As a student at Loyola, you have the privilege of going to school in one of the most economically and culturally diverse neighborhoods in all of Chicago; and, in fact, in all of the United States!¹ It is not a mistake that Loyola University Chicago is located in Rogers Park. Like most Jesuit schools, Loyola was established in an urban area where students, faculty, and staff can directly engage with neighbors.²
Explore what Rogers Park has to offer, including great restaurants, independent businesses, unique stores, beautiful beaches, farmers markets, and volunteer opportunities in the community. Check out rogerspark.com/rp/about and the online Ramblin’ Around blog to learn more about the neighborhood we call home.
