Loyola College FAQs

Ques. Which is the more superior college, Madras Christian College or Loyola College Chennai?

Ans. It depends on the course you want to study. Some of the courses of Loyola College like Bachelor of Humanities is excellent in terms of faculty and curriculum while Some courses of Madras Christian College beat Loyola College when it comes to the curriculum, e.g B.Sc.

Ques. Is Loyola College Co-ed?

Ans. Yes, Loyola College is co-ed for all PG Courses and Bachelors in Visual Communication. For rest courses, it is not co-ed.

Ques. Which college is better for BBA Course- MCC or Loyola College?

Ans. It entirely depends on what you want. If you want a wholesome experience of college life. I strongly suggest you join MCC. But if you're looking to study in college. Loyola will be a better option. MCC has a lot of diversity in its students with most of the students coming around from all parts of India. Whereas, you're more likely going to study with a majority of Chennai crowd at Loyola.

Ques. Is there any dress code at Loyola College?

Ans. There is no such thing called dress code, unlike some Engineering or Medical colleges. However, you can't wear torn jeans and a round neck tee shirt. What college wants from the students is that the proper dress. 

Ques. How is the Infrastructure of Loyola College?

Ans. Excellent infrastructure and a beautiful looking campus. The canopy of trees covering the pathways protecting you from the scorching sun of Chennai makes you never want to leave the campus once you enter, probably one of the best looking campuses in south India.

In conclusion, this college can be your second option if you're not able to go anywhere else like outstation ( Bangalore, pune) Else this college sometimes got a great campus life it's filled with greens around. The College management is pretty much good which all the rules and regulations. The Colleges officials are a bit lavish lifestyle. At the end of the day you will not regret to be a part of this college but I have.

Remarks -

Excellent college but the non-reacting staves are not so helpful for the students. They are so aggressive. For example there is an office called LSSS inside the campus. The staves are not helpful and they shout at the students.

LOYOLA COLLEGE EXPERIENCE

Remarks -

Only positive not negative comments. Placements : About 50% of the students got an internship in companies like Deloitte and Goldman Sachs. Students are also benefitted very well for giving a source of income which helped to support their own academic fees of the course. Infrastructure : The college provides various facilities for the students. It has a free Wi-Fi connection in the hostel as well as in college. Classrooms are very airy, and it can accommodate more than eighty students in each class
