    Done with midterms and flying back home for the winter break! It’s a bitter sweet feeling going back home now to me because, as excited as I am to be going home and seeing my family and friends, I am also really going to miss my friends here. I can safely say that I consider […]

    Top 4 APPs I love I notice that people cannot live without their cell phones. No matter where they are, such as cafeterias, buses, and beaches, lots of people focus on their phone.

    If you have ever been to, or rather, are from the so called developing or third world countries, you will understand why the gap between them and the more developed is more pronounced on differences in their technological advancement levels. If you are in America, for instance, and have had an opportunity to visit any […]

    As a crazy pizza fan, there is no reason for me not to try the Deep Dish in Chicago. The first month in Chicago, I tried many different kinds of Pizzerias and took an interesting pizza tour.   After trying some pizzerias near our WTC, some friends and I decided to find the most famous […]

    by Dinah Arafeh

    Hey everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving! I’ll be completely honest; I thought I was going to have the worst thanksgiving break of my life.

    by Giulia Corrado

    A few days ago I had the proof that Americans celebrate Thanksgiving really seriously. Not only do all their families come together to be thankful for what they have, but they also prepare and share a lot of food! I had the pleasure to leave for my roommate’s grandparents’ house the day before the big […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    My Loyola experiences contd An immigration risk! As I pointed out in my previous post, I got my I-20 a couple of days before the commencement of classes; I needed a change to student visa urgently. The option of going back to Nigeria for this posed two challenges for me: one, it would cost a […]
