1,353 Feet in the Air

1,353 Feet in the Air

April 25th, 2015

by Jace Sheu

At 108 stories tall and grandly poised in the heart of Chicago, the Willis Tower held the title of the world’s tallest building for nearly 25 years after its completion in 1973. The Skydeck Chicago, on the 103rd floor, remains the highest observation deck in the U.S. On Friday, I become one of the 1.5 […]

JFRC Prom Night

JFRC Prom Night

April 25th, 2015

by Laura Swanson

Well, I suppose the End of Semester Banquet wan’t exactly prom, but close enough. Getting dressed up, posing for pictures, eating a fancy meal, and spending a night out in Roma as one big JFRC community had it feeling just about like my senior prom. Well, besides the fact that my senior prom wasn’t in […]

Too Much Baggage

April 24th, 2015

by Samantha Eddmeiri

As I’m packing up my room, I’m realizing that I have way too many things. I should have kept in mind that I would be leaving with more than I brought, a consequence of having classes a few blocks off of Michigan Avenue, unfortunately. I found that I had a lot of clothing items that […]

The Heartland Café

April 24th, 2015

by Natalie Pantelis

For all of you organic lovers out there, I found the perfect little place for you! The Heartland Café is a small café off of the Morse stop (just one stop north on the red line from Loyola) that specializes in all-organic and locally grown foods! I have a friend who is a health nut […]

Summer

Summer

April 23rd, 2015

by Christopher Lam

Alright, so I know summer is not here yet. Honestly, it does not feel like summer at all with this recent weather we’ve been having. But as a Chicago native, I shouldn’t be so surprised with the crazy weather. Anyways, in preparation for the summer, I have planned everything out day by day. As I […]

Finals Week and Final Roman Adventures

April 23rd, 2015

by Laura Swanson

Somehow this semester slipped past me and now here I am trying to write end of the semester papers and study for finals…in Rome. It’s hard enough to push through finals week in Chicago and now I’m finding it even harder here. My classes are starting to feel like actual classes and I have to […]

Study Spots: Mundelien

April 22nd, 2015

by Samantha Eddmeiri

Happy Dead week, everyone! If you’re reading this you’re probably procrastinating very very very hard, and to be quite honest I don’t blame you. This week is stressful and not fun for anyone, including your professors. While everyone is preparing for finals, one thing that I really have found an issue is the lack of places […]

Recorded Lectures: a love and hate relationship

April 22nd, 2015

by Stephanie Rodriguez

I cringe every time a professor tells me that they record his or her lectures.  Why?  Well, at that point, he or she is giving me the chance to not listen.  I am tempted and the struggle is real.  However, I understand why the professors do it.  I really do!  I love hand writing all […]

Care for Self

Care for Self

April 22nd, 2015

by Jace Sheu

As my first year of college comes to an end, I find myself instinctively reflecting upon the two semesters I have spent here at Loyola. With inexplicable certainty, I have come to the conclusion that, although I may not be able to ‘feel’ it in a palpable way, the Student Promise has become a significant […]

Lyric Opera’s Carousel

Lyric Opera’s Carousel

April 22nd, 2015

by Natalie Pantelis

This past Friday night, I had the wonderful opportunity of seeing the Lyric Opera’s production of Carousel—for free! In this post, I’m going to tell you all about this stunning performance and how I scored free tickets—and how you can too! (Or at least discounted tickets). Last week, I saw a contest through a company […]
