So far, I have fallen in love with my school, Loyola Chicago. The campus is beautiful and everyone I have met is so nice and fun to be around. I love being in the city of Chicago and attending Loyola was the best decision I have made.

Loyola Chicago’s main campus is on Lake Michigan, eight miles north of downtown.

The schoolwork is interesting and the clubs offered are interesting as well! I love going to the Loyola basketball games and cheering for my school! I couldn’t be happier.

I am an Elementary Education Major and I am taking some of those classes right now! I love how at Loyola, I am already able to observe real classrooms and get a better understanding of how to be a teacher.

My dorm room

I am in the school’s “worst” dorm, however, being in this dorm has created an amazing community. Some of my best friends are in my dorm, and it is so nice to be able to go to their room and just hang out and talk.
