The workers here are very friendly, but Loyola doesn't treat them as well as a Jesuit institution should. The food in the dining halls is good, but for halal and other dietary needs, there isn't too much option. The Lake Shore campus is beautiful and small, so if you're looking for a vast, state-school sized campus, you might be a little disappointed. Transit via CTA is free and getting to downtown chicago is super easy. Division I school. Great programs for nursing and business. It is gorgeous here on the lake.
