Loyola University Chicago was founded in 1870 by a small group of Jesuits and laypersons. Located on the city’s North Side, the university was originally known as St. Ignatius College, named after its patron saint, Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The school was established to provide an education to students who were unable to attend other universities due to financial or social constraints. The university initially offered classes in philosophy and theology, but gradually expanded its curriculum to include other disciplines such as law, medicine, and business administration.

In 1909, the school changed its name to Loyola University Chicago and moved its campus from downtown Chicago to Rogers Park on the North Side of the city. Throughout its history, Loyola has continued to grow and expand its offerings. In 1925, the university opened its first graduate school, offering programs in medicine and law. In 1942, Loyola opened a second campus in Romeoville Illinois and began offering evening classes for working adults across Chicago’s south side. Over time Loyola has grown into one of the largest Jesuit universities in the United States with campuses located all over Chicagoland area including Water Tower Campus downtown Chicago.
