Why Loyola? From the moment I walked through the door, I was comfortable. While touring the school, the faculty and students were so welcoming. I knew it would become my second home.
Favorite Memory at Loyola: Standing on the stairs and applauding the seniors on their last day. It was one of those moments at Loyola where I truly felt at home. It was so incredible to see how genuinely happy everyone was for the seniors.
Favorite Event at Loyola: Sports Night is my favorite event because it is a time when the entire school comes together to support one another.
Favorite Teacher at Loyola: Ms. Gilfillan is my favorite teacher because she is the type of person that is serious when it is the time to be serious, but is also the type of person that you can have a laugh with.
Best time of the year at Loyola: Christmas at Loyola! I love the fact that we all exchange gifts. It's one of the advantages of being in a small school. The door decorating competition is also something that is extremely fun.
Favorite Loyola Grad at Grad characteristic: "Open to Growth" because at Loyola, there is an environment set up in which everyone wants you to do your best. There is always someone to catch you if you fall, which is why everyone feels so comfortable to try something new. I also think that this characteristic is extremely important to have in life, even outside of school.
