mile lakefront running and biking trail, and lots of water sports thanks to Lake Michigan. We also have plenty of other activities if you prefer cheering from the sidelines.

Rambler Athletics

Don't miss your chance to enjoy the excitement of Division I sports, featuring true "student-athletes" with a graduation rate ranking near the nation's best. The Rambler Rowdies gives students a chance to support Men's Basketball and cheer alongside a few thousand of their closest friends. It's another great way to have fun while getting involved with student life at Loyola.

Dr. Jennifer Zitzner made my time in the classroom productive, engaging, and fun. She made a huge impact on me.
