If you are a potential Loyola undergraduate – or the parent of a would-be undergraduate – I want to underscore two very important messages about our excellent university:
The first is value.
In addition to first-rate professors and programs, vast and meaningful co-curricular pursuits, our beautiful Uptown neighborhood, and our culturally vibrant city of New Orleans, Loyola is affordable.
Each year, we provide our undergraduates more than $45 million in grants and scholarships to help them offset the costs of their educations. I always tell students to apply to the schools they like first and then see if they and their families can make the numbers work. All students who need financial aid at Loyola receive some form of funding. While we cannot promise to make a Loyola education easy to afford, we can make a Loyola education possible to afford.
The second reason for my writing is to let you know that Loyola is one of twenty eight Catholic and Jesuit universities across the United States. Our core values, curriculum, and options for students have a great deal in common with these other schools, which include Georgetown, Boston College, and Santa Clara.
The Loyola University name is recognized around the nation and the world for offering an excellent education and producing well prepared professionals and caring and committed citizens. This will really help you in the years to come. We teach critical thinking and adaptability, essential and timeless tools, especially in times of profound economic and cultural change.
Loyola is among the most generous private universities in the United States. We are habitually touted by US News and World Report as a best value in higher education. When it comes to the funding we offer students, we are in the top seven among the Jesuit universities, and in the top one-third of U.S. private schools.
We believe Loyola could be a great option for your college education.
