Well, it’s not like that at all. Most of the tuition money goes to the books, and all the things they are provided in the campus. Some of the clubs include; Cultural/ethnic clubs, Academic honors organizations, Media organizations, service/spiritual groups, Hobby/special Interest groups etc. Sports include; Basketball, Golf, Cross Country, Lacrosse, Soccer etc.
What i liked about Loyola University is that it offers more majors than some other Universities. I also like that it tries to inspire students to do better and to try and thrive in making a change, not only that but the sports, and clubs. I dislike that its tuition fee is higher than other schools, That some students drink alcohol and leave it on the floor, and the drug there are. The University sets apart from other colleges to me because I’ve been looking more into these college more than any other colleges because to me it offers more than other colleges or Universities out there. I would highly recommend this University to other students who want to thrive and learn, and are willing to make a change in the world, not only their community. The types of students who would be comfortable are the students who are taking honor classes, even CP classes people who not only put more than just effort to highschool but are putting more effort into doing something out of their comfort zone.
