About Loyola University Maryland

Loyola University Maryland’s time-tested, distinctly taught Jesuit approach to education allows students to master the tools and develop the traits needed to learn, lead, and serve in our diverse and ever-changing world. Loyola is everything Jesuit education should be: rigorous, values oriented, communal, and spiritually uplifting. Your experiences here will be some of the most transformative of your life—and some of the most rewarding. They will help you become even more than you knew you could be: more knowledgeable, capable, confident, and committed to changing lives—others’ and your own. You’ll be prepared and eager to face whatever the future holds in your life and career that follow.

With just under 4,000 undergraduates from 40 states, 40+ countries, and six continents, Loyola is big enough to inspire and challenge you, yet small enough to be welcoming, personal, and accessible. Surrounded by people from different backgrounds and with diverse interests, you will be immersed in an experience that is sure to be rich and guaranteed to surprise you. You will feel comfortable taking risks, asking bold questions, and trying new things. And you will forge deep, meaningful relationships with your peers, professors, coaches, classmates, and neighbors.

As a Loyola student, you will embrace new perspectives and expand your possibilities, shatter your preconceptions, find your joy, and divine your truths. So that when you graduate, you’ll be ready: Ready to meet the complex demands of today—and to anticipate and adapt to the needs of tomorrow. Ready to forge a career that’s true to who you are. Ready to build a life you love and create the world you imagine. More than ready. Loyola ready.
