How well do you know Loyola?

From the moment you step on campus, we make an impression. It might be the lakefront property, nationally ranked degree programs, our Jesuit mission, or our Rogers Park neighbors. But, we are not just that pretty campus. Loyola is downtown in the heart of Chicago, we’re partnering with Trinity Health in Maywood and the suburbs. We even have a campus in Rome, Italy—and our online degree programs bring our expertise and mission to you. Get to know us and our undergraduate, graduate, or adult education programs.

A city behind us

With tens of thousands of alumni in Chicago, our cheering section grew pretty big during the Ramblers' historic run in March Madness (and as the rest of the country got to meet Sister Jean). For our students though, success takes place on and off the court. For the past two years, the NCAA recognized Loyola with a 99 percent Graduation Success Rate, tying us with only Harvard in 2016—and with five other schools in 2017, including Yale, Dartmouth, and (again) Harvard.

We are Chicago’s Jesuit, Catholic University

Our faculty, staff, and students come from all faiths and backgrounds, but together, we strive toward the same goal, being men and women for and with others. But what makes a Jesuit university different? Our students receive an education that stresses the importance of knowledge, curiosity, global perspectives, and cura personalis, which translates to “care for the whole person.”

Our Loyola community isn’t afraid to get its hands dirty cleaning up neighborhood parks and gardens—or use its expertise to mentor girls interested in STEM programs. They research local food deserts and volunteer with our student-run farmers market to make healthy food more accessible. Here, we don't talk about making the world a better place—we get to work.
