    International Kids During Easter Break

    April 13th, 2015

    by Lina Lee

    What I really liked about Loyola’s holiday schedule is that we get a week off for spring break and we also get to be off on Easter weekend for two extra days so it feels like a long weekend. Since we international kids live so far away, most of my international friends stayed in town […]


    A New Space

    April 10th, 2015

    by Giulia Corrado

    When it comes to college, one of the many things you will miss during the first semester will most likely be your bed! No one can deny it, but when winter break comes, you will be very happy to see your friends and family again, along with sleeping in your own room. Personal space can […]

    by Vinicius Guerra

    Many different things can weigh on your decision when choosing where to go to college. Before choosing Loyola, I considered many different schools. Fortunately, I got accepted to all of them. I can easily say that I made the best decision when I decided to come to Loyola, which was in fact my top choice. […]


    Spring Break Trip to North Pole!

    March 14th, 2015

    by Amber Xie

    One of the biggest things that I like about studying in America is that you can complete half of things written on your wish list just by travelling in US. I also think the biggest advantage for an international student like me is that you can go travelling with maximum freedom. What I mean is […]


    Getting involved is the key!

    by Giulia Corrado

    Starting a new chapter in your life, such as leaving for college, might sound intimidating, exciting and scary at the same time, but there are many ways you can overcome these mixed emotions. Getting involved is the key! When I first came to Loyola, I was overwhelmed with all the different activities you could get […]


    The comfort of the Loyola library

    February 24th, 2015

    by Innocent Ugwoke

    Yes, when I say comfort, I mean comfort. However, when I talk about the comfort of the library, am not talking about comfort in the generic sense of relaxation, pleasure, resignation, enjoyment and well- being. Yet, concerning the role of the library in the pursuit and achievement of tasking academic rigors, particularly in Loyola, it […]


    International student take on LUC Greek Life

    International student take on LUC Greek Life

    by Katie Spry

    Joining Greek life at Loyola is one of the best things I have done in college. A sorority or fraternity is a group of men (fraternity) or women (sorority), which form either a brotherhood or a sisterhood. These members work together to achieve common goals such as philanthropy and community service. Sororities and Fraternities strive […]


    Fascinating Football, Fascinating Super Bowl

    February 16th, 2015

    by Sihui Xiong

    Before I came to the US, I wasn’t an American football fan at all. Actually I knew nothing about this game at that time. However, when some of my friends asked me to go out and enjoy this annual festival for American people this year, I found I really love this game and enjoyed the […]

    February 9th, 2015

    by Eman El Bakry

    It’s my last blog as a graduate student at Loyola University Chicago because I graduate this week, and so I am filled with mixed emotions. From one side I feel that I did it, I accomplished something that I had aimed to accomplish years ago and it is now a reality. I have traveled across […]

    Ciao amici! Hello from Rome, Italy everyone. I am currently studying abroad at the John Felice Rome Centerand I have felt every emotion under the sun since I’ve been here.
