    Chicago Life and Loyola Love

A great way to give back…

November 26th, 2014

by Stephanie Rodriguez

In T-minus 3 hours, Thanksgiving Day will be here.  This beautiful holiday is a great reminder for all of us.  However, this shouldn’t be the only day that you should be thankful for everything you’ve done, accomplished, and/or seen.  Every day should be Thanksgiving Day, but sometimes we get so caught in our “busy lives” […]

by Natalie Pantelis

Last Saturday was a huge night filled with lights-Christmas lights-in downtown Chicago! BMO Harris Bank put on their annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival along Michigan Avenue to kick off the holiday season on Saturday, November 22nd! In this post, I will be discussing the many activities available during the festival, including the activities I was […]

Thank You Loyola

November 26th, 2014

by Christopher Lam

Thank you Loyola for choosing me to be a part of your university. You not only brought me closer to my dreams and aspirations to become a doctor, but you have supported me through clubs and organizations and let me find friends who can be considered true, genuine, and life-long. I am still on my […]

Thankful Loyolans

Thankful Loyolans

    In order to show their gratitude and thankfulness this year, Ramblers took hundreds of post-it notes to a chalkboard on-campus to share what they were thankful for:   Happy Thanksgiving from our Loyola family to yours!  

Honors Recital Review

November 24th, 2014

by Christopher Lam

On November 21, 2014, I attended the Honors Recital in the Mundelein building inside the Skowronski Music Hall. My initial thoughts before attending the recital was that I would hear classical, old-time music from small to moderately-sized ensembles. When passing the Mundelein auditorium on some days, it is quite audible to hear the orchestra make […]

Loyola’s Twist on TED Talks

Loyola’s Twist on TED Talks

November 23rd, 2014

by Jace Sheu

In my free time, I enjoy watching inspirational and educational TED talks online. So, if you’re in the mood for intellectual inspiration, you’ll want to check out our very own university’s version of TED talks, called IGGY Talks, organized by Loyola’s National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH), an honorary organization that represents the top 1% of on-campus […]

In Perspective

November 23rd, 2014

by Brienne Lubor

For me, along with one hundred organic chemistry students in my lecture section, last Sunday was one of the most overwhelming days of the semester.  We were preparing for our third and final exam, which covered four chapters and around fifty reaction mechanisms.  Needless to say the library study room was strewn with open Wade […]

ROME-ing for the Spring of 2015

November 22nd, 2014

by Laura Swanson

“Go forth and set the world on fire” -St. Ignatius of Loyola As I prepare for a semester abroad at the John Felice Rome Center in–you guessed it– Rome, Italy, St. Ignatius’ words have been on my mind. I think the most important word in this quote is simply “Go”. And thanks to the opportunity […]

Volunteer Opportunities in Chicago

November 22nd, 2014

by Brienne Lubor

Hello, Ramblers!  I hope you are as excited as I am as we count down the days to break! This week I have been thinking ahead about next semester, specifically finding a new volunteer opportunity for next semester. Like the majority of students at Loyola, I have volunteered since middle school and view volunteer work as an […]

Tea and Term Papers

November 21st, 2014

by Samantha Eddmeiri

Good study spots are realistically not that hard to find. However, when you’re in downtown Chicago, surrounded by options, where do you go? Water Tower campus is only a block from Michigan Avenue, and there are So. Many. Options. One of my favorite places, however, is Argo Tea. There are a few locations (two within […]
