Are You Sure I’m Almost a Senior?

Are You Sure I’m Almost a Senior?

April 28th, 2016

by Laura Swanson

I promise you that just last year I was moving into a college dorm for the first time, trying to decide on a major and making new friends. Or maybe I was back for round two, just starting to get the hang of things, making some really good friends and even spending a semester abroad […]

Summer is Coming

April 28th, 2016

  As we wrap up the projects and exams and say goodbye to our freshman year, It’s interesting to look back and see just how much we’ve changed over the last nine months. In August I was eighteen and anxious. I started this year without any friends, I started this year with a roommate, I […]

Making Use of Time 101

Making Use of Time 101

April 27th, 2016

Sometimes we become so caught up on what we HAVE to do, rather than what we CAN do. Don’t let a list of plans overwhelm you from doing it. I have learned to make use of my time by not overworking myself nor wasting my time. This doesn’t necessarily have to be school related, but in […]

Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

April 26th, 2016

It seems like every American knows about sororities and fraternities, and the not-always-positive image of them that exists because of movies like Neighbors and Legally Blonde. People see them as white, full of, well, the type of people whose appropriate adjectives I can’t type in my position as an employee for my school. Of course, most […]

Finals are Approaching!

Finals are Approaching!

April 25th, 2016

by Christopher Lam

Isn’t it surprising how fast this semester was and how finals was creeping behind your back the whole time, ready to lunge at you unexpectedly? Yes. This is what it feels like. Finals week will begin next week, starting from Monday, May 2, to Saturday, May 7. Since I am taking 18 credit hours of […]

One of the perks of living with two seniors is getting to share in the joy of end of semester celebrations. As far as senior events go, Damen Ball has got to be one of the most exciting. This dance comes at the end of the spring semester each year as a sort of ‘senior […]

Sophomore Year Reflections

April 22nd, 2016

by Theresa Amato

A big part of the Jesuit community involves reflection. We use reflection as a tool to tap into our past life in order to improve our future lives. Reflection is something highly valued in the Loyola Community, so I’ll take this chance to share my reflections with you as a fellow student. As I’ve mentioned before, I […]

10 Things I Did Not Expect About Loyola

10 Things I Did Not Expect About Loyola

April 22nd, 2016

by Meredith Simmons

    Every school is different, and for the incoming college freshman, they’re all unknown territory. Now you can read any number of student testimonials and pictures, but you’ll never actually know till you’re there. So why should you read my list? Well, because you still want to know what you’re getting yourself into before […]

Spring Finals Breakfast

Spring Finals Breakfast

April 20th, 2016

by Husna Afzal

Finals are approaching faster than it may seem, and as nerve wracking that sounds, the bright side is that summer break is almost here! You should be preparing for finals because you’re going to have a lot of reviewing to do, depending on how many exams you have, whether they’re cumulative or not, and the […]

Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

April 19th, 2016

One of the biggest aspect of colleges is class. Unexpected, right? Not nearly so much as you would think. There are also other essential components to the college experience, but class is pretty high up there on the list, definitely a tie for first with whatever you love. After all, it’s kind of the reason […]
