What I like most about Loyola: There is a way to deepen your engagement with anything you care about. As a student, I got to study the environment and grow as a writer through my degrees, but I also got to play in the orchestra, volunteer with high school students, play sports, and more. As a staff member now, I love seeing the way Loyola encourages everyone to explore their passions and become well-rounded people.

The Rome Center was life-changing. The resources like the Student Life Assistants, study trips, and campus made my trip so engaging.
