Student Testimonials
Ryan Bahry
Graduation Year:2007

I was initially drawn to Loyola University New Orleans because of the unique culture and atmosphere of the city, and the excitement of attending school in a city completely different from where I grew up. When I visited Loyola, I really enjoyed the small campus and sensed the close community that existed within. In the end, I made my decision to attend Loyola as a result of the small campus feel coupled with the diversity and excitement of the city.

Major:Chemistry Pre-Med

I wanted to go to a Jesuit school. I'm having a lot of fun here. I have good classes and I love being around the people here. Even after being here for just a few weeks before Katrina, I knew that I couldn't go anywhere else. The Jesuit traditions are alive on campus. They encourage helping out in the community through service projects like rebuilding houses.

Marley Dzis
Graduation Year:2008
Major:Music Education and Music Therapy (vocal performance)

The reason why I came to Loyola was because I knew my interests to be involved and to make a difference would be appreciated and maintained. I also knew the social justice ideal would be upheld in all areas of study, even music. My experience at Loyola so far has been amazing. I have felt like an integral part of a mission. I have been inspired. All of my best qualities have not only been brought out, but have also flourished.

Loyola's location, business program and the Jesuit values of the institution are all important to me. Loyola has become a second home to me, though my real home is only a few hours away. Loyola has several student organizations that cater to different ethnicities and interests. These organizations also work to educate and involve the community in their events.
