Loyola University Maryland

Once a college and now a university, Loyola Maryland is located in a residential section of Baltimore known as Roland Park, miles from the infamous parts of "Charm City" that led to TV shows such as "The Wire" and "Homicide: Life on the Street." Dedicated to the Jesuit values of learning, caring and serving, Loyola has strong programs in business, education, and the arts and sciences. The campus has academic, administrative and dining facilities on one side, with highly-thought-of residential options across a pedestrian bridge over a busy avenue. Technically urban, Loyola feels safely suburban.

Reviews

Grades are more important than standardized test scores in the admissions process.

The Princeton Review

Loyola University Maryland says

When Jesuit priests founded Loyola in 1852, they looked to the very heart of their order for inspiration in choosing a name. They found their inspiration in St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus, and that's how Loyola--our Loyola--became the first institution of higher education in the United States to bear his name. To this day, we remain committed to the ideals embodied by the priests of the Society of Jesus throughout its rich history. Those Jesuit ideals include an emphasis on academic excellence, the importance of the liberal arts, and cura personalis--the education of the whole person. We strive to live up to the ideals set by St. Ignatius, and know they are integral to what Loyola has become. A CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY WITH A MISSION

Loyola University Maryland is a Jesuit, Catholic university committed to the educational and spiritual traditions of the Society of Jesus and the development of the whole person. Accordingly, the University inspires students to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world.

At Loyola, this means that the curriculum is rigorous and faculty expectations are high. In addition to academic coursework, the Jesuit mission is carried out through a variety of programs and events sponsored by various University departments, including Campus Ministry and the Center for Community Service and Justice. Loyola aims to lead students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends forward to pursue an examined life of intellectual, social, and spiritual discernment. In pursuing these goals, Loyola asserts a bold vision: that Loyola University Maryland will be the nation's leading Catholic, comprehensive university. The standards by which we measure that achievement include the enrollment of outstanding students; the creation of a diverse and supportive community; the cultivation of a rigorous intellectual climate which distinctly prepares graduates to succeed in any endeavor they choose to pursue; the scholarly achievements of the faculty; the recognition of academic peers; the intellectual and professional attainments and generosity of spirit of the alumni.
