From the School

Want to impact the world? At Loyola University New Orleans, our students are encouraged to think creatively and build the foundation for a meaningful life of leadership and service. Loyola offers a premium college experience focused on developing the whole person. By asking deep questions that inspire insight, our students learn to combine reflection and action: thinking about what is just and discovering ways to use their talents to improve the world. From Loyola's Uptown location, our students head out into New Orleans to apply what they have learned, help others, and shape the city itself. We provide our students internships that enable them to acquire the real-world experience and competitive edge that employers seek as they become part of a global network of Jesuit universities and more than 1 million alumni.

Our scholarships and financial aid make Loyola University New Orleans affordable. Approximately 90 percent of our students receive some sort of financial aid. Our mix of institutional merit-based awards and need-based aid keeps Loyola affordable for families of all income levels. Scholarships range from $5,000 to full tuition annually. When you apply for admission, you'll automatically be considered for 450-plus academic and talent-based scholarships.

Founded in 1912, Loyola University New Orleans is a private, Catholic, Jesuit university that serves more than 3,800 undergraduate, graduate, professional, and continuing education students. Loyola's 22-acre main campus is located in the heart of the picturesque Uptown neighborhood of New Orleans, known for the iconic St. Charles Avenue streetcar, graceful Southern mansions and century-old oak trees. Historic Audubon Park provides another 300 acres of green space as well as the Audubon Zoo and many amenities, including: riding stables, tennis courts, a golf course and clubhouse, jogging trails, lagoons, baseball fields, and soccer fields for students to enjoy.

New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest and most culturally diverse cities but also one of the most innovative and vibrant. Heralded as a top city for entrepreneurs and creative professionals, New Orleans has a buzzing tech and art scene. The famous French Quarter and Downtown area, where jazz was born and lives on, is a breezy streetcar ride away. On campus, there are palm trees and an average of 216 days of sunshine, making New Orleans a paradise city. With 21 James Beard Award-winning chefs and more than 1400 restaurants, dining out in New Orleans is truly an experience like no other. And with 65 festivals a year, there is always something new and different to experience.

Special Programs

Loyola University New Orleans is the largest Jesuit university in the southern United States and has recently twice been named among "Top Producers of Fulbright Students and Scholars in the U.S." by the U.S. State Department. A longstanding leader in volunteerism, social justice, and community engagement efforts, Loyola is a 2017 Top Producer of Peace Corps Volunteers, as well as a 2017 Top Producer of Teach for America Volunteers, and is consistently recognized by the U.S. President's Higher Education Honor Roll for Community Service, a federal recognition for service learning, community service, and civic engagement.

Loyola has also been consistently recognized for its excellence in diversity and inclusiveness, Loyola has recently been ranked by The Princeton Review among the nation's Top 20 most culturally inclusive universities, and placed second in the nation in 2015. Made up of five colleges – the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Music and Fine Arts, the College of Business, the College of Law, and College of Nursing and Health – the university enjoys more than 10 endowed chairs, in fields ranging from environmental biology to music industry studies.

Loyola has the only College of Music and Fine Arts (CMFA) among the 28 Jesuit universities in the U.S. Located within the CMFA, Loyola's School of Music is a conservatory in which professional musicians are trained in a rich academic environment and where students can roam the halls and learn from Grammy Award winners and internationally renowned musicians. The CMFA also includes Loyola's acclaimed Film and Music Industry Studies department, which prepares aspiring musicians, singers, performers, directors, producers, and crafts and industry executives for entrepreneurial success in the creative professions. Also within CMFA is the award-winning School of Mass Communication, which won a record 93 awards during the 2014-2015 academic year, including a national Pacemaker Award from the Associated College Press, often referred to as "the Pulitzer Prize for college journalism." Loyola is the also the first Jesuit institution with a School of Mass Communication to hold accreditations from The Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications and the Certification in Education for Public Relations. Twice in the last three years, Loyola's 95-year-old student newspaper, The Maroon, has been named among the "Top 5 College Newspapers in the U.S." by The Princeton Review. CMFA also includes Studio Arts and the only undergraduate design degree program in New Orleans.

Within the university's largest college, the College of Arts and Sciences, Loyola has recently made new forays into STEM studies and participated for the first time in Louisiana's Biomedical Research Summit. In Loyola's newly renovated Monroe Hall, students perform undergraduate scientific research working side-by-side with professional researchers in state-of-the-art laboratories exploring topics from limb regeneration to Chagas Disease and biodiversity among spider species. The computer science department has added new degree programs, including one with a gaming track. Other new programs within CAS include: Food Policy, Culture, and Commerce Studies; Biophysics/Pre-Health; and a new Certificate in Translating and Interpreting for language majors. Loyola is the only college in the country to offer a degree in Forensic Chemistry.

