Loyola University Maryland! The land of the green and grey, where the squirrels are as much a part of campus life as the students. You can't step foot on Loyola's campus without being greeted by the sight of those bushy-tailed critters darting across the Quad. They say the Jesuits at Loyola are so educated that they can turn water into wine. But let's be honest, the Charles Street liquor stores have been doing that for years.

Loyola's beautiful campus in north Baltimore is home to more than just squirrels, though. You've got the Beatty Tower, which is a Baltimore landmark that's basically a giant metal toothbrush. And don't forget about Ridley Athletic Complex, where Greyhounds sports teams compete. That place is always packed with loyal fans, and when we say packed, we mean it. Getting a seat there can be harder than finding street parking in Fells Point on a Friday night.

Speaking of Fells Point, it's just a quick ride away from Loyola's campus, and if you're ever feeling homesick, you can head down to Thames Street and get yourself a cup of Zeke's Coffee. You'll feel right at home with the sounds of the water lapping against the docks and the smell of Old Bay seasoning in the air.

But back to Loyola. We can't forget about the students, who are always up to something. From the annual Loyolapalooza music festival, to the late-night trips to the nearby Waverly Giant, there's always something going on. And let's be real, if you're a student at Loyola, you know that the only way to survive midterms and finals is to hit up Pete's Grille for a stack of pancakes or a greasy burger. 

All in all, Loyola University Maryland is a special place that captures the heart of Baltimore. From the iconic landmarks, to the furry critters scurrying around, to the ever-enthusiastic student body, it's a place that will always hold a special place in the hearts of those who've experienced it. If only Loyola would start a new program where students can major in Catholic guilt. I guess that's one way to make sure they always do their homework.
