At Loyola University New Orleans, we pride ourselves on offering our student athletes big school experiences with small school relationships. The Jesuit approach to education is foremost in our philosophy, and we strive to develop the whole person (mind, body, and spirit). We also endeavor to enhance the college experience for the entire university by maintaining a successful athletics program.
Beginning in the 1920s, intercollegiate athletics at Loyola gave students an opportunity to prosper and develop into the leaders of our society. After a 20-year hiatus, in 1991, Loyola students made it known that they wanted an athletic program by creating a unique, non-scholarship intercollegiate athletics program—one of the programs in the nation completely created and funded by students. In 2004, another change was implemented as we initiated a program to give athletic scholarships (the first since 1972).
Today, our athletics program operates 13 intercollegiate sports and is home to some of the most well-rounded student-athletes in intercollegiate athletics. Our teams routinely earn a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher and receive academic honors regionally as well as nationally.
We compete in the NAIA, Division 1, as a member of the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC).
