In 1904, the long-planned Loyola College, together with a preparatory academy, opened its doors. First classes were held in a residence located to the rear of the church on what is now Marquette Place. The first president was the Rev. Albert Biever, S.J., who was appointed by the provincial, Rev. William Power, S.J.

The small class sizes were wonderful for me as a student, and the professors in the humanities department were all very passionate.

I enjoyed the heavy emphasis on social context and resultant community programs available through the university. There was great emphasis on social justice within a wider global context.
