Loyola is part of the Jesuit educational network, one of the largest systems in American higher education.

The opportunities for community service and other completely unique experiences cannot be duplicated at any national institution of higher learning.

Students Say

A private, Jesuit liberal arts college in the heart of the Big Easy, Loyola University New Orleans is "a spicy bowl of gumbo you didn't expect." Home to "every type of student you can imagine," Loyola's student body is " is as diverse as the city around it. People from all walks of life come here to learn and become. There is no such thing as an outsider." Students praise the school's art and music departments, which both draw on New Orleans's rich culture, but the business program is also strong. The "small student body [and] small class sizes" help foster the notion that Loyola is a "home away from home that shapes individuals for the real world." The principle of "making the world a better place for yourself by making it a better place for others" is a bedrock of the university and Loyola "[prizes] inclusivity and the pursuit of excellence in education keeping in mind Jesuit values such as compassion, volunteering, and giving back to the local community." Professors are " insightful, helpful, and concerned about student success," and "academics are [set up] to challenge you but aren't setting you up for failure. Everyone around you wants you to succeed."

Students Say

Loyola students describe the rest of their "Wolf Pack" as "wildly diverse—and 'wildly' with a positive connotation." With this in mind, "You are comfortable to be yourself at Loyola because no one is concerned with fitting in." The school aims to give students, as one current undergrad puts it, a "holistic education to become a well-rounded, open-minded, inclusive leader in life." The diversity of the student body and the range of expression is one of the reasons that Loyola is "interesting to attend." Despite its focus on inclusivity, some say that, "As a commuter, I feel as though no matter how much the Commuter Student Association tries, reaching out for commuters to be included in events is difficult." Overall, students see themselves as "vibrant, compassionate, and colorful people," and their community as full of "diverse individuals who come together in times of joy and sorrow to celebrate each other and to support each other."

Students Say

Despite a small student body, Loyola is "an incredibly diverse community where people are able to openly discuss ideas and opinions." Students say that Loyola is "a place made for students to stand out." Location is everything: "There's always something going on in New Orleans, whether it's a music or food festival or even Mardi Gras season." (Students are thrilled to get the whole Mardi Gras week off from class.) Students explore nearby Magazine Street or "walk in Audubon [Park], which is across the street from school." Since "New Orleans is a lively city," students say "there is always something to do." Taking a cue from the city around it, Loyola's focus on art and music is strong and "the city and the university in tandem promote a spirit of creativity in problemsolving, social interaction, and expression." Outside of campus, "The nightlife is great for any personality type. If you don't like club scenes, you can go to City Park and enjoy Morning Call under the night sky."

College Entrance Tests Required

Interview Required

Documentation Required for LD

Students must provide documentation from a professional who has undergone comprehensive training and has relevant experience with conducting psycho-educational assessments with adolescents or adults (e.g., clinical or educational psychologists, school psychologists, neuropsychologists, learning disabilities specialists). Documentation for students requesting accommodations on the basis of a learning disability must include, but is not limited to: •Pertinent background information, including a description of the presenting problem(s); any significant developmental, medical, psychosocial and employment histories; and family history. •A complete assessment of intellectual functioning/aptitude, preferably, but not limited to the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-III (WAIS-III) with standard and scaled scores, including subtest scores. •A comprehensive academic achievement battery that measures current levels of functioning in reading (decoding and comprehension), mathematics and oral and written language. •An assessment of specific areas of information processing (e.g., short- and long-term memory, sequential memory, sequential and simultaneous processing, auditory and visual perception/processing, processing speed, working memory, motor ability). •A diagnosis of a specific learning disability. •An indication of how patterns in the student's cognitive ability, achievement and information processing indicate the presence of a learning disability. •An integrated summary that indicates the substantial limitations to major life activities (e.g., learning, reading, thinking) posed by the specified learning disability; describes the extent to which these limitations impact the academic context for which accommodations are being requested; suggests how the specific effects of the learning disability may be accommodated; and states how the effects of the learning disability are mediated by the recommended accommodations.

Documentation Required for ADHD

Students must provide documentation by a professional who has undergone comprehensive training and has relevant experience in differential diagnosis and the full range of psychiatric disorders (e.g., psychologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and other relevantly trained medical doctors). Documentation must include but not be limited to: •Evidence of early impairment. The condition must have been exhibited in childhood in more than one setting. •Evidence of current impairment. A history of the individual's presenting attentional symptoms and evidence of current impulsive/hyperactive or inattentive behaviors that significantly impair functioning in two or more settings must be provided. •An interview. The interview must contain self-report and third-party information pertaining to: any significant developmental history; family history of ADHD or other educational, learning, physical or psychological difficulties; relevant medical and medication history; a thorough academic history; and a review of prior psychoeducational test reports to determine whether a pattern of strengths or weaknesses is supportive of attention or learning problems. •Descriptions of current functional limitations pertaining to an educational setting that are presumably a direct result of problems with attention. •Evidence of alternative diagnoses or explanations that have been ruled out. The documentation must investigate and discuss the possibility of alternative or co-morbid mood, behavioral, neurological, learning and/or personality disorders that may confound the ADHD diagnosis. •A discussion of the neuropsychological or psychoeducational assessments administered to determine the current impact of the disorder on the individual's ability to function in an academic setting. •A specific psychiatric diagnosis as per the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-IV TR (DSM-IVTR) of the American Psychiatric Association (2000). Symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity which were present in childhood and the current symptoms which have been present for at least the past six months and which impair functioning in two or more settings (e.g., school, work, and home) must also be identified. •An integrated summary that indicates the substantial limitations to major life activities posed by the disability, describes the extent to which these limitations would impact the academic context for which accommodations are being requested, suggests how the specific effects of the disability may be accommodated, and states how the effects of ADHD are mediated by the recommended accommodations.
