Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Loyola is a great school with very helpful faculty and administration. I like that we are not located directly in the city because it makes the cost of living a lot cheaper. We are also still able to have a great social life but the financial aid for the medical school could be better.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The faculty is amazing and really works with the students to help them succeed. I am looking for scholarships, as Loyola University Chicago is a private school and is very expensive.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I started off in a different graduate program and then transfer into Loyola's Higher Education Program. I love this program, the faculty, staff, and the student body have been very supportive. Students are not just only students in this program, but they are seen as equals to the administration and as potential coworkers or faculty. The only downside to this program is the cost. Loyola is a private institution and does not offer enough grants or scholarships for graduate students.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Loyola University Chicago embodies the character, goals and values I strive to live for in my everyday life. My graduate program strengthens and challenges every aspect needed in my field to succeed. One of the most beneficial elements in my program is studying in Chicago, amongst some of the world's most competitive universities and business professionals. Loyola University Chicago stands out because the professors actually believe in me. Before I began taking classes, I accepted a job working on campus assisting the chairman of my department. Through this opportunity, I got a chance to meet professors, share my career ideas, and fully realize that this school wholeheartedly endorses who I am, but more importantly, who I want to be.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Loyola University Chicago is a very interesting alternative for graduate school in Social Work. This school has several specialization opportunities, networking events, and high quality training. I experienced some issued with financial aid, but not I've heard good references from other peers. I'm very happy and satisfied with the program. I definitely will recommend for others to attend this school. Loyola University has an extensive experience in high education and promotes professionalism and competence in all of the students to better serve our community.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Loyola University Chicago has a great Social Work program, that is specifically geared to engaging future clinicians. The program is excellent for those students interested in clinical or direct practice, by strongly focusing on clinical theories, therapeutic techniques and field placements. However, if a student has an interest in research, community organizing, or administration, this may not be the appropriate school for them. While our LDSS track is attempting to provide administration knowledge, the strength of the school still lies within the clinical sphere.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I am in my first year in the Social Work graduate program at Loyola University in Chicago. So far, I feel that Loyola provides challenging courses, passionate professors, and a great location (in the heart of downtown Chicago). I am very happy with my decision to attend Loyola and I look forward to the next two years!

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of this program is that it allows you to be educated by exceptional legal professors. The program is sound and relevant. Th cons for me are related to the online classroom environment. The technology is sluggish but it's getting much better. The collaboration between classmates and the EIW weekends help to connect our cohort. I am receiving a quality education and am proud to be apart of the LUC family.
