Loyola University Chicago
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars
Loyola and Chicago are places that allow you to create yourself into a person that you want to be. The experiences of being independent in the city and at this university really shapes you into a more well-rounded and wise person. It is a very diverse school with accessible professors who are always willing to help you.

Is Loyola really dedicated to Social Justice?
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars
I love my program and my professors, but the University preaches that it is dedicated to Social Justice but can't protect it's students of color from their own rent-a-cops.
