Loyola Athletic Facilities Ranked 5th By Princeton Review
BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland has been named one of the nation's top institutions for undergraduate higher education by The Princeton Review in its latest annual college guide, The Best 379 Colleges.
Loyola appears on two of the guide's specialty lists, ranking No. 2 in the country for "Best College Dorms" and fifth for "Best Athletic Facilities." Loyola is also included on the "Best Northeastern Colleges" list in the section of the guide that features top schools by region.
"Each time Loyola is lauded by a nationally-recognized organization like The Princeton Review, it reaffirms what I see in our community on the Evergreen campus every day: excellent students striving to become future leaders who will serve as men and women for others, and exceptional faculty, staff, and administrators who are dedicated to offering those students a uniquely transformative educational experience steeped in our Jesuit values," said Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president of Loyola.
Residence halls at Loyola are no stranger to The Princeton Review's "Best College Dorms" list. The No. 2 ranking this year is up from No. 3 in 2013 and 2012, and the same as 2011. Loyola operates 14 residence halls, including a mix of traditional doubles, suites, apartments, and townhomes.
The "Best College Dorms" accolade is especially relevant for Messina, Loyola's new living-learning program for first-year students. Messina is designed to help students adjust quickly to college-level work and forge a clear path to success at Loyola and in the life and career that will follow. Two-thirds of the incoming class of 2018 will participate in Messina. By fall 2015, all first-year students will be part of the program.
In summer 2013 Loyola officially moved to the Patriot League and completed upgrades to the 2,100-seat Reitz Arena. Loyola's Ridley Athletic Complex, the 6,000-seat home of the University's NCAA Division I lacrosse and soccer programs, is one of the most iconic facilities of its kind in the nation. In addition, the Fitness and Aquatic Center features a two-story indoor rock-climbing wall, a fitness center, a multi-court gymnasium, and a swimming pool with a 500-seat spectator area.
The Princeton Review chooses the 379 schools based on their outstanding academic programs, and only 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges are included. Colleges are not ranked academically or from 1 to 379 in any category. Instead, The Princeton Review reports 62 ranking lists of the top 20 colleges in various categories. The lists are entirely based on The Princeton Review's survey of 130,000 students (about 343 per campus on average) attending the colleges.
