Only 13 Days Left!

November 18th, 2014

  13 days or 312 hours or 18,720 minutes or 1,123,200 seconds… until our priority deadline: December 1st! That means you better request your transcripts, test scores (ACT or SAT), and letters of recommendation right away so schools, counselors, teachers, and testing agencies have time to send it all over to Loyola before our postmark deadline. Also make […]

Why I Chose Loyola

Why I Chose Loyola

October 13th, 2014

To begin, it is important that I tell you this: The first time I ever set foot on Loyola’s campus was on move-in day, exactly one week before classes and the start of a years-long college career. Many may gasp at my apparent lack of self-preservation—others, guffaw such an inexplicable act—wondering how I could have […]

October 13th, 2014

Blog 3—Why did I choose Loyola?
