  Those of you who come from afar, this blog is especially for you. The Midwest region of the United States are not just corn field and soy bean plantations- hard to believe.

The transition from high school to college may be a great leap forward in your life, especially if you are a first-generation student. I know for me, the thought of going though this experience was quite exciting, but scary doing this all alone. I knew no one coming into Loyola University and did not know […]

by Christopher Le

When everyone heard of the new Trump/Devos educational budget, all covfefe broke lose.  ______________________________________________________   I’m pretty sure the word, “covfefe, ” is one of my favorites now. Politics was never an interest of mine growing up. It was rather a bland topic and a subject I was not really strong in, in grade school social […]

If college doesn’t change you, I don’t know what will. In college, you will learn to grow in every aspect and realize your potential.

by Austin Edington

As you all must know by the multitude of blogs I’ve written about it, Loyola has one of the hottest radio stations in the Chicagoland area: 88.7 WLUW. Even if you don’t live in the area, though, you don’t need an FM station to stay tuned to the hottest underground artists we know and love! […]

Is It Really The End? The END?

May 2nd, 2017

Surprisingly enough, this week is Finals Week. It has been quite strange this time. It does not really feel like I ended Junior year nor do I feel like summer vacation next week. I do not know whether or not it is because of the gloomy, cold weather or if it is because I do […]