Loyola's nationally ranked and internationally accredited Joseph A. Butt, S.J., College of Business Administration features an executive portfolio program and provides experiential internships with local and national companies. Considered one of the nation's "Best Business Schools" by The Princeton Review, the college has forged a partnership with NASA's Stennis Space Center and launched the Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Development, a hub for entrepreneurial activity across campus and a vital link to the New Orleans entrepreneurial community. Loyola undergraduates can also achieve further professional development through a "fast-track" or traditional MBA.

Through externships and practical experience working with Loyola's Law Clinic, Incubator Program, and Gillis Long Poverty Law Center, Loyola law students thrive as "practicing professionals," gaining valuable career experience in their fields well before graduation. Many go on to national and international positions – or help to lead the local legal fields.

And Loyola's School of Nursing within the College of Nursing and Health, continues to educate nursing and health care professionals around the nation through its award-winning online education programs, available at the bachelor's, master's and doctorate levels.

In keeping with the Jesuit belief of cura personalis, or "education and care of the whole person," Loyola students grow and learn through a robust student affairs program, 130 student organizations, study abroad programs in more than 50 countries, a vibrant campus ministry, social justice action programs, the Ignacio Volunteers, and a thriving 40-year-old Loyola University Community Action Program.

Loyola's athletics program boasts 18 NAIA teams and more than 200 student-athletes, with a goal of growing to more than 300 student-athletes by 2020. In 2017, the NAIA named Loyola a Five-Star Gold-Level Institution.

Residential life, including "theme-based living communities," offers further opportunities for academic growth and student involvement. Campus fun includes crawfish boils, concerts, and special events such as "Sneaux," a winter celebration that blankets Loyola's lawn for community fun.

Students Say

Loyola University New Orleans is a prominent Catholic university located in the heart of one of the country’s most dynamic cities. Students love its “small size” which translates into “a lot of one-on-one attention.” For example, as one Loyola undergrad elaborates, “Personal attention from mentors in the business school help us prepare for MBA[s] and the [future] job [market alike]. Everyone has a success coach, so no question goes unanswered.” Many students are also attracted to Loyola for its amazing “music industry program” as well. Fortunately, no matter what you choose to study, there are “opportunities in every [discipline] to work...with professors and older students who…[conduct] research in your field [starting] from your freshman semester.” Students also love that most classes here tend to be “discussion based.” As another undergrad explains, “While professors will chime in with tidbits of knowledge, their hope is that the students are leading the discussion.” Nevertheless, undergrads find their professors to be “super caring, kind and knowledgeable.” And they are always there to help “whenever we struggle with something in class.” All in all, it’s quite evident that “Loyola cares about its students and is invested in making sure we succeed, are fulfilled, and challenged.”

Students Say

Loyola undergrads all manage to tap into the “great spirit of inclusion” that seemingly permeates this campus. Indeed, students are quick to define their peers as “welcoming” and rather “friendly.” As one grateful undergrad further explains, “I am never afraid to start talking to the person next to me, even if I have never formally met them before.” Many people also love that their classmates are usually “very passionate about social issues and social justice, meaning that we are very open to having dialogue with one another.” And they brag that their friends are “progressive and innovative [and] always looking for a way to improve daily life on campus and around the world.” Loyola students pride themselves on being “artsy” and “alternative” as well. And they celebrate how “unique” and “diverse” their peers truly are. “We all come from different backgrounds, different economic upbringings, different cultures, but yet we all come together at Loyola in unity and harmony. Everyone at Loyola has their own story, and my university gives many chances for us to share them.”

Students Say

There’s no denying that Loyola undergrads “study hard everyday and spend a...sufficient amount of time in the library.” That being said, these kids are also “very social” and join “lots of clubs” and “academic societies.” You can find Loyola students participating in everything from “the Quidditch team” to hitting up “the Rec center for intramural games” or watching “fellow students perform at a local music venue.” Many undergrads also like to head to nearby Audubon Park to “feed...the ducks [or] jog...after class.” Of course, while “campus life is fun,” these students do have the wonderful city of New Orleans as their playground, too. For starters, “you can get on the streetcar and go downtown and hang out in the French Quarter (which is beautiful if you get out of Bourbon St.).” And of course, “during Mardi Gras season, people will go watch parades a lot on the weekends.” Moreover, “there are bars that are within walking distance from campus that are 18+, so partying is a huge aspect of our culture.” However, even if you don’t drink “there is always something to do in this city...whether it is uptown, downtown, mid-city, there is no chance of getting bored.”
