    by Giulia Corrado

    Hard classes, lots of homework, fighting homesickness, making new friends and laundry; this is what I was most worried about when thinking of starting my first year in college. I was partly right, but I definitely forgot to add one of the most important things to my ‘freshman panic list’: time management. Finding balance was […]

    by Bernice Sitompul

    Arriving at Loyola’s campus a few days before the official start to freshman year, I personally found it most difficult to stop reminiscing the life I had back home in Indonesia.

    Not only was I exposed to this so called “polar vortex” for the first time in my life after living pretty much in a desert, but it was the worst winter that Chicago has witnessed in more than 20 years! So you can imagine the shock I went through! Fortunately, I am very prepared this […]

It is not that uncommon for many international students new to college in the States to feel some sort of disconnect from the rest of the students. […]

    by Fernando Russo

    Now that the finals are over and a new quarter just started I would like to think about what we’ve all been through the last few weeks before finals. It gets crazy right? All day at the library, Saturdays, Sundays and late nights too. I won’t say I am any  different, even though I am […]
