About LUC

One of the nation’s largest Jesuit universities, Loyola University Chicago offers a number of rigorous, high-quality academic programs in a small college learning environment.

While Loyola University boasts over 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students, the low student to teacher ratio allows students to have the personalized experience of a smaller school.

Over 70 undergraduate majors and over 125 graduate degree offerings may be found through Loyola’s various schools, in fields such as law, education, medicine, communications, and pastoral studies, to name a few.

Loyola’s academics are nationally recognized. Ranked consistently as a top national university by U.S. News and World Report, Loyola has also been acknowledged by such organizations as the Carnegie Foundation.

It isn’t only its academics that are praised either. As part of the Jesuit commitment to serving others, Loyola students engage in a range of community service activities throughout the Chicago area and beyond.

As a Jesuit university, student life at Loyola includes a regularly held Mass. Active athletic teams, Greek life and other student organizations and activities are also part of Loyola life.

Financial aid offerings, which include grants and loans, may be discussed with one of Loyola’s financial aid counselors.
